Welcome to the New Hawaii Files Blog

Sunrise of January 15

Aloha and Welcome to the new home of The Hawaii Files Blog. My name is Mel and I am host and publisher in chief of this blog and The Hawaii Files domain.

The purpose of this blog is to showcase, report and comment on anything and everything related to living in or visiting the Hawaiian islands. Topics covered will include places to see, things to do, news and issues impacting residents, business and visitors.

The site and blog will also be a forum to display photos that I have taken in Hawaii over the years.

Components of The Hawaii Files website include this blog, The Hawaii Files domain and links, the Hawaii Files Blog Archive and Mel’s Hawaii at the Hawaii.HawaiiFiles.com subdomain.

Aloha, and thanks for stopping by.
