Website Feedback


I’ve been running this website for a little over three years now. I started off with a few stories I wanted to share, and and very little idea of how to go about it.

Slowly, I’ve tried to develop it into a resource for aspiring conservation biologists, as well as a blog about my expeditions, fieldwork and conservation projects. I’ve enjoyed watching my readership grow too, and I recently published my stats for 2013.

But things can always be improved. So I’d like my readers to tell me how I can do better.

Please feel free to tell me what you think in the comments. Or if some questions are easier, here’s some things I’m hoping to find out.

1. Is this your first time here, or are you a regular?

2. What works and what doesn’t work? Is my website easy to use, do you get lost or are there too many pages?

3. What sort of articles do you most enjoy: ‘How to’, Photoblogs, Motivation, List and Tips, Citizen Science, Conservation Ideas or anything else?

4. Which posts do you not enjoy, any of the above or anything else?

5. If you could improve one thing about this site, what would it be?

6. Anything else at all that you think might be useful.

Thanks for the feedback, I really do appreciate it!

    Hi James! I think your website is fantastic. I find the layout easy to navigate and it’s all very user friendly. I stumbled upon it earlier this year when searching out information on conservation careers actually as I’m in the midst of studies and trying to find my way in the world. That particular topic was really helpful – unfortunately down here in New Zealand we don’t have all of the magnificent networking opportunities that you might find overseas so still struggling a little bit!

    The only suggestion I would have the site would be on the home page – to have some of your recent posts (or most popular) cycling like you have with the photos at present. Sort of like a sneak peek, “but wait there’s more” scenario. I know that under the photos there are the options under “Explore this site” but it might draw people in more if they could catch a glimpse of a specific subject/post etc.

    Sorry I’m not that helpful but I can’t fault I site I don’t have any problems with!

    Cheers from a fledgling conservationist way down South 🙂
