According to the Herald Scotland, LinkedIn now boasts 15 million UK users including five British mermaids. All professionals, including mermaids, need to stay connected.
"LinkedIn is the world's largest online professional network with more than 277 million members globally."
It's a big ocean out there. Here is the article.
Meet Christie, otherwise known as Mermaid Kyrin, a performer at the Tampa, Florida Renaissance Faire. In an article by friend Jen Yates, we are treated to a wealth of photos and a short Flash video of Mermaid Kyrin's unveiling at the faire.
"To avoid the inevitable barrage of questions, the crowd is informed that mermaids only communicate in little trills and squeaks, kind of like a dolphin, which is pretty stinking adorable."

Hold the (Shell)Phone, Sailor Twain is now available in paperback! Sailor Twain, or The Mermaid in the Hudson, is a wonderful graphic novel by Mark Siegel. Read this excellent review at Beth Fish Reads.
"I was quickly pulled into the world of Sailor Twain, which is set up as a frame story and told in retrospect. The characters' changing behavior and the clues (found on the ship and on land and in newspaper articles, books, and letters) are teasing and kept me guessing."
If you missed my earlier blog post on Sailor Twain, you can find it in this October 2012 article.

Jono and Ollie of Toasted TV recently paid a visit to the set of Mako Mermaids (locally known as Mako, Island of Secrets). The guys certainly raced through this two-minute video. What did we learn?
