Best of the busts: Best of 2020

 


I guess I am speaking for most of us when I say that I'm glad that 2020 is over. 2021 will be a better year. I promise.

And yet I want to take another moment to look back at 2020. We published 114 stories last year. Isn't that incredible? Very special thanks to all the guest authors who had a huge, huge part in that! Harry, Jimmy, Reg, Dominik, Jason, Xander, Mickey, Riley, shrews12001, Jonathan, Leo, Lee, David, Oscar, glamdring, White Worm, Robustidol and everybody else who contributed to this blog - thank you so much!

Now, usually we have a look at the Top Ten best rated stories from the last year at this point. But after analyzing the ratings I have to say I am stunned that we had more than ten stories that received the perfect rating of five stars. Here they are, all thirteen best-rated stories, all of them with a perfect 5-star-rating.

Dear Alex and the Ballbusting Boys Community,

I am hugely humbled by the love I have felt from my writing, and the number of stories on this list reflects that. Thank you all so much, I wouldn't still be writing if I didn't get to share my work with all of you!

I agree with you Alex, 2020 is in the past. Let's make 2021 a great year! Even though the year was awful some of the brightest points were found right here on this very blog. Thank you Alex and to all the other writers for contributing. In addition, thank you to all the readers that come every day. Your feedback and votes on our stories tell us so much. I know that I am not alone in saying that we strive to make our stories enjoyable for all.

Sincerely,

Jimmy
