I will confess that it was with some nervousness that I checked Kurt Harden's latest iteration of 25 Blogs Guaranteed to Make You Smarter. Being included on his list is a much-prized honor. We certainly don't do this sort of thing for money. Recognition from peers is about all the external reward to be had. Anyway, posting on this blog has been more than a bit spotty here of late. Would it still make the cut? Kurt, being a generous soul, gave me a pass. Will try to do better in the coming days to hold up my end of the bargain.
