Jon Swift Memorial Roundup 2010

The blogging community lost a good friend and brilliant writer in 2010; Al Weisel, who wrote as Jon Swift, died suddenly last spring. One of his legacies, though, was his championing of smaller blogs such as this little effort, and he and skippy also promoted Blogroll Amnesty Day where he would go out of his way to promote blogs that didn’t get 10,000 hits a day.

To honor his memory and to keep up his tradition of promoting other bloggers, Batocchio of Vagabond Scholar sent out a request for those of us who had participated in Jon’s work to send in links to what we thought were our best posts of the year. He has now posted that list, and when you look down it, you’ll find some of the best writing out there by some of the best bloggers in the business. For some strange reason, he included my selection as well.

Thank you, Batocchio, for keeping Al’s memory and good works alive.
