The PRNewser Staff’s Favorite Stories of the Year


By Patrick Coffee Comment


We showed you the best, now click through the rest!

Just kidding. Everyone knows that traffic does not necessarily equal quality, right?

The PRNewser staff wrote more than 2,360 posts for this site in 2013, and some of our personal favorites didn’t quite make the year-end top 26 list. In order to put a little spin on the classic clickbait rankings story, we asked everyone who wrote for us regularly this year to pick three faves that didn’t appear on the top traffic list.

We hope you’ll enjoy our 2013 refresher. Oh, and Happy New Year!
