As 2020 comes to a close, we wanted to share some quick stats on the year that has gone by, as we have in 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014. This year is notably different as Covid stopped a lot of events from happening.
Articles and events
This year we wrote more articles, but Covid caused a big drop in events.
We also sent out 49 newsletters. If you know people who might be interested in receiving the newsletter, why not tell them to subscribe?

We have not been the best twitter user again this year, but all events and articles are posted, so why not follow us?
We also have a Facebook page. Why not follow us?
These are down a bit from last year, perhaps because there were fewer of Martyn Day’s articles:
|Pages per session||1.34||1.36||1.42||1.62||1.73|
How people accessed the site
One trend we have been watching is how many people are now using the site on phones and tablets. This is why we continue making the site work better on smaller screens. This year’s mobile usage is still over half of all sessions, however, Desktop users grew as more people were at home because of Covid.
|Device||Sessions||Change from 2018|
