Happy New Year, readers! And welcome back to Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub – the web’s number one virtual location for soaking in warm, relaxing waters and enjoying my virtual adventures.
What a year 2019 has been. I’ve been to Comic Cons; written album reviews for Ever Metal; indulged in another traditional Halloween Horror Fest – and finally managed to get to a few gigs. Food and drinks reviews, as well as toy and tat blogs, have also made a comeback.
But what have been the most popular and widely read blogs in the last year? Let’s rewind the clocks and take a look, with a good ol’ countdown from ten to the number one spot…
10. Little Shop of Halloween Horror Fests
At last! Some Halloween Horror Fest love, with my final set of reviews breaking into the Top 10. A first for my horror movie reviews, as far as I remember. A triple bill of The Wolf Man, Little Shop of Horrors and Lust for a Vampire.
9. New Deck 2019 – Death Skateboards Richie Jackson
All about my latest skate set-up, including sexy pictures of a very fine skateboard.
8. Ewok Village Playset
My vintage Star Wars Ewok Village playset made a welcome appearance. I must feature some more of my collection in the future.
7. That Beer Place
Very happy to see such a cool local beer emporium prove so popular. Well done, That Beer Place!
6. Liverpool Comic Con 2019 – Part 1
A great day out, and the blog didn’t fare too badly at all. No sign of Part 2 in the countdown, though…
5. Death by Tacos, Chester
The number one food place in Chester makes a justified appearance in the Top 5 most popular blogs. Awesome food and service.
4. Tat Trek Update #8: Jo Guest Strip Pen
Miracle of miracles – an item from my Tat collection rockets into the most popular blogs for the first time ever! Perhaps the saucy nature of the Jo Guest strip pen is to blame…
3. Wales Comic Con 2019
Always a great Comic Con, with fantastic guests and most importantly – as evidenced by this blog – amazing cosplay.
2. MCM Comic Con Birmingham 2019 – Part 1
The first part of my visit to the NEC for Comic Con made it to the number two spot. Few words but plenty of brilliant cosplay.
And now – announcing the Most Read Blog of 2019 at Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub. What could it be? Why it’s…
1. MCM Comic Con Birmingham 2019 – Part 2
Only a couple of views more than Part 1, but Part 2 takes the crown for the most popular blog this year!
It’s great to see a variety of different topics be successful this year. Comic conventions, food and skateboards always fare well, but I’m very happy to see Star Wars toys and a bit of tat break through for the first time.I’ll endeavour to deliver more in 2020 – who knows what we’ll see?
My thanks to all my readers over the last year – I appreciate every single view, like and comment. I wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2020.
