My Best Blog Posts of 2011

Of course, not all of my blog posts are amazing.  In fact, many are not.  But these are the ones that stood out for me over the course of 2011.  I’ll place them in three categories:  general interest, current events, and personal.  And though some cover serious topics, I wrote in my natural voice, which is alternating between wit and philosophy – and when I get lucky – combining them.

  1. General Interest:  I’d say the first set is timeless.  These are blog posts I’d submit to another blog, be it comedy/humor or politics or whatever.  I feel they’re worthy of syndication.
  2. Current Events:  The next grouping is more timely.  I came up with stuff on the fly and posted it for the world to see.  Hopefully, they demonstrated my interest in the zeitgeist and some ability to capture it.
  3. Personal:  The final cluster contains entries that help you get to know me.
