New Blog Going on My ‘Roll: “Wordful” Out of Kamuela, Hawaii

I’ve been reading Charles Bohannan’s blog “Wordful”  for the last few weeks and I’m amazed this guy hasn’t caught the attention of the Director of Public Works!  (Just teasing Charles).

Charles Bohannan and I am a writer, editor and so-called go-getter. Not quite a poet as you can see. My intent is to help solo web publishers like you (and me) succeed in professional blogging…

…I live in Kamuela, Hawaii (the Big Island) with my family. And yes, I consider myself very lucky in many ways…surfing being one of them. Wordful is solely owned and operated by me, but I hope to build it far beyond that one day.

I welcome Charles to my ‘Roll and look forward to learning more from a “Professional Blogger” right here on the Big Island.
