Halos Heaven’s 2018 stats show a continued commitment to online Angels dominance

In case you had any doubt, 2018 was another year of Halos Heaven dominating the Angels blogging game. We had some ups and downs — especially on when it came to watching actual games, but through it all — it’s all of you that helped make this site special again in 2018. It’s all about the community.

We already posted some top article and now it’s time to share some stats about you all: the heart and soul of this site. Sadly, those stats are limited but there are a few fun ones to share with you.

These stats relate to those of you who actually post. I wish we could see stats of all the fans who just read the site and never post because you all are awesome, too. Although we’d love it you participated (we won’t bite much!), you are certainly welcome to just sit back and read the awesome content as well.

It’s time to give a little pat on the back to some of our most prolific and undaunted commentariat.

It goes without saying that this list mirrors to the top commenters to some extent. You are bound to get a lot of recs on your comments if you post a lot of comments. Some of you, however, are all about that quality and have more recs than actual comments. Nice work! This list below ranks all commenters who had at least 1,000 recs on their posts.

The top comment on the site all year received 38 recs. No, it wasn’t some sarcastic post about the team, as one might have expected. It also wasn’t about Shohei Ohtani. It was a great reminder that even when our team sucks, we still get to watch the greatest player in the game. The greatest player of our generation. This comment was posted in a links thread back on May 7th by angelsown3417.

Truly an honor to watch Trout play.
We are so spoiled as Angels fans.

So there we have it. 2018 was another great year on Halos Heaven, the Angels blog juggernaut that we’ve known to love over the years. Our community is the most important aspect of all, and I love seeing the dedication and love you guys have for this site, day in/day out. Even when the Angels are down in the dumps or we’re on Round 10 of Arte Moreno Did A Dumb Thing, we still have each other and we still have Halos Heaven. Give yourselves a round of applause!
