With the arrival of the end of the calendar year, it seems fitting (if not obligatory for bloggers) to create some sort of list reflecting the year in review. I hesitate to call the list that follows, the “best” blog posts of the year, as I am certain that there were some better, somewhere. But each of these, for a variety of 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.
The links below offer up far more reading than most will care to do, but you might try a few and see how they strike you.
Happy New Year!
