Writeapalooza 2008: Vote for Your Favorite Post

By December 29, 2008 culture, faith, language No Comments

Welcome to Writeapalooza 2008! It’s a recap of my favorite posts from the past year, suggested and introduced by Janie at Write Anything.

It’s a curious thing to review your work and select the ones you liked best . . . seems like an exercise in self-promotion. Shouldn’t the readers decide which posts were best?

Perhaps this could be an interactive exercise—I’ve selected a few posts that were dearest to my heart, and you, dear readers, can vote for the post you preferred most. (That sounds a bit Dr. Seuss-y, huh?) Poll participation is anonymous (and quick and painless!) but your comments are always welcome here.

I’ve placed my favorites into the categories mentioned in my blog’s tagline: musings on faith, language, and culture. These writings give a good snapshot of what runs through this brain of mine.

Hope you’ll pull up a chair and stay a bit. [And then vote!] Enjoy!
