Unfortunately, as most of you know… I was hired as the Big Island East Hawaii Census Supervisor and I was doing training when this happened the other week.

However… I will just say…. Zoom Zoom… keep a watch out for my blog.  As I have mentioned previously… I was gonna have an interesting year w/ my blog.

I appreciate all those that are making it happen for me.

Hawaii Island Journal… Online

This is pretty cool.  It looks like the Hawaii Island Journal has gone online.

…Because of cost and accessibility, we intend to operate the Journal as an internet only publication. Instead of being limited by print distribution methods and resources, we hope that people far and wide will find our website…

They’ve only posted a few articles, but it looks like they will be posting some of their older printed articles online soon enough in their “Archives”.

You can check out their “Site” The Hawaii Island Journal although it looks like they are using a very familiar blog template.

I look forward to reading their posts and seeing what these folks can do with their site.

The more folks that we can get online… the more information that can be shared amongst all of us.
