You may have noticed that scuba diving is almost all I post about anymore. Most of you aren't divers, and a lot of what I write about diving is the kind of thing I'd like to share with others. But I don't want to direct just anyone to a private LJ I've been keeping for years. So I have decided it is finally time to start my own blog, which for now is titled "Stories from an Urban Mermaid." I plan to make my dive-related posts there, including aquarium stuff. I may cross-post sometimes, but basically this LJ will be for personal stuff and the blog will be for anything I want to talk about that is related to scuba diving, oceans, sea life, or aquariums. I'll also be adding old posts and backdating them, so it's not totally empty to start with. I hope you'll visit!
