Happy 5th Birthday, RedNewt!

newt

Five years ago, this blog was born. In 2013, I wrote a grand total of two posts and received 21 visitors – not stellar for promoting conservation and an appreciation of biodiversity. But the number of posts and visitors have grown over the years… this site has now been viewed over 15,000 times! I can’t thank you enough.
Here’s a brief look back at the “top” posts:

  1. First post: “Carapace Cornucopia” (one of my favorite paintings)
  2. Most-viewed post: “Penis Bone – No Joke” … yes, that is the top-performing post. 🙂
  3. Month with highest number of views: September 2015 (2.5k) thanks to Scientific American blog, Symbiartic, and my students’ amazing work
  4. Thanks, Philippines! Visitors from the #2 country of origin like the folktale of the Firefly and the Apes.
  5.  My favorite post: Springtime Symbiosis
  6.  Most enjoyable science paper to read: Signs of Spring
  7. Cutest model (tie): Who’s in My House? and Purring Predators
  8. Smelliest model: Corpse Flower Opens – And Stinks

Thanks for visiting, and for all the encouragement and positive comments!
