Close of 2007

2007…what to say? A year that saw a lot of changes. First DSN moved to the big time here at Sb. Our traffic and regular visitors increased. At the old DSN, we hit 100,000 hits in nearly two years of blogging. For 2007, we reached nearly 320,000 hits! Lots of great posts, new discoveries, novel research, and…well deep-sea news. In the next week or so I will post the Best of 2007 determined by a crack, i.e. a bunch of suckers we got for free, team of experts. What will happen next year. DSN is going to be bigger, better, and badder. Don’t worry we will still be the #1 action site ever! Expect more theme weeks and craziness centered on all deep-sea happenin’s. Expect some major change ups too but you got to wait for that!
