I’m not sure whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing. Tui’s Place (that’s someone elses place, not this Tui Place) happens to be “Pattaya’s ONLY Gay Guest Houses RIGHT-ON Jomtien Beach, Thailand”. I’m wondering if I’m picking up any traffic from Googlers who think this site is in some way affiliated with it ? I’m wondering how confused they might be, or whether I might get a booking sometime soon. Maybe I should should just set up a bookings and payment form and then send back travel instructions on how to get to Thailand. Maybe Tui’s Place could put a reciprocal link on their page to me – I mean, they’re probably getting thousands of hits a day from people searching for this Tui Place !! How confused, shocked and disappointed potential readers would be I can’t imagine. Any tips on how to improve my page ranking would be very welcome, since Tui Place (Taveuni) is currently on page 4, all previous results being related to our Thai namesake.
The more observant reader – and if you’re wishing to book Tui’s Place and are still reading this then that’s not you – may have noticed some additions to the right hand sidebar. There’s an RSS feed from the Fiji Times to bring you the latest news items, and a link through to Tripadvisor, which I need to tinker with a bit more to make it bring up some useful Taveuni and Fiji related stuff. My latest attempts to keep this blog reasonably focused. These giant improvements have pushed numerous technological boundaries here at Webmaster Central. Next week I might add Taveuni Streetview, which will involve me driving around one-handed with a video camera hanging out of the window whilst trying to avoid chickens, pigs, goats and potholes. The following week we may start doing interviews with famous Taveunians – Colin, for example, who is very famous indeed, and Lady Gaga.
Lots to look forward to, eh ?!?!? I’ll meet you on Page 1 next week. If I’m not there try Page 2.

The beginnings of my Fiji retirement plan and how my mother almost joined me on Taveuni for her own retirement, ultimately cut short by illness and her passing in 2009.
Sidestepping Mr Bonkers
As an ex-pat living in Paradise there’s a real risk of Going Troppo. Will animal exploitation fill some time and the bank account, or will it be a one way ticket on the crazy bus ?
