The Cobbler’s Children Have No Shoes The Writer No BlogsAs a writer, This point came home to me as I visited different exhibitors at the DEMA show last week. DEMA is the Dive Equipment Manufacturers Association. Each year they have an annual convention and a trade show. It attracts thousands upon thousands of individuals and companies from around the world. It is not a consumer show, but one that is meant to bring together professionals in the industry.

I was there with a media pass and as I talked to different people in the industry I realized that my Scuba Diving Nomad website had not really been updated recently. Clearly a case similar to where the cobbler was so busy making shoes for customers he had no time for his own children’s shoes. I am a writer but my own site is lacking.

What is happening as a Scuba Writer

I currently have an article published twice a week on the leading scuba diving website. My author page on the site will show the items that I have written for them, post number 70 this year is pending publication. My recent article about shore diving in Bonaire was very well received.

In the last month, I have also ghost written a number of articles for the Dive zone website. I also did a few guest post on their behalf on other scuba diving and travel websites. As an example, I wrote an article about diving on the Great Barrier Reef that was on the travel tips website.

I have a couple of new outlets for my writing in the works, which I plan on sharing as soon as they are posted.

At the DEMA show, I was able to talk to a number of people that I would not of been able to with out that event. I am hopeful that some of these new introductions will lead to articles for my readers enjoyment and education.

Well a lot of those "Diving Professionals" you were talking to became pro’s to dive more and they end up working in the shop and diving less :(
