Published this year’s “Best Of” page tonight. You can find it over on the left under Highlight Reels.
In the beginning, ten years ago, this was two different and separate blogs, The Miata Diaries with stories about the car and how it fit into my life and the other, called Brian’s Daily Rant, was a place for me to bitch about what got stuck in my craw each day. There was so much stuff written during the year that I had a hard time weaning out all the quality posts to get it down to just one best per each month.
Somewhere around 5 or 6 years ago I merged the two into this one. The total posts diminished and soon after the caliber of content did too. For the last couple of years I have wished I could have cheated and used a second post from one month to use in the place of another month with nothing that I felt qualified.
And as I look back on this year I don’t see very many posts that qualify either, mostly they were just just recaps of geocaching adventures or pictures of papercraft projects. In an effort to at least post something when I didn’t feel like writing I would often upload a photo. So for the Best Of 2011 I have used no words, just my best picture from each month.
