"Don't do something permanently stupid because you are temporarily upset."
The total blogosphere is moving up in hits from the beginning of the year as expected. Not much because of the transportation problem. But the city has to cannibalize the bus system for the rail. A messed up deal like I have never seen in my life. We are talking ten years. There is still an outside chance that the "Fiasco" can be stopped.

Town Dancer has regained its first place in the hit order and like all the other blogs, the Guest Author is crucial. One more Guest Author blogging twice per month will send the hits up to 300. Not many understand synergism. And it even affects our other blogs. We must be patient.
Oahu And Beyond is still to make regular contact with a neighbor island, but that will happen too. And Calvin does a good job on the overseas stuff. Richie needs some help in the Club Circuit. The Web sites on the neighbor islands are still very powerful, but there will be Blogging there. They had a nice one on Kauai, don't know what happened there.
Our five blogs on the bottom will remain in the twenties (hits per day) for a while. The new year and my accessibility to the functions will settle things. I expect Oahu - West to emerge from all the bottom ones, mainly because of the Kokua from Kapolei Chapter HBDA, and perhaps from the dance functions at Aliamanu Intermediate which will now be included in Oahu - West.
Dance Hawaii may help, but most are not very much interested in blogging, so we must be patient there too. They have a Web site so that makes it doubly difficult. Who needs a Blog? We must be patient and the hits keep going up ever so slowly. The reader/dancers are there we just need a little more information and photo sharing to make this real Social Media.
Pub's Side Note: Blogs are more personal, direct and more current communication, They leave an opening for comments in each blog and they are receptive to more formal answers and opinions in the blog itself. The hits go through the ceiling. Real Social Media is much different than anything we have come across before.
