Broad Street Hockey has been around for just two months now, but in that short time period, we're quickly becoming a pretty recognizable face in the hockey blogosphere. Of course, a lot of the credit has to go to the team here at SBN - James Mirtle, all 29 (soon to be 31!) hockey bloggers, the tech team, Jim Bankoff, the list goes on. They've done an unbelievable job in getting us affiliated with Yahoo! and SI.com, access to AP photos, and a handful of other ridiculous toys.
Most of all though, (I know this sounds cliche, bear with me) the credit belongs to you guys. The people that read this blog everyday are what make this place tick. There have been days where I simply don't have the time to make a post or my internet craps out, but there's always chatter going on in the FanPosts or somewhere else on the site. And I know not everybody who comes here are people that comment. You folks are just as important around here as those who contribute vocally (or whatever you want to call typing).
Joe at Mile High Hockey, SBN's Colorado blog, has compiled statistics over the last two months from every SBN hockey site. We're number 12 out of the 27 sites with public data, thanks to 19,027 of you visiting this site in March. Considering the blogs ahead of us have, in one form or another, been entrenched in the blogosphere much longer than we have, that number is something to take pride in. And it will continue to grow.
As the playoffs begin, let's make April (and May and June) the best month in Broad Street Hockey history. Oh, and a Stanley Cup or something would be fun too I guess...
