Dear readers, welcome to my last blog for the year. I hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s stories. Thanks for reading this year’s blogs and for following the links to other bloggers. Blogging has introduced me to a network of enthusiastic ecologists, writers, photographers and artists, all sharing their support for the environment and love of nature.
Thanks too if if you’ve sent in a comment or shared one of my posts on Facebook, Twitter or other social media. The stories on old paddock trees, vanishing Banksias, great ecology blogs, and many more, reached a much bigger audience than I dreamed of thanks to your links and shares.
What’s in store for 2014? Unfortunately, I never know what I’ll write after the current post (as you’ve probably guessed by now), so I’d love to hear about the types of stories that you would like to see more of in 2014. You can guide the future of the blog by posting a short comment below, to share your festive thoughts on:
- What did you most enjoy (or dislike) about the blog this year?
- What would you like to see more (or less) of in the future?
- If you could suggest one thing that you’d hate to see happen to the site in the future, what would it be?
The more ideas you submit, the more varied and entertaining next year’s posts will be. To provide some guidance, I’ve listed below a selection of this year’s feedback from my ‘faceless readers’. The WordPress blogging software deletes hundreds of spam comments every week, but a few spam messages escape the automated cull. If these weren’t from shady re-financing sites and dodgy commerce and porn sites, I’d be overwhelmed by such flattering praise and uniquely phrased opinions.
If you share your thoughts in the comments box below, please refrain from writing anything as syrupy as this …
Wonderful items from you, man. I’ve take note your stuff prior to and you’re simply extremely wonderful.
Or as terse and disgruntled as this…

I can’t help but be perplexed by a comment like this…
Absolutely composed written content, regards for selective information.
But after years of marking student assignments, I’ll make perfect sense of informed commentary like this…
So if you are like insurance agent commission most people, you’re not getting this opportunity.
