Yesterday, we hit a new milestone. 50,000 views! Heartfelt thanks to everyone who has read the blog, and special thanks to those who have shared and commented on blog posts.
Shall we delve into some stats? Go on, then.
By a country mile, the most popular post on this blog is How I use Scrivener for academic writing (18,000 views). Followed by, How I use Excel to manage my literature review. And then, Scrivener and Endnote: a simple guide (both at 10,000 views).
The majority of visitors are from the United States, followed by the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Brazil, India, Spain, and South Korea. But today, we’ve already had visitors from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Guam, Portugal, and Norway. Wherever you are in the world, welcome!
And, randomly, the most popular day and time to view this blog appears to be Thursday, at 2pm…
So, what next?
It’s been three months since my last post. Much has changed. My application for promotion to Associate Professor was accepted. I handed in the first chapter of my PhD. My article exploring the online trolling of autoethnographers was published. I am teaching a new group of students, and supervising new legal cases. And outside of work, I spend the majority of my free time organising my forthcoming wedding.
This blog remains a major source of pride and happiness. And I have spent some time considering where we go from here. Clearly, academic writing will continue to be a central part of the blog’s content. I was asked a little while ago how I integrate supervisor comments into the Scrivener draft of my thesis – blog post on this coming soon! But I’ll also be introducing a new monthly feature, specifically aimed at those interested in clinical legal education. Watch this space! And thanks again.
