On the sidebar, the reader will see that I have created a list for the top ten posts, as voted on by the readers. I'm going to remove the poll as soon as I publish this - but I wanted to take time to thank everyone who helped choose the 54 titles for the poll and for voting in the poll itself. I think the Gentle Readers made good choices ~ these are at least some of my favorite posts to write, to be certain.
All of them, I notice, represent a big chunk of writing. The two 10,000 word posts, the Preparation and Petard posts (both 7,000 words+), the posts that were the start of a string of posts, all demonstrate that the argument tl;dr is not part of the lexicon of my readers. You like a lot of writing. I will remember this in the future, particularly since most of the longer posts on this blog rarely yield more than two or three comments.
It has been an educational experience. I believe that next year around this time I will encourage readers to make a list of 2017 posts, then see if any of those challenge the top ten already posted.
Thank you again. I'm going to think now about what else I can write.
