Three Years of a New Nature Blog

wishing tree

wishing tree and well, Burren.

Today I’m celebrating three years of writing this blog. It’s become quite an important part of my life, and I’m hoping to continue it for the foreseeable future.

I will also be writing blogs on People Need Nature‘s website, and at the moment am attempting to juggle my own twitter feed, the PNN twitter feed; and now facebook for PNN too.

This is becoming quite time consuming!

At some point something is going to have to give. I am hoping to raise enough funds to pay for a part- time social media person to take on the People Need Nature social media work.

If anyone has any bright ideas about how to fund that, please let me know.

The most popular post continues to be The strange case of Dr Earth and the UKIP environmental policies, which has been at the top of the table since September 2014. Hard on its heels now is The Flood, the Environment Agency and the Grouse Moor,  and I expect this one to make it to the top spot sometime this year. In third place (way behind the first two) is The Countryside Alliance, its charitable foundation and the Tory party.

Its pretty clear to me from these top stories, that what my readership wants is investigations into the murky area where politics and environmental issues meet. While I enjoy writing these pieces, they do take up a lot of time, which is being squeezed, as People Need Nature gets going. Expect to see more shorter pieces (have I said that before?) in the future.

Thanks to everyone for reading, and especially those who leave comments.

    Research and writing so much and so regularly take so much commitment! I really enjoy reading your pieces, it helps that you write so well. Onward and upward, here’s to the next three years.

    It’s a great blog, I love it and I’d consider donating.

    You needn’t feel obliged to post if you haven’t got inspiration or time, I know bloggers have lives and day jobs and can’t be blogging 24/7, so we’ll all be around for any posts you make.
