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.
