A big thank-you to readers from 165 countries

I came close this year to killing my blog and I’m glad I changed my mind. It is thanks to readers like you, who have visited Under the Banyan from 165 countries in 2012 (see map).


Writers can’t stop writing. That’s a simple fact. But when we know that someone — even just a single distant stranger — will read our words and perhaps devote a thought to them, we write harder and better, with more energy and passion.

So, I want to say a big thank-you to everyone who has visited Under the Banyan and has read or commented on my posts here.

I would also like to know some more about you, so please leave a comment here and tell me who you are, where you live, what you do and what you would like to see at Under the Banyan in the future.

I wish you a happy and peaceful 2013

  1. I just found your blog. It looks interesting – thanks. To answer your request for information, I’m Mick McCarthy from The University of Melbourne. I’m interested in biodiversity generally, and science that can help its management in particular. My site is mickresearch.wordpress.com, and my group’s site is qaeco.com. I’ve got a soft spot for Jersey, having spent a week there a few years ago. Hougue Bie was a highlight (layers of history), so I also liked your post about the Ville-ès-Nouaux.

  2. Hi Mike,

    Bikash from India, I love reading your blogpost (well your hardwork in putting well-researched interesting articles).

    I am a student, I love environmental science and also a passionate guitarist.

    @Under The Banyan, I would love to read articles that are, as usual, found nowhere, they are from your experience in the field.

    Best Wishes….
    and also “Happy New Year” Mike….
