TechRaptor had a fantastic year of writing, with a number of great original content pieces, investigative journalism articles, and a consistent stream of news. With an average of 12+ articles a day, before the holiday season, our readers are able to look forward to a number of articles to find on the site each day!
We figured it would be neat to look back at our most-read articles of 2018, excluding reviews and (most) guides, to see what our readers consumed the most on TechRaptor. Plus a few we feel you NEED to read.
