Best of the Blog 2011

This week I’ll be posting all of my best-of lists for 2011, starting with this blog and moving on to songs, movies, and books.

Last year I posted an objective blog entry listing the top blog posts and most commented on blog posts of 2010. This year the blog grew by leaps and bounds, and I have all of you to thank for it. Whether you’re a new reader or a faithful follower, I really appreciate you being a part of this conversation.

I limited these lists to entries I published in 2011.
