1) When all of us here at FAUXRUMORS got together last August and launched this blog we had no expectations. We as a group had become fed up with the rumor mongers as well as simply wanted to write about what we loved most, NHL hockey. As a group we had ample potential sources which we have cultivated/added to in the past 6 months of blogging. We are VERY proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time.
2) Amazingly, this is our 200th post! Some ofcourse have been more memorable than others, but we stand behind, and are proud of each and every one of them. We don't do this for recognition, but an independent web browser/tabulator recently audited our site and found we are in the top 1% of hockey blogs based upon number of hits, and more importantly, UNIQUE hits. Simply put, we have attracted a rather large audience without anything other than word of mouth!
3) Nothing is more gratifying though than to be recognized by one's own peers in the blogging community. In such a short time we have either been mentioned/sited/espouse by/been a contributor or been lauded by many other popular hockey blogs. Among them are Islander Army, http://www.islandersarmy.com/blog/, Jasper's Rink, http://japersrink.blogspot.com, OffWing Opinion, http://www.offwing.com/ Igloo Dreams, http://igloodreams.blogspot.com/ Hockey Rants, http://jesgolbez.blogspot.com Canuck's Hockey Blog, http://canuckshockey.blogspot.com/ Anotherhabsblog, http://anotherhabsblog.blogspot.com Tom Benjamin's NHL weblog, http://www.canuckscorner.com/weblog/nhllog/ James Mirtle, http://mirtle.blogspot.com/ And many more!
4) Additionally, as has been mentioned here in the past, we have been nominated for a blog award in the category of best new hockey blog by The Interactive Media Awards.
None of this could have been possible without all of you! We will continue to strive to bring all of you the latest news, commentary, irreverent humor, and of course the most accurate rumors on the net today. All FREE of CHARGE!
As always, keep it here for the latest!
