Just For You: A Cornucopia of Helpful Posts

It’s Thanksgiving week in the United States, and I’m going to continue the tradition I started last year by gathering together some of the best posts from this past year for your reading pleasure.

Blogs are funny: the information you write is presented chronologically and — over time — some of your most helpful posts get buried in the dusty archives of your website.

Once a year, I like to look back at what I’ve written, pull out the most useful stuff and put it back in front of you. That’s what today’s post is about.

Did You Say Hello Yet?

First off, if you haven’t said hello, please visit last week’s post and add a contribution. As of this writing there are well over 100 comments. Join the gang and share what you do, and where we can find you on the web.

I’ve organized the posts below into categories. Some of the links will take you to posts I’ve written for other websites, too.
