Baby Makos and Blues - Post 1000!

A little over one year ago a friend suggested that I start a blog on shark diving. At the time I said "Another blog? waddaya, new?". Now, a thousand posts later and 15k readers a month, we are Underwater Thrills:Swimming With Sharks

What began as a lark, seriously I had no idea where this was going, has become the accidental industry blog with a rabid following and rightfully so. Until we started talking about our 200 million dollar industry in depth, no one had been talking about our industry in terms of it's international scope and regional conservation efforts. The idea of being interconnected and how media effects us all are standard themes here.

So - here's to 1000 posts, not all were as pithy as I had hoped, and some downright silly. For the most part I think we have hit our mark here at UT. Looking forward to another 1000 posts in the near future because as we have come to discover, there really is a lot to blog about:

That's a whole lot of "Bloviating" mate. Thanks kinda crept up on us.

Ha, you said bloviating.

Congrats from the east coast mate. You have the best shark blog going, next to sharkies!

Believe it or not, the word verification if I want to leave a comment reads: "abuseme"! (:

Anyway, Patric, kudos for the Blog!
It has always been entertaining and often, outright brilliant!

Keep it going amigo!
This is Shark Conservation at its best - and great marketing on top of that!
