HUUUUIII....... Anybody Stay?

December 12th, 2013

In all honesty, I can't believe how long I've been writing dis blog considering I don't even like writing.

Wassup Wit Dat!

But I do it cause there's an air of "fun" in da banter dat goes on and it's even more exciting to find out dat once in awhile we get new readers - and lose a few too - as da blog isn't promoted as WWD! used to be.

Plus, I haven't fully vested my time into WWD! with starting a new job, a five month old infant in addition to my three year old and still trying to "take kea" of things all ovah, da blog has lost some of it's "edge" and sometimes I put up some boring posts. I am more disappointed in myself not being able to "converse" with everybody and losing our connection but I sincerely do try and will keep on trying.

I have a handful of mo'olelo's dat are still floating in my coconut shell but by da time I try to put da pen to paper, fo'get already. :sad:

So out of curiosity sake, I'm wondering really - who's out there? Whether you one Lurkah, Lanceformer or Kwonic - you still stay or wat? I've always - still do - trip out wen get one new person who posts or wen get one long time reader who hasn't posted in months/years post out of da blue again. It's so unreals to read people's similar - and differing - views and of course, get da kine haters who gotta hate and then get da kine ohana type wea I get scoldings too. :grin:

And if you been reading WWD! long enough, you know I take it all in stride - criticism, praise, watevahs and all. It's me shooting straight from da heart and I say wat I mean and mean wat I say so I'm comfortable wit dat.

But I know why da WWD! Faithful continue to read, cause you need somebody to laugh at, tease or wag your fingah at and trust me, das cool to do cause das wat WWD! is hea for. :wink:

So regardless if you've been reading forevah or a new reader..... try post cause I really am curious to see who's [still] out there..... or at least taking a break from shopping. lol

    Can't remember wen I joined this blog, but at my age, 88, it's been sort of my connection back to Hawaii. Drafted in '44, returned to islands and left for good in '52. Visit ohana now and then, but they are getting few in number, and pretty soon gone. Braddah Lance is the salt of the land and has a very big heart, especially to continuing his pet project with kids baseball coaching. With a full plate he still has time for others shows how he cares for his fellow people. Thank goodness for likes of the Braddah. Mahalo, and a Merry Christmas to your Family. Will deal New Year later.
