Inaugural Kwaj-Net Blog Post

Welcome to the Inaugural Kwaj-Net Blog Post!

What is this blog all about?

The Kwaj-Net Blog is a centralized place to discover recent news about Kwajalein, The Marshall Islands, The Northern Mariana Islands and the broader Western Pacific Islands.  The news is pertinent to people living in these areas who wish to keep abreast of happenings (political, environmental, travel, etc.) around them.

What is Kwaj-Net?

Kwaj-Net is all about community, building relationships and sharing information with people that have a common bond.  Kwajalein Island, part of Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands is that bond.  Kwaj-Net is a series of websites and social media properties linked together for the purpose of raising the awareness of Kwajalein, its residents (past, present and future), employment on Kwaj and connecting lost friends.

Kwaj-Net Online Resources:

Kwaj-Net - The original, and perhaps the first, Kwaj dedication website was established in October, 1994. Developed and maintained by Bob Raymond, its intent is two-fold: 1) To tell his personal island story; and 2) Provide information about Kwajalein and provide links to Kwajalein related websites.  Kwaj-Net will be expanding to include pages for videos, recent Kwajalein Jobs Listings, Kwaj-Net Twitter compilations, updates to the Kwajalein Websites List and a few ongoing mystery pages.  The redesign should be launching in Q4 2012.  Please VISIT Kwaj-Net

Kwaj-Net Facebook - Started in March 2012, it is rapidly accumulating fans.  The news and information is predominantly Kwajalein specific, but occasional posts, videos, photos and fan conversations cover various Pacific Island topics.  Please LIKE Kwaj-Net Facebook

Kwaj-Net Twitter - This is THE news source for things happening in ALL of Kwajalein, The Marshall Islands, The Northern Mariana Islands and the broader Western Pacific Islands.  These are Tweets about news and events that are found across the Web: The Blogosphere, The Socialsphere and The Twitterverse.  Please FOLLOW Kwaj-Net Twitter

Kwaj-Net YouTube - You will find an ongoing list of Kwajalein videos that have been found from all over YouTube.  Videos from other sources may be found on the Kwajalein Videos page of the original Kwaj-Net website once the page is launched.  Please SUBSCRIBE to Kwaj-Net YouTube

Let's Get Connected - Please share these sites freely with all of your Kwaj friends and let's grow these communities so we can hear everybody's stories, reconnect with old friends and provide the richest set of information for anybody wanting to find out more about Kwajalein.

Thanks, komol tata and mahalo,
