You can also see my all-time favorites here. I’ve also been doing “A Look Back” series in anticipation of this blog’s tenth anniversary in February.

December’s Updated “Best” Lists

I am constantly adding new resources to my over 1,600 categorized “Best Lists.

I also regularly “cull” through the lists to weed-out dead links, but haven’t been very systematic about doing that task.

So, I’ve started to go through them and highlight the ones that I’ve gotten around to completely cleaning-up and revising. I’ve completed this process with 249 lists so far this year.

Here are a list of them from this month (you can see previous compilations here):

The Best Resources For “Bill Of Rights Day”
