PNG Warrior – a Papua New Guinean website

PNG Warrior is a website /blog /e-zine dedicated to promoting martial arts and artists from Papua New Guinea (PNG). The website was established early this year and has grown a small but loyal following with 72 Facebook followers and 121 email subscribers.

The site publishes any generic information on martial arts and is open to all styles and clubs. It gives martial arts clubs and styles in the country an opportunity to put out their news.

Origins – the beginning of a site

The concept of creating a martial arts website had been planted in my mind for a while and I had played around developing a couple of dummy sites. However, I could never come up with a catch name for the site – so I left it – until my friend, Andrew Molen, came up with the name PNG Warrior for a Facebook he had created. The name grabbed my attention – it was exactly what I was looking for.

The next day I emailed Andrew and asked for his permission to use the name, and then I started on the site. It actually started as a blog on wordpress.com which eventually I bought the domain and turned into a website.

The endless future – dreams, goals and endless possibilities

I hope to one day turn the website into a fully functioning e-zine with contributions coming in from writers all over the country. However, finances have been a problem. In the meantime, I have joined WordAd, Wordpress’ own ad program akin to Google’s AdSense in the hopes of generating some revenue to sustain the site.

I have also thought of the possibility of selling ad space to corporations /business in the country. However, due to the small traffic to the site, I have put that option on hold.
