As any blogger will tell you: this is an act of love (and sweat).  In the process of 6 years of blogging, there are a number of posts that continue to have meaning for me, and which I think you’ll enjoy, too (even if they were written quite a while ago).  In essence this is my personal BEST-OF for PR-Squared.
