Well firstly Happy New Year To You All!
I do hope that 2016 brings you all good health and fortune, however I must say 2015 has been from my own personal view my best for many years. Its been the best for Titanic And her Sisters, with so much support from across the globe! and many kind words that does keep us doing what are doing day in day out. We held nine events this year with our presentations/talks in Grey Lodge Settlement, Sheltered Housing Complex and Dundee & Angus College and they have all be a success. Over 100 people attended the events that`s all them combined.
So 2016 does look like it will be a very exciting year indeed, however a very busy one too. A new logo is in the works and plans for events to be held will be soon is discussion for the next few months across the Dundee region. We do have some outstanding plans for Titanic And her Sisters itself however at this very moment in time nothing is secure about this plan, but when it does you will hear about it!
We will also I hope be expanding across the net into new social media sites and this website in my eyes needs a major overhaul. A new look and layout along with new information, with a few competitions coming too! so free giveaways!
Thank you for taking time to read my blog, I`m not a fan of them but its a new year so I should maybe make an effort right?
Anyway take care everyone!
We asked our fans within the Facebook community about their own opinions of the "Titanic II" on October 18th 2015 and it was a huge engagement of different opinions and views on this project. A debate within minutes kicked off on our Facebook page and massively got popular across the ocean liner community where it went on for days later.
Now the poll which is on "The HUB" section has dramatically changed since the big debate nearly two weeks ago. With most of Europe against the Titanic II where America & Canada supports...
We are proud to announce that our website will receive a big revamp, but why? well we want to make our site the best location for finding out information and learning about the Titanic And Her Sisters so we hope this big revamp will help us do that even further than before.
We want to say a huge big thanks to you all for supporting us, without your support and engagement on the site along with Facebook & Twitter we would simply not exist.
Our team will now be gathering all survey results that you filled in and from that we will see what you would like see more and what we can improve on.
We have some major sections coming to the site over the next few months that will now be put into this revamp, in the next few weeks we will reveal whats coming & changing. We hope to release this revamp by April 2015.
If you have any other ideas or thoughts then simply comment below, or contact us or contact us on Facebook, Twitter, this will be greatly appreciated!!

Well the second "Titanic And Her Sisters Presentation" was amazing, so I just want to say a big thank you to all the 10 students who invited me into their class to give them a presentation, in the special programs department of D&A College, great engagement with the presentation and amazing feedback!
Well today the opinion on whether Titanic II will be built has not been clearer, support for her to become reality has dropped from 59.5% to 52.8% as people who think not went from 40.5% to 47.2%.
Our official website since October 16th 2014 has managed to surpass 10,800+ visits!!, this is great news across the whole team here at Titanic And Her Sisters. So we will now press on and create new material and pages, thank you all so much!!
Well its been a full month since we launched our new official website, and we are hoping you are all liking it as much as we are. Since we launched On October 16th 2014 we have had in total 6,184 visitors on this site, with a huge engagement in `Titanic II` & colorized pictures of the sisters.
Tomorrow we will be announcing some new things that will be coming to the website before 2015, keep an eye out on our Facebook page and this blog to get the news!
Over the last few days, our team have been trying to think up new ideas to add to the site. With one of them was brightening the home-page of the site as it looked well dull-ish. So as you may all have noticed the home page has been updated, its more easier to use and gives you much more direct links to information, and latest updates! across the site.
GIVE US YOUR FEEDBACK BELOW! ON WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEW UPDATE OF OUR HOMEPAGE!
We opened a simple poll on October 20th 2014, and found out after the 25 people who voted it was near 50/50. The poll simply asked `` Do You Think Titanic II Will Be Built `` with a simply YES or NO where the actual result at the current moment is strangely mixed with 1 vote making an actual difference.
With 48% it was a YES that Titanic II would be built however 52% said no the Titanic would not be built, as of now the poll is still live however this poll does not prove anything at all, as she could be built its not impossible or is it ??
Now an old photograph album is going on display at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra, County Down.It contains 116 prints and belonged to John W Kempster who was a director at Harland & Wolff, the Belfast shipyard that built the famous liner.
There are 13 pictures from the launch of the Titanic from Belfast, including Lord Pirrie returning from his inspection of the hydraulic rams, and the famous liner going down the slipway and being chased by an excited crowd.
