New blog on the block

The most insteresting ocean blog to come along in a while is just starting over at Oceans 4Ever. Why so interesting? Because it's the creation of 9 year old Alexa (right). She's a force, and I predict she'll do well.

Working together with her mom Cindy, who is a national magazine journalist and is "pretty good at taking direction from her daughter," they've already won me over.

They have a unique approach, exemplified by their contests and giveaways. They're starting with this plush beluga whale, which you can have a chance to win just by entering your very own email subscription to Oceans 4Ever. They'll have contests every Monday.

I don't know how, but they persuaded me to contribute to a new feature of theirs set to debut very soon. Keep checking their site if you want to find out what disclosures they've wrung out of me.

It warms the cockles of my heart to see one so young already knowing so much and caring so much about the oceans.

Thank you for recognizing Alexa and for understanding where the blog is coming from. Hoping to work with all of your wonderful ocean community members to help raise awareness/consciousness of young people on up. It is so good for Alexa to see that her passion does count and it does have "legs," oops, we mean fins.
