The Preditors and Editors Official Poll Results are out and this blog finished FOURTH this year. Once again it was beat by slick team review sites that primarily focus on romance and fantasy and are heavy into interviews/giveaways. Not only does this mean the blog moved up one spot, it means the blog is still number one for those readers that are interested in mystery and all of its many flavors.
While I am very glad about the ranking, I am most gratified by the comments regarding the blog. As a few folks are aware, with everything here I have been giving serious thought to shutting down the blog. The comments make me think that the reviews, guest posts, and other things on the blog do matter to the book community at large.
