Waving goodbye to the festivities
Now that our seasonal countdown has ended, Engineering at Sea would like to thank everyone that took part. The campaign had many highlights, such as the St. Nicholas Day tweet, and our followers particularly enjoyed the Please Explore Responsibly post. Entering 2018, we are ready to get going with a brand-new series of articles for you to look forward to.
The year in review
Before moving forward into the new year, we would like to reflect on some of the highlights from 2017. The Engineering at Sea hub posted over 50 articles last year, covering a range of topics such as greener propulsion methods, digital pirates, and automated lubrication for improved bearing performance. Engineering at Sea also had its first birthday in 2017, which our readers helped celebrate – it was great to see your pictures!
We enjoy being part of the international maritime community and sincerely thank you for supporting us. Last year alone, we received 39,500 visits to the hub and the number of our returning readers increased to over 10,000 – we now have visitors in over 150 different countries. As a marine engineering blog, we are in a niche market and so we are overwhelmed by these figures. We could not have asked for more!
