The final count is in at the Critters Poll and this blog finished in second place in the Review Site category. The poll this year contained several mega sites and Kevin's Corner in a far smaller field of review sites than in years past. While we do not review what the first place finisher does--paranormal books and other paranormal content-- this blog is the clear number one favorite for mysteries, crime fiction, and such.
The poll results also marks the same second place finish as last year. Considering what has gone on this past year and the struggle it has been for me to keep this blog going, finishing second, even in a far smaller field, still feels like a major accomplishment. I could not have kept the blog going without the help of many other people who provided not only content, but support on days that were often very dark.
On behalf of regular contributors Barry Ergang, Aubrey Nye Hamilton, Kaye George, Earl Staggs, and numerous guests in the past year, as well as yours truly, we thank you for your support.
