It’s that time of year again. At the start of each year, I like to dip into our site stats and run down the most-read posts. It’s a fun way of reviewing the past year, getting some sense of what garnered the most attention.
And the last year was a doozy for everyone. Throughout the pandemic, our volunteer team of editors produced outstanding work on what continues to be the largest publishing platform for Canadian environmental history. In many ways, 2020 was our biggest year yet. This included blog posts, podcasts, book reviews, videos, and peer-reviewed scholarship. Here’s NiCHE in 2020 by the numbers:
- 208 blog posts
- 8 book reviews
- 1 peer-reviewed article
- 4 Nature’s Past podcast episodes
- 11 NiCHE Conversations video interviews
- 2 livestream conference panels
- 256,902 words
- 140 comments
We published more blog articles than we ever have before with a whopping 208 individual posts clocking at over 250,000 words. What were the most-read of those many many posts?
I want to send out a huge thanks to all of our contributors from 2020. It was a tough year and we are headed into another difficult one for 2021. You shared your knowledge and expertise on issues that showed the continuing relevance and urgency of the study of the intersections of nature and history. Thank you.
