The Week in Botany
The response to the audio files on Botany One has been surprising since their launch. I didn’t expect a lot of interest, but an unexpected number of people are choosing to listen to blog posts instead of reading them. In response, I’ve made the audio files available through Spotify and other sources in addition to the website.
The size of the response is all the more surprising as it’s been a quiet week for the people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. Usually, there’s a lot shared that doesn’t make the list, but I think people taking a break for the end of summer in the northern hemisphere has reduced activity. If I’m right, there should be a pick-up in social media activity in September.
There will be a newsletter next week, but it might be shorter than usual as I’ll be taking a brief break too, to see family. But there should be something with you this time next Monday. Until then, take care.
