In June of this year, we added the blog section to nonsportupdate.com. Since then, we’ve posted over 150 stories including interviews, show reports, entertainment news and of course, lots of trading card news. We’ve had posts from many members of the magazine staff (Alan Biegel, Roxanne Toser, Dave Thompson, Ryan Cracknell, Scott Thomas, and myself) as well as friends of Non-Sport Update including Bob Hulsart, Laura Inglis, Jeri Metz, Dave Brown, and Paul Bines.
We thought now was a good time to see what the top blog posts of the year were, based on site traffic. Here they are:
