Best Of The Week Posts (Intro)

As those of you who follow me on Twitter know, over the past couple of months I’ve been posting blog posts that I feel are exceptionally well-written, or worth sharing for content related reasons. This weekly feature has been hashtagged #BestOfTheWeek, and is intended to help generate traffic to blog posts (and, by extension, bloggers) who deserve it.

Now that I’ve been posting these recommendations for a while, I’ve recommended a lot of posts. Going forward, I’ll be sharing my best of the week posts here every Sunday, as well as on Twitter. That said, I’ve got tons of posts I need to share here to get me caught up. I’ve tried to categorize them the best I could, however some posts may fall into multiple categories.

    1. I feel like there’s a few of your posts that I’ve shared before that I missed in this roundup. You still won politics by a landslide though.

  1. WOW. Thank you, seriously, for your support and readership. It’s good to know that people enjoy what I have to say. 🙂

  2. Damn you… I have way too many tabs open now. Guess I better start reading…

    PS. Really glad you’re doing this on the blog now.

    PPS. Thank you so much for including me in the list. It’s good to be in there with such amazing bloggers.

    1. My first and foremost life goal is always to slow other people’s browsers down to the point where I’m the most efficient worker. It seems I’m successful.

      I’ll likely still announce the four blogs I pick each week on Twitter, but then post them all here after the fact in a roundup-style post. My hope is that people will send blogs my way to be considered for this. There’s great blogs out there, however I rarely have time to read outside of those people I follow regularly.

  3. It is an honor to be mentioned multiple times along with other noteworthy bloggers. I must get back in [blogging] shape so that I can keep on contributing. 😀

  4. Thank you! I appreciate the honor of being listed here. I was also wondering why that post was getting so much traffic again. lol. 🙂

    1. Of course. You wrote a great post, so it’s worth sharing again. I just wasn’t sure as to how to attribute to you. Hopefully what I’ve put on there is fine.

  5. Thanks Tim!!! I feel honoured that I made it on this list more than once. It would also explain the new spike in spam comments attacking my Women Against Feminism post 😉 Lol. But seriously, thank you 🙂 You are awesome.

    1. Wait, seriously? I mean, I get that people are dicks about equality, but that’s dumb.

      Also, I can’t get the link to your feminism post to load. Did I copy the wrong link?

      Like

        1. Odd. Considering I didn’t post this up until Sunday afternoon, I feel like this post couldn’t have been the only source. Either way, the link is fixed.

          Like

          1. I was more joking about you being the cause of it 😛 Although there has been a spike since you posted it, I think it’s likely more a coincidence that the spams sky-rocketed again on that post. My theory is someone from that group is spamming out the link – it’s the only post that gets spam comments, and in absolute ridiculous numbers.
