The _____ Blog Posts of 2008

If you look around the blogosphere this time of year, there are all sorts of lists that reflect something about 2008.  (Isn’t there some unspoken rule that bloggers must do such a post near the year’s end?)  Sensing that to be the case, I feel some sense of obligation to do one myself.  I know.  Simply following the crowd is hardly a good reason to do anything, but as you’ll see, this was actually premeditated and planned early last year.

I hesitate to call the list that follows, the “best” blog posts of the year, as I am certain that there were some better.  But each of these, for various reasons, caused me to stop at the time and make a record of them for a return visit some day.  Each struck me at the time as particularly insightful, or helpful to solidifying my thoughts on a subject, so I saved them.  And here they are.

This offers up far more reading than most will care to tackle, but you might try a few and see how they strike you.
