A Final Blog Post for 2012

I feel both compelled and pressured to produce some sort of monumental final blog post for 2012 but am drawing blanks on a topic.┬áHaving considered and nixed several ideas including compiling a top 10 or 12 or 20 list and reflecting on the year as a whole, I decided to instead use this digital diary […]
