Margie Clayman’s 100 Favorite Blog Posts of 2011

I can’t really say that doing something one year is the stuff traditions are made of, but once you do something for two years, well, there’s a chance it might catch on.

With that in mind, I present you, for the second year in a row, with my favorite blog posts of the year. This year, presented in no particular order or categorization (uncharacteristically for me!). Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!


 

I hope you enjoy this list. I know I didn’t include every post that touched me this year. But these are a good solid handful.

Margie finally getting caught up on my December reading - thank you so much for being included in this list. Its an amazing round up, and some that I'd missed, which means now I'll need to catch up on my January reading list :) While I know we'll never stamp out BSOS, maybe can contain it. Happy 2012.

Thanks so much, Margie — honored to be included on a @margieclayman list of anything! There are so many great writers and posts to read here, but I know it will be worth looking them all up if they pass the “Margie Test”. Thanks again, Margie, you’re the best! (and have now accomplished my goal of including “Margie” in every one of my sentences!)

This is a FANTASTIC roundup! I remember so many of these from earlier in the year. @Marcus_Sheridan 's post was definitely a memorable one as were many of the others. I'm also glad to have discovered a lot of others that I missed and some new folks too! Thanks for giving me some good content to chew on over the holidays.

Oh, and thanks for including me too, friend. I'm honored to be here with such a stellar lineup. I appreciate you! :)

BTW - Love the list feature. Really cool! Are you going to share your secret for doing it?

Margie,

If anyone is a "monstrous" writer, it's YOU and I don't think any of these writers would disagree. But thank you so much for the compliment! You've been an inspiration to all of us. You're my muse. Just love ya Margie and you know it!

Margie --

Thank you for including me in your amazing year end round up. Your curation talents are as strong as your marketing ones. This is a post worth bookmarking and dipping into. Big round of applause for providing us with holiday reading.

I agree that it's sad about the passing of Trey Pennington and Bruce Sevran.

Happy marketing,

Heidi Cohen

Margie - An amazing list. How the heck can you read all these blogs this and list all these blogs and write your own blog and run #tweetdiner and oh yes, eat and sleep and work and do laundry and everything IRL??

What a list! And I am honoured to be on it. It's a good to be reminded that I really do love the Internet because you know there are times the popular sentiments online make me beyond inconsolable. Thank you Margie for your kindness. And thank you even more for always showing me great content and introducing me to amazing minds.

Margie, Wow! Two posts of mine that made the list? You know I'm just barking recklessly out in the back yard, right? Thank you. I don't know how you keep track of all of this and still write as much quality yourself as you do. I can barely remember what I had for breakfast -- and I'm writing this at 8:20 am! When the world all goes to crap, we need to save the librarians, copy editors, artists and writers or we will never make sense out of how to rebuild.

You always leave me a bit flustered when you put me on one of your lists. Not only do I think I don't deserve to be there, but it humbles me even more when I realize someone else is reading my thoughts and think they are good enough to share. It reminds me of that no matter where we are, we are all sleeping underneath the same big sky, wishing on the same bright star.

A very warm (and somewhat teary right now) happy holidays to you Margie.

Whoooeee, not only did I make a list, I'm in some pretty high cotton over here. Thanks so much for including me.

How you keep track of this and then put it together is incredible. Sounds like work to me; maybe that is why I stay away from it..........:)

Very impressive and thanks for sharing; I will definitely have to check these posts out.

Wow - what a labor of love putting this together, Margie! I clicked on a number of those links for posts I either never saw, or need to re-read. Some great minds assembled here - despite my inclusion... :>}

Honored and delighted to be a part of this incredible resource. Thanks for putting this out. It's a ton of work to bring a huge wrap-up together, and I love your choices here. Some real gems i hadn't seen, too. Just another reason you're at the top of my own list - favorite people I've never met. Let's' change that.

Thank you so very much for including my post. I wrote that in the middle of packing the car after midnight. It was an amazing journey that was shared with you and for that I am grateful. It was a long road and as I took a minute the other day and looked back on 2011 it was not until I wrote down accomplishments and failures that I realized how incredibly amazing this journey was. There were the ups and hard downs but in the end, I fought and fought hard. I fought with every bone, muscle, organ, vein and capillary I had and always believed that the harder you believe and fight, the prize will be yours. I can honestly say without any reservations that it was all worth it to have the happiness that I have every single day in NJ. I am so blessed and so lucky to have all the people through this journey who ensure that Every.Single.Day. I am smiling I love what I have. I got here because of the strength that others kept alive in me. Nothing is better that that.

Thanks for the inclusion. I'm glad something that I wrote sparked a reaction or an idea. Over time, I've realized that whether or not anyone actually agrees with what I write is incidental; to me, if a reader feels compelled to form an opinion at all, that's a sign that a post was worth writing. Best wishes for continued inspiration in 2012 and beyond.

@spofcher You think I do laundry? How sweet :)

@dogwalkblog Aww. Well, you have great thoughts to share (especially for a dog). Really you should be the star of a movie. I can't figure out how you type ;)

You're awesome and are more than deserving. No teary eyes allowed!

@SteveWoodruff Steve Steve silly Steve - you are right where you belong :)

I'm not as nice as all of that though. Everyone on this list is going to chip in for my PT bill cuz of all the typing I did :) hehe :)

Happy Holidays, m'friend!
