The 6th Annual Creme de la Creme list opens tomorrow for submissions and I am ready! 

Are you?

Recently I have enjoyed revisiting my archives and reflecting on older posts that I wrote over the past 4 1/2 years via my new blog hop/writing exercise Time Warp Tuesdays (many thanks to all who have participated so far). So when I started looking through my posts to pick one to submit to the Creme for 2011, I struggled to decide which was my favorite. I have been very motivated and inspired to write this year, so I felt that I had a lot of good material to choose from. 

I have always been a fan of Top Ten Lists, so I thought it would be fun to create one with my ten favorite posts from this year, with one exception — I am leaving the #1 spot blank. To find out which post that I believe belongs there go to Mel’s blog, Stirrup Queens, on January 1, 2012 and check out the 2011 Creme de la Creme list (which will include a link to my favorite blog entry)!

My Top Ten Favorite “Four of a Kind” Blog Entries from 2011:

10. Delicious Ambiguity (May 26, 2011)

9.   Gatekeepers (September 4, 2011)

8.   I Want to Linger Here… (July 10, 2011)

7.   Endings are Important (July 23, 2011)

6.   What Is (January 24, 2011)

5.   Perfect Moment Monday: “I’m That Someone…” (April 18, 2011)

4.   What Works For Me (April 20, 2011)

3.   Bereavement & Social Media (August 17, 2011)

2.   4 Years of Blogging: Things I Have Learned (April 10, 2011)

1.   Check out Mel’s list of the 2011 Creme de la Creme on January 1, 2012 to find out what 
      I and other bloggers chose and submitted as our favorite posts that we wrote this year. 
     Update: My post on the 2011 List (#5) — Breathing (A Poem) (August 23, 2011)

Now it your turn! What are your Top Ten (or even your Top Five) from 2011?

If you make a list please let me know, you can share a link in the comment section if you want. I would love to read some of your favorite posts from the past year (that I might have missed the first time around or will get the chance to revisit). Whether or not you make a “Best of” list of your posts from 2011, make sure you pick at least one to submit to the Creme, starting tomorrow, and then return on 1/1/12 to find out what I, and many other awesome bloggers, consider to be some of the best writing in the blogosphere from the past year!

Update (10/20/11): The list is now open! Click on the link below to review the details for this year and submit your post.

Ooh! I can't wait to read all of these. I'll put together a Top Ten list for this year too and post it and link here. Might not happen until the weekend but I'll definitely do it.

Tina – Thank you! xoxo

Esperanza – Thank you! I would love to see and read yours too! Please do post a link if and when you do it. 🙂

Oooh, I love this idea — more people should do it. Especially when it wasn't clear which one you should pick.

Thank you Mel! It was a fun and useful exercise to help me decide which post to submit this year! 🙂
