Today marks the 4th year Cruise Law has been on Twitter. Check out our page here. Over 10,000 tweets and over 10,000 followers later, it has been a fun four years. Tweeting is just micro-blogging in 140 characters and led me to create this blog Cruise Law News.
If you are not on Twitter you should be. It has led me to meet literally thousands of lawyers, travel agents, cruise industry people, journalists, travelers and crew members around the world. Lots of news about the cruise industry breaks on Twitter before the mainstream media knows what's going on.
Speaking of social media, we have been busy in the world of cruise law news this year. The Carnival Triumph fire and the "ensuing cruise from hell" were the latest cruise fiascos which focused the world on the unregulated foreign-flagged cruise industry.
Our firm and this blog were featured in over fifty television, cable news, & radio shows and internet, magazine and newspaper articles. Take a look here at a listing of some here of the programs and articles.
Cruise Law News (CLN), now over 3 years old, remains a top 10 law blog in terms of popularity. It is currently ranked #9 per the Alexa popularity rankings. The 8 law blogs ahead of us consist of 6 blogs which are commercial sites or are run by law professors. There's only one other law blog operated by a full time lawyer (China Law Blog) ahead of us. So we are the #2 law blog in the U.S. and Canada written by a full time lawyer.
Last month in the 28 days of February, readers visited some 415,960 pages of this blog. If we keep this pace up, we are approaching 5,000,000 page views a year!
Our Facebook page is booming, with over 45,000 likes. It is by far the most popular page by a law firm on Facebook.
