Each New Year I take a look back at my blog stats for the year that has just ended. It’s always interesting and revealing,. although it’s maybe not always that clear why!
So, this is the report for 2016.
Here is the top 20, in order of popularity.
By far the most read post this year was — This is a subject I haven’t revisited for a few years now but it was way out in front in terms of popularity. Something is definitely going on here, I can tell this from the occasional emails that there is still a real debate raging and in many ways I feel sad that it still is.
Another post with thousands of hits last year. It looks as if the Challenge still holds a fascination for many walkers, which suggests the event still has a lively future in front of it.
No surprise here as this site has always championed both the French and the Spanish Pyrenees.
Again no surprises here.
Long term reviews of Mountain Laurel gear are always popular which is an indication of not only the interest in these products but their effectiveness.
How to explore the Pyrenees for the first time.
Does what it says on the tin
My current two person shelter. A great piece of kit.
With over 1,000 direct reads this newcomer this year, Stormin’ Norman should be very proud — hope he’s had a few orders as a result.
These shelters are consistently popular
That shelter again.
For some reason this stove has never really captured the imagination of magazines and many blogs — but it remains, year on year, one of the pieces of kit that readers seem most interested in. This is the titanium version. A great stove and real fun to use, especially in the summer.
My current walking shoes.
I am not alone!
I’d forgotten about this one.
Another great piece of kit.
The last/old new forum (replaced back on this blog for 2017)
Good to see Colin Ibbotson’s amazing shelter hitting the top 20
When you need a big hit of heat from an alcohol stove, there is nothing better.
Now discontinued this was a really good tent — there’s still a lot of interest in Terra Nova tents.
