Our blogs have a serious side, and a silly side. And apparently our readers do, too, because both types of posts were popular with PlasticsNews.com blog readers in 2016.
We have 10 staffers blogging for Plastics News, plus I get regular contributions from others, including Hollee Keller, that I use in my section, The Plastics Blog. I've been blogging for as long as I can remember, but most of the other blogs are just about a year and a half old.
Just like last year, rather than a straight countdown, I'll highlight the most popular item from each of the blogs, plus a few extra from the Top 10.
Staff reporter Kerri Jansen's most popular post of 2015 was about an unusual experience she had at Fakuma 2015 in Germany. She nearly followed that up with a similar offbeat story this year from K 2016.
But the key word there is almost.
Kerri's most popular blog of 2016 was on a more serious subject: Is plastic 'authentic'?
It looks at issues that industrial designers, plastics companies and consumers have with plastic products, and how they sometimes have a negative connotation in comparison to conventional materials.
Kerri's blog is called Reactions.
