Re: the blogs…..there is a dearth of blog activity these days. Tiffany E-H’s blog doesn’t have nearly the following that it used to….I wouldn’t even recommend advertising on it these days. And her newspaper’s a joke these days because it’s so damned hard to read.
Damon Tucker’s blog got turned off by his provider so he’s just doing his stuff on his facebook page. Even Rob Tucker’s PunaWeb forums generates less interest because everyone gets tired of the same ole people ranting the same ole way. So E. Hawaii’s blogs are definitely in a slump these days. I continue to use PunaWeb to post things because at least that gets it out in the ether. And plenny people read the notices without commenting. Which is jes’ fine by me…..Laters, Frankie
Frankie Stapleton, a former newspaper reporter who is active in local politics, is helping out with the campaign of Joy San Buenaventura, who is running for State House District 4, seeking to unseat Rep. Faye Hanohano. She recently wrote an email suggesting San Buenaventura not advertise with BIC in print or on the web. The email made it’s way to me. i was hurt, of course, because Stapleton acts friendly to me in person and never bothered to share her thoughts about BIC when she has seen me. And who likes people trying to interfere with your effort to earn an honest income?! But after the initial sting from what I view as vicious words, I did start to see them as food for thought. It is true that I have been pretty uninspired to post on this website lately. But everything is temporary. I have great plans to kick it into gear and start getting into election coverage. Stapleton also makes a point about the small font of my newspaper. I try to pack in as much as I can with the small font. But I have heard feedback from others that I should increase the font to standard newspaper size. I am in production now, so I will see about masking that change. Does anybody else want to tell me what they think, or do they prefer to talk about me behind my back, or stupidly write an email bad mouthing me, without regard for the fact that emails can be easily forwarded… And forwarded… and then copied and pasted like you see above. And shared on Facebook and Twitter and floating around all over the World Wide Web. May we all take note. And let our word be gold. — Tiffany Edwards Hunt.
