All the 165+ web files of Bermuda Online (BOL) are authored, written and updated solely by Bermudian-British author and BOL Editor Keith Archibald Forbes (pictured, top). Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org showing BOL as your subject. (It was a different email address until recently but the volume of junk mail became so bad a change became necessary). With his wife Lois also disabled and Bermudian, he is a Member of the Society of Authors, see http://www.societyofauthors.org. He began Bermuda Online (BOL) in 1990. It was purchased in 1991 from Keith by The Royal Gazette daily newspaper in Bermuda. BOL is still the only major website about Bermuda with everything done in-house including website administration and web-mastering. Keith is a former member of Bermuda's Broadcasting Commission, Consumer Affairs Board, Board of Education, Junior Chamber International, Reserve Constabulary, Bermuda Regiment, Kiwanis and more. He spends more than 28 hours a week in administering, maintaining, updating and web-mastering BOL files and replying promptly to relevant emails. BOL has grown hugely. (On October 1, 2005 BOL's size was 35.4 MB. But on October 31, 2019, under the same author for the last 28 years, BOL's size is more than 10 times bigger, at 358 MB, now comprising 3365 items including 165+ sub-sites on Bermuda, copyrighted photos and graphics - and still growing).
Bermuda Online (BOL), still published independently, was acquired by The Royal Gazette Ltd (RG) from the above author. The RG is the only daily newspaper of Bermuda, see http://www.royalgazette.com/section/?template=6. Its present cost per issue is $1.50. BOL provides numerous web files on Bermuda of the type not covered on the RG's website. The RG is independent of any political party and is the principal (more than 85%) independent and impartial source of all offline and online news about Bermuda. The RG, Bermuda Business Directory and more are owned by Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd (BPHL), see http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/private/people.asp?privcapId=20458943 and http://www.bsx.com/CompanyDisplay.asp?CompanyID=127, of 13 Addendum Lane, Pembroke HM 07, Bermuda. Jonathan Howes is the CEO of BPHL. In July 2014 when the Bermuda Sun bi-weekly newspaper folded after 50 years, BPHL also acquired the Island Press and Bermuda.com websites.
