A recent post in one of my favourite blogs, I’d Rather Be Writing, referred me to a fantastic article on the bokardo blog entitled “9 Lessons for Would-be Bloggers”. Amongst other gems (including, especially, the author-asserting qualifier that all blog entries should be considered forever beta) the one suggestion that revealed a gaping hole in my own page design was the inclusion of a “greatest hits” page.
In my true-to-life self-deprecating fashion I’d like to say that it was difficult wading through the crap to find a few gems worthy of declaring my best foot to put forward. But I can’t. The truth is that, indeed amongst the crap, there are a few posts I’ve written that I’m particularly proud of and actually enjoy re-reading on occasion.
Amongst the 94 posts in my 16 months of blogging I’ve selected 13 to represent the best I have to offer. Flipping through the remaining 78 posts often made me want to delete everything but my best-of, but it’s all beta, Brian, it’s all beta.
And so I invite you, my favourite people on Earth, my new readers and old, to shift your gaze down the southeastern corner of your monitor to the “Best of Demodulated” heading on my sidebar. What you read there may be more indicative of my potential than my consistency, but that’s probably how you’re most interested in spending your valuable time anyway.
I read and appreciate each of your comments, even if critical, so don’t be dissuaded by the age of the posts.
P.s., since I’m really the only person using the search functionality I’ve removed the “Top Lookups” statistics, showing the most frequently searched keywords, from the sidebar.
