Hau’oli Makahiki Hou 2017

Normally at this time, I do “The Tasty Island Year in Review”, however for some reason WordPress didn’t send me the annual statistics report as it usually does. That would have included figures such as who made the most comments (Podagee of da’ Year), which posts were most popular and total site traffic. I will  say upon looking at the statistics that it’s been yet a very active year here at The Tasty Island, earning it an “A+” on the overall status report.

I was thinking of changing the site theme (the layout and design) for 2017 for a fresh new look, however I decided to keep it the way it is for another year or so. It may not be fancy and modern with cool full screen sliders and “masonry” stacked, modular tiled images, however main thing is it’s still responsive on mobile devices (scales properly to small displays), and gets the message out in a simply-to-navigate blog format.

While not a “resolution”, my main goal here for the new year is to be much more active with more frequent new posts of restaurant reviews, recipe demos and ono ‘kine foodie ideas to share.

Well, to you and yours, here’s to a Happy New Year in 2017.

    Have a good year. I actually tried a restaurant because of this blog, Signature at Ala Moana. Left my review, but I was very happy with experience.

      @ Dan – How ironic you mention old school eateries, as it was just announced in the news today that as of today, Diners Drive-In (the only one remaining) in Waimalu Shopping Plaza will close for good good, after being in business since 1963. No word on the reason.

      @ Pat – I read your review. Sounds like you folks enjoyed it at Signature. How can you NOT with that million dollar bird’s eye view! I’m actually surprised you chose there over Hy’s.

      @ Ken – I sure hope it will be. 2016 was just, WOW.

        Well, the younger generation chipped in for Signature…. Kids. Apparently it has a very popular cocktail hour.

        Pomai,
         
         My father always used to tell me every day was like a new chapter in a book; you just turned the page.
         
        Always look at and understand your strengths, weakness and live accordingly for a happy and prosperous life.
         
        Everything that happens in life has a purpose as it is up to you depending on your objectives and alternatives to make things better make things worse or leave them alone to self-correct conflicts.

    Happy New Year to you as well Pomai.  Been lurking mostly in the last six months due to a new job but think of Hawaii often and look forward to my next adventure there.  Thank You for keeping this site alive and the dreams current and relevant.
