Now it’s time to post my list of favorite entries – and what a challenge that is! The contest drew so many excellent entries that I had to figure out a way to determine my favorites.
The criterion I chose was simply this: did I learn something that I will put into use? That means I chose posts that filled gap in my knowledge. You may have other favorites, depending on what you find most useful.
The posts are listed in the order in which they appear on the master list.

If you haven’t checked out the entries, I recommend you do so. You don’t have to do like me and read (or at least skim) every entry (except a couple that weren’t available when I tried to access them). Read the posts submitted in the categories that interest you the most. I’ll be willing to bet you’ll learn something.
