Last Friday at Aloha Friday I shared about needing to write a post on A MAUI BLOG’s purpose or mission. I need to write a post on ABOUT A MAUI BLOG. While doing so I realized the need to re-organize. I had to re-think and come up with the new ways on how I am going maintain this blog to keep up with it’s mission.
While the main purpose of this blog is to help promote Maui’s culture and share the aloha spirit to everyone, one of the auxiliary mission is to help promote Maui business especially in this time of economic crisis. (Many of the owners of these small businesses do not have the time to start and maintain a blog of their own to promote their site. Many of them do not even know what a blog is. Many opted to pay for a traditional website, and after paying a large amount of money setting it up, it’s buried in the internet because they couldn’t afford to hire someone to do the SEO.)
As I think more about that, one thing that really stood out is the need to turn this blog into a collaborative blog. As much as I wanted to write a lot of quality posts talking story of Maui’s business, I realized that I have limited time on my hands. If I want this blog to have a substantial amount of quality content, I need to create a team… an A MAUI BLOG OHANA. Therefore, I can focus on the administrative and social networking aspect of the blog. I can focus on promoting while ensuring that when readers come here, they will find quality, helpful posts. You know what the blog experts always say: content is the king 🙂
And so for the next couple of weeks, I will focus my energy in doing just that. Forming an A MAUI BLOG OHANA, and spreading the word about the collaboration that is about to happen here.
