2013: The Year in Review at PterosaurHeresies

Thank you for making this a memorable year.

WordPress is kind enough to supply year end stats. Here they are:

Most popular post this year: “Eosinopteryx Feathers, but no Flapping.”

These are the posts that got the most views in 2013.

Visitors from 162 countries. Most came from The United States. Germany & The United Kingdom were not far behind.

Not sure what makes a particular post popular. Heck, it could be the weather. But if there’s anything you want me to write about, please, let me know.

There are times when I’m stacked up with two weeks of posts ready to upload. Now is not one of those times as I’m busy working on a paper or two. And, of course, the incoming news stream seems to be drying up as of late.

I’m encouraged by the increasing use of traced photographs in academic publications. This ensures 1:1 accuracy. Color overlays help readers see the extent of bones much better than unordered areas identified by arrows. I’m still hopeful that paleontologists will expand the gamut of their inclusion sets. Maybe we’ll start seeing that in 2014.

I’m often plagued by the thought that I’m about to run out of topics. As I near 1000 blog posts, that reality is no doubt coming closer. Inspiration drives this blog, but it’s a fickle emotion, here today, gone tomorrow.

Some highlights from 2013 include:













It’s been a great year. Thank you for your comments, especially those that improve the data that builds this blog.

Happy 2014!

  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR, David!!! Yes, more and more people are using colored tracings… maybe you will be thanking your attackers for bringing the technique to prominence and “highlighting” your use of it.
