Our thanks to Arthur Frommer, the curmudgeonly original travel evangelist, who has written positive comments about Beat of Hawaii many times over the past year. Arthur likes our similarly sassy, irreverent and candid perspectives which we share from our home state of Hawaii.
This week, Arthur wrote an article on his blog that contrasts us with Go Visit Hawaii. It’s a site written by a visitor to Hawaii based in North Carolina. We think both sites offer a unique perspective for travelers.
Arthur’s comments about Beat of Hawaii this week included:
“…Extremely perceptive comments, insights and disclosures about travel to Hawaii…produced by two local residents with high journalistic standards for their investigations and reports…it frequently conveys useful information for people planning or contemplating a trip there.”
Rob and I aspire to embody Beat of Hawaii with our global travel and analytic viewpoint, as well as a distinctly local Hawaii flavor.
I remain tenacious about helping you find the Hawaii deals you seek, and on critical reporting of the travel industry as it relates to Hawaii and beyond. Rob’s focus is Hawaii culture, tips, current events, trip reports and reviews, as well as to keep me under control.
We never envisioned Beat of Hawaii as a run-of-the-mill travel website, and are committed to authentic, interpretive content that you won’t find elsewhere. That is why we believe more than half our readers are travel industry professionals.
Mahalo nui loa to our readers and to travel industry advocates like Arthur and Pauline Frommer. If you enjoy Beat of Hawaii, your comments about us on Arthur’s blog are welcome.
