Website Statistics from 2013
Being a bit of a nerd, I find following my website ‘statistics’ rather fascinating. It tells me which articles were interesting, and which were rubbish. The process of writing and laying out ideas, realising they don’t make sense, and revising them is surprisingly helpful.
With most of these statistics, I have nothing to compare them to aside from past few years of running my blog. All I can see in amongst the huge peaks and deep troughs is a slow and fairly steady increase in readership, which really means a great deal to me.
Just over half of my visits were from the UK. Many of the others were English speaking countries which is probably unsurprising. Interestingly though, I seem to get a lot of visitors from India, a country I would love to visit!
James is a highly acclaimed public speaker, delivering keynotes, lectures and debates to a wide range of audiences including students, the public, conservation practioners and scientists. Rather than further polarizing already divisive conservation topics, James aims to explain the complexity and nuance of conservation. What we choose to do over the next five decades, will profoundly influence the diversity of life on eath for the next 5 million years. It’s never been a more important, or more exciting time to be a conservationist.
