This Shipwreck weblog has been in operation for only six months. During this period of time, we have dove and explored shipwrecks from around the world including famous ocean liners, military ships, merchant vessels and other places of nautical interest. Our readership during this period of time has expanded from about a thousand visits per month to almost seven thousand per month. This amazing burst in readership could not happen without your support. I would like to personally thank all the subscribers using RSS that actively access our articles as they are released. If you would like to receive this feature, it is very easy using the syndicate link on the bottom left-hand portion of our blog.
We have been very proud of the fact that we not just report the latest diving news, but we actually CREATE the news via our various dive projects and expeditions. Our scientific research expeditions to the Titanic, historic treasure-ladened vessels and discovery of military wrecks have been leading front-page news throughout the world. Additionally, our weblog has had input from several leading global shipwreck explorers and researchers that have contributed articles about their novel projects and expeditions. Many of these explorers and researchers have been subscribers of our blog from its inaugural postings. Using the latest in digital computer communications, we have reported live webcasting from remote sites, utilized the satellite for blog submission while in the middle of the ocean and incorporated our copyrighted video, films and photography to our viewers while out on the dive. We have made a huge investment of our resources in providing the public access to the very latest nautical information.
As we move forward over the next year, we would like to continue to incorporate the latest multimedia advancements in web technology to get you even closer to our diving expeditions. Please visit our corporate website at www.nauticalresearch.com for the latest news about our projects and expeditions. In the fall season, we will be taking advantage of the corporate website to provide an educational component that people can access to gain information about certain significant wrecks. It is envisioned that our intensive research will be unveiled on the corporate site and would include our latest work, videos and photographs. We have registered new domain names and other websites for conveying our latest information. Collectively, this web ring of underwater resources will be tied together through the corporate backbone.
Success breeds success - and based on the tremendous viewership numbers and wonderful emails that we have received, it is obvious that we are doing some very good things!
