I regularly highlight my picks for the nine or ten (or several more) most useful posts for each month — not including “The Best…” lists. I also use these in a more extensive monthly newsletter I send-out. You can see back issues of those newsletters here and my previous “Top Ten” picks at Websites Of The Month.

These posts are different from the ones I list under the monthly “Most Popular Blog Posts.” Those are the posts the largest numbers of readers “clicked-on” to read.

I’m publishing this list a bit earlier than usual because I’m going to focus my time over the holiday break on writing my third book, and wanted to get a head start on some regular posts.

Here are the posts I personally think are the best, and most helpful, ones I’ve written during this past month (not in any order of preference):
