About & Sponsorship


Wow… first of all I’m astounded that you even found this page… Mahalo for visiting it.

Let me introduce myself.  I’m Damon Tucker and I blog because I enjoy getting information out to the community and I feel our local “mainstream” media here on the island doesn’t give us the full story at times.  If you came here from my blog in the Huffington Post understand that this site is much different then the Huff and my site is mine and not owned by someone else.

Some Page Stats:

I receive about 50,000 – 60,000 page visits each month and have more than 15,300+ folks following me on Twitter… if that means anything to you.  With more then 3.4 million page visits to my site, I feel very fortunate to be ranked as one of the top blogs in Hawaii according to Blog Rank.

I love blogging about anything and everything and I will support most causes that I believe are beneficial to Hawaii in general.  Often times I will go on sponsored trips to help promote the Island.  Sometimes  I feel that we don’t get the media coverage that we should at times.

Sponsorship of my blog:

I’m always seeking sponsors of this blog and folks looking to trade interesting events for coverage of their events.

I don’t get compensated for what I blog about other then free tickets at times… so I’ll try my best to represent what I’m blogging about as I’m blogging about sponsored events.

If you know or think your event sucks… it would be better not to ask me to cover it… because I will say it sucks.

If you have an awesome hotel room, an awesome dinner or an awesome whatever… feel free to drop me an email at damontucker @ yahoo.com and let me find out for myself.

Ad Rates (six month minimum purchase):

  • $50.00 per month for a 6 month ad ($300.00)
  • $40.00 per month for a 1 year ad ($480.00)

    Love your site man. I own some land in Hawaiin Ocean View Estates, and have never seen it! Have owned it for 10 years. Is is a nice place, and should I build a second home there? Looking forward to getting your comments soon. Thanks.

  3. Aloha Damon,
    I sent something to you awhile ago, thought you’d like to see actual arrest records and contacts for some of the people I commented about, it’s really quite funny.
    Merry Christmas and hopefully we all have a wonderful year!

  4. Aloha! My mom is Lola Zike, who works with you at the census. She suggested that I contacted you because I am trying to find ways to get the word out to landlords on the Hilo side to please allow pets in this emergency situation. As you probably know, most landlords in the area do not allow pets. But because of the lava flow, there are sooo many families with animals looking for new homes. If they can’t find homes that accept animals, hundreds of animals may become homeless and abandoned. So I want to ask landlords to please just make an exception because of this emergency and allow pets. They can ask for a pet deposit. My mom speaks highly of your blog and thought you might be willing to post something about this issue. Would you please do that? Feel free to contact me by email. Mahalo.

  5. Dear Damon, By a quirk I first found your blog back in Aug and quickly became one of the thousands who obsessively started their day by checking in on your blog. As we moved from hurricane to lava your daily blogs felt like updates from a neighbor or a friend who too lived and loved Puna. Your hard work is appreciated. Your contribution to our community is inestimable. It is with deepest gratitude I sign this, Laura Wolf

  6. Great site. I found you by following a USGS piece that referred to workers measuring flow. I have friends on the Big Island and have visited once and am both fascinated and concerned. I am in New York.
