  • This blog came out of one the academic writing workshops I ran for librarians. My idea was that people would share ideas, information on publication and presentation opportunities and experiences of writing. Participants in workshops were invited, via the blog to be authors on the blog. That didn’t really take off. So I had a rethink and decided to change the focus.
  • Referral traffic – calls for papers may bring people to a US site and then return to the blog from that siteFor some smaller libraries/organisations their hosting is with USA/North American companies and this could explain why it looks like the traffic is coming from there when in fact it is coming from Ireland. settings. Often with Google products they default to USA settings. So your blog might be set as a USA account. This info should be in the tab/link account settings
