Where do we go from here? Which is the way that’s clear?”
— David Essex “Rock On”
The first song above came out in 1972. The second: 1973.
Here we are going on 50 years and this stuff is still in my head.
So, let’s apply these lyrics to my life. Well, I’m not an astronaut and I’m not alone, but starting this website was kind of a big thing for me. God, I’m damned proud of it.
But in a way, I’m alone. No boss. No co-workers. Kind of like a solo ride in space, or, if you will, cyberspace. Yeah? And it’s been nothing but absolutely GREAT, with a great view of the world not constrained by temporal things like bosses and co-workers and commuting.
The second song is more apt to where I’m at, though. Where is this endeavor headed? So far, the readership and support has been outstanding!!!
All I know is there is a ton of potential for sports websites in the new world of Internet journalism. And the ground is especially fertile in sports-crazed Hawaii.
Pen is on paper, fingers are on the keyboard and, God willing, the direction the Bedrock websites is going is UP. (Image credit: TheWriter.com).
So the goal is to go grow and grow and grow, and so it’s true that I’m dreaming big while sitting here in between a voluntary layoff from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser in June 2020 and the hope of an all-systems-go liftoff to a bright future that is beckoning.
— A well-placed “brought to you by” commercial: Thank you, thank you, thank you, first and foremost to Waikiki Malia Outrigger Hotel, Rivals Waikiki, and Ray Prosek’s Re/Max Aloha Homes. They are the top dogs as far as sponsoring the Bedrock sites so far. But there are more who rate high with their immense support: Astrategy Marketing with Alison Koyanagi, Lotus Designs with Kalani Watt, Aurora Design and Consulting with Trip Rems, LBD Coffee with Les Drent, Bambooshoot.co with Vince Abramo, CindyLuis.com with Cindy Luis, Amare Global, ZZType with Blaine Fergerstrom, My Glass Guy with Ryan Donohue, and Cappello Truck Center with Kristen and Jimmy Cappello.
So while waiting between layoff and liftoff, the top 35 most-read stories are linked below. It’s for your reading enjoyment — a value-added bonus!!! Plus, I figure if you scan the headlines, you may come across something that piques your interest.
The links below are numbered 1 through 35 and are separated by the various publications the stories ran in.
