best-of-robert-e-howard-grim-lands2Summer months are for sports, gardening, and getting together in the back yard with close friends. But apparently nobody told you people, because you spent the entire month on the computer, reading Black Gate blog posts.

July 2012 was one of the best months we’ve ever had, with solid traffic growth and nearly 70 new articles from writers such as Howard Andrew Jones, Joe Bonadonna, Patty Templeton, Patrice Sarath, D.B. Jackson, and many others. Here are the Top 30 most popular articles and links for the month.

This is no surprise. I probably check the blog close to 10 times a day. Mostly because I have an iPod touch which allows me to check it pretty much anywhere.

I just really enjoy he articles. I read almost all of the ones that are posted.

On top of that I would say 80% of my reading purchases are blackgate inspired, so i always let my wife know who s to blame when a new boom enters the house


I check every few days. Anything by John O’Neill, Howard Andrew Jones or John C. Hocking is immediately read and enjoyed.
