So Long, World Cup

It’s hard to believe that the World Cup is already over.  And with Germany coming out on top, what a lot of fun it has been.  We’ve had thirteen bloggers covering the ups and downs of the event since the beginning, and we wanted to take a moment to thank all of them for writing and all of you for reading and commenting.

We ended up with a total of 60 World Cup posts (which you can still find here if you just want to keep reliving the event) with Joshua Burns as our blogging superstar with over 18 percent of the posts.  Here here.  Thank you so much guys!

If you’d like to continue to follow any of our World Cup writers, head over to their blogs and twitter feeds and profiles and say hello!  (You’ll find their information below.)
