Top 20 of 2018

2018 was another massive year for Tradie Mayhem.

We didn’t quite crack quarter-of-a-million followers, but we’re only a few thousand off.

Below we’ve put together the top 20 most ‘liked’ photos of the year. There were so many good ones, but these really are the cream of the crop.

Some more stats before we get to the photos… For the year our content received 320,115 comments, 190,538 reactions and 22,045 shares. Bloody huge!

And here are the best of the best, counting down from 20 to 1…
