The Holidays!

Well, it’s that time of year again. Snow is on the ground, the vis is great and the seas are rough. It’s also time for a short announcement and update on what’s going on at Cold Water Diver! For starters, November saw us break 5000 views! The recent average has been 400 or so views per month, a number I’d like to keep, if not expand! While there haven’t been a lot of photo updates lately, article shave continued to come out on a regular basis and Cold Water Diver has expanded into the realms of social media.

That’s right, social media. It’s been quiet start so far, but Cold Water Diver now has open public pages on both Facebook and Google+. In addition to posting links to new and previous articles from the blog site, regular links to commercial, scientific and recreational diving news are being posted, as well as marine biology links. If it’s interesting and diving or conservation related, it may end up posted! That said, Like us on Facebook or add us to your circles in Google+, there’ll always be something interesting up!

Now for the shameless holiday plug! Ocean Tides has been renamed Cold Water Diver on Zazzle, to bring it fully under the Cold Water Diver name and avoid confusion. We also have over 400 items for sale! Covers for popular smart phones, speakers, shirts, stickers, a calendar, mugs, mouse pads and more! Everything there has been made using photos I’ve taken and royalty free clip art. So if you’re looking for something for the diver in your life (or marine biologist, underwater enthusiast etc…) please check out our shop and help support Cold Water Diver into the new year!

It’s been a great year, and I’ve got a couple of great posts coming up to finish it off and kick off the next year with a bang! The next post will be late, probably monday next week. Until then, Good Luck and Good Diving!
