This week marks a year since I began the OceanDoctor blog. I’ve spent the time experimenting with many new and evolving forms of communication — blogging, Podcasts, Twitter, etc. — trying to find better ways to share my watery experiences, and the response has been wonderful and inspiring. I’m hoping to do much more in the year ahead and have decided to move my blog to this, a self-hosted platform at OceanDoctor.org, which provides more flexibility to experiment with new, leading edge tools and better integrates with the 1planet1ocean site, recently relaunched, too. (And yes, it’s an opportunity to nourish my inner nerd.)
A few technical notes:
- The posts on my original blog (hosted on Vox) will remain intact, but all new posts will only appear here. Note that I’ve included the first paragraph or so of all previous OceanDoctor posts on this site. For the full post you’ll find links back to the old site.
- If you subscribed to the news feed of the old site, chances are your feed will automatically be transferred to the new feed. However, to be safe, I recommend that you re-subscribe. If you haven’t subscribed yet, just look for the orange “News Feed” button at the upper right of this page.
- On the Vox site it was necessary to register before posting a comment. Here you have the option of registering or not — I’ll leave it up to you, but I do hope you’ll feel free to share your feedback, thoughts and experiences.
I want to take this opportunity to thank so many of you for your ongoing encouragement, advice and participation, and I look forward to another year of adventure, discovery, and watery fun.
