Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

At the end of each month, I’ll also compile a few of them that I think readers might find particularly useful.

In August, I posted A Look Back: Best Posts From 2007 To 2009.

In September, I posted A Look Back: 2010’s Best Posts From This Blog.

It took me a shorter amount of time to share 2011’s “Best” posts – it was either not a very good year or I’m becoming more selective 🙂

Here they are:
