Happy New Year, everybody! I’d like to wish all the visitors to Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub the very best of times in 2019. And thank you for sticking with me, popping along to dip your toes in the warm water and supporting this valiant endeavour.
Last year saw tremendous ups and downs for us all. But throughout it all, the rock’n’roll world of the Virtual Hot Tub persevered, thanks to you!
Join me now, as I take a look at the Top 10 most read blog posts from 2018:
A classic late 80’s skateboard created a warm nostalgic buzz, becoming one of the most successful posts of the year.
In June I went to see rock’n’roll supergroup Hollywood Vampires in Manchester – the live review proved very popular.
Another live gig – this time for underground metal bands playing near to home – scored just slightly higher than Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp. Go figure.
Only published in early December 2018, the second part of my NEC Comic Con write up has performed very well.
The sheer volume of pics from this years Sci Fi Weekender demanded a third post, which featured more cosplay antics to finish things off nicely.
Another live review, this time several bands headlined by The Crippens at the Tiv, has done really well for views – which is great to see.
The first part of our trip to Birmingham was an unsurprising success, chock full of my mediocre photos as it was.
This post from early December’s Comic Con in Wrexham did really well thanks to a loyal WCC fanbase and some great cosplay.
The second part of my SFW round up did very well, combining an over view of the event with loads of pics. Of course, it was the cosplay pics people were interested in, though!
However the first part of my SFW campaign review was the most read blog post at the Hot Tub for 2018 – performing amazingly.
A few surprises there – nice to see the gig reviews being well received. However the triumph of the Comic Cons was pretty much a no-brainer!
Thanks once again to all of my readers – you make Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub the success it is. Here’s a toast to more fun and games in 2019!
