August’s Best Posts From This Blog

I regularly highlight my picks for the most useful posts for each month — not including “The Best…” lists. I also use some of them in a more extensive monthly newsletter I send-out. You can see older Best Posts of the Month at Websites Of The Month (more recent lists can be found here).

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

August’s Updated “Best” Lists

I am constantly adding new resources to my over 1,700 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 well over 300 lists over the past eighteen months.

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

The Best Resources For Learning About Neil Armstrong

The Best Places Where Students Can Post Book Reviews For Authentic Audiences
