Closing Out 2010 with 35 Top 10 Lists

I’ve been entrenched in the blogging world for almost 4 years now. Each year at this time of year I see numerous “Best of this blog’s” series. Although, I may end up compiling a best of GenPink post before the year ends I decided some time in November that I wanted to close out the year with some insight from the best and brightest.

With the winter weather and holiday celebrations many people allow their brains to shut off during the end of the year. I’m quite the opposite. I love the transition into a new year, with new beginnings, new posibilities and fresh start. I have always used the end of the year as a time of contemplation and analysis, of how my year stacked up in comparision to my goals. This year my network of awesome/brilliant people has grown tenfold. I’ve always liked hanging out with smart people and it seems this was the year to really get to be apart of something bigger. Professionally. Personally. Online and Offline.

And so… thirty five guest authors contributed 35 Top 10 Lists on varying topics. I highly recommend taking the time to read and contemplate each post. There is so much inspiration, insight, and juice in each post. The entire series blew away my expectations. A special thank you to all of the contributing authors, everyone who left thought provoking comments, and any/all of you that shared the posts with your networks. Inspired by my previous guest post series – The ABCs of Life as Twentysomething, I decided to run this series in an ABC order as well.
