Happy Anniversary Tiny Science!
Tiny Science has been up for one year today! Yay!
In the last year, I’ve written 107 posts, which have gotten over 9,000 hits — an average of 25 hits per day — and 173 non-spam comments, mainly on the Friday Whatsit posts.
Although I love all my articles equally, the most popular post with the readers is by far the one on the environmental impact of the Eyjafallajokull volcano in Iceland, with 1,336 hits as of today. The next most visited posts are: the post with links to the full text of the health care reform bill(s), the April Fool’s Day Lion Finch re-post, Pale Blue Dot, and then three of my posts on the science of earthquakes (Haiti, earthquake frequency and Chile/Japan).
Friday Whatsit posts are becoming more popular, with more guesses each time (and several good guessers out there). Friday Whatsit will be back in the New Year, with pictures of more exciting tiny stuff.
I also want to start a new book review feature for 2011. I have a couple of books ready to review already, but if anyone has a good science-for-laypeople book to recommend, you can write about it in the comments section and I will try to check it out.
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
