    By including your best posts you have made your best post ever. I suggest you archive this in a spot different from the other archives and maybe start up a similar lists for 2009.

    Hmm…DT didn’t reach out to me. Must be leaving the best for last. 🙂

    Did you do a manual selection of these posts, or select them based on a popularity measure?

  3. Corey Rosenbloom Says:


    Oh no! DT posted an open invitation to email him your choice for inclusion – go ahead and get your pick to jim. I like how you do your best posts of the month posts – I’m always meaning to do that.

    I actually went through a list of all my 2008 posts and hand selected those I thought were most valuable to readers – I wish I’d found an easier way. I’ll try your style of Best Posts of the Month then choose the top of those for ’09.
