It’s been far too long since I’ve done this here at the blog. A busy autumn has me feeling like butter spread over too much bread (thanks for that saying, Bilbo). So, as in traditions past, today is your chance to share three things in the comments:
1) What’s the best blog post you read on the interwebs during the month of November?
2) What’s your favorite cereal? (We all know the answer to that one, but I’ll let you humor me with your substandard choices).
3) And, if you’re a blogger, what was the most popular post that you wrote during the month all the turkeys hate?
Leave your answers in the comments, and in the next few weeks I’ll try to read through all of them and give you a rundown of the best of the best.

1) From Single Parent Faith about “Creating Memories”: http://singleparentfaith.blogspot.com/2011/11/in-this-moment-creating-memories.html
2) Great Grains
3) I posted earlier this month for Comment Magazine an article called Non-Profit Moneyball: http://www.cardus.ca/comment/article/2984/
This was part review of the movie, part discussion of Jesus’ approach to team building and part reflection on how I apply these principles to my work with non-profits.
1) I really, really loved this post by Ken Hagerman: http://www.ramblingbarba.com/?p=467
2) Golden Grahams, and I’ll cut anyone who believes otherwise. Okay, not really. I’ll just wave a box of Golden Grahams in their face and ask them why they hate goodness so much.
3) I finally got around to writing about my relationship with my best friend, who just happens to be a man. I write about him all the time, but never about the dynamic of our cross-gender relationship. Some really good discussion on this one, “More Than Friends”: http://www.alise-write.com/2011/11/more-than-friends.html
Thanks and congrats to you on your release day! WOOHOO!
I loved that More than Friends post, Alise. One of my favorites of the month.
1. I’m not sure I can say I had a favorite because I have a group of them. So to spare you a ton of links, I’ve enjoyed all the posts from Mashable.
2. Alise made me laugh aloud, but since she clarified that she wouldn’t actually cut me, I’ll be honest, Raisin Nut Bran. No, I’m not 80, I just grew up on it and love it!
3. My blog this month would have to be one I wrote about the Penn State scandal and a perspective I think is important that isn’t being addressed. http://www.adamsloope.com/2011/11/mcqueary-milgram-and-nazis.html
Not sure about #1
But as for #2 – Cap’n Crunch
#3 – I’ve recently started doing videos, and this was one of my favorite ones, that also turned out to be the top post for the month on my site: http://inklingmedia.net/2011/11/07/putting-klout-perks-and-online-influence-to-the-test/
1. My favorite of the month was this one from Kathy Escobar: http://kathyescobar.com/2011/11/01/rising-up-from-below/
2. Any of the granola/berries/raisins hippie cereals.
3. This post about surviving family holiday gatherings was my most popular for the month: http://homekettle.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/tips-for-surviving-your-next-family-holiday-gathering/
i love those hippy cereals too!
1. I’ve been behind on my reading with school wrapping up in two weeks.
3. I’m not sure which was read more, but I know that I reworked a post about losing my dog from last year and the unexpected rush of memories that came back around that (goo.gl/qhG1r) and the post about why Father’s day is never quite the same anymore (goo.gl/IsYCf) were both pretty popular.
1) I’m going to check and just say that I love everything posted at http://www.bookriot.com, but especially this one http://bookriot.com/2011/11/30/when-used-books-attack-banana-edition/.
2)I’m going with Cookie Crisp. (Bring on the scorn, Shawn.)
3) My most popular post was “What Vulnerable Honesty Adds to Nonfiction” – http://www.andilit.com/2011/11/01/what-vulnerable-honesty-adds-to-nonfiction/.
Thanks for this chance to share, Shawn.
By the way, I think it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that all of these cereal choices are actually SECOND-favorite cereals, falling far behind the incomparable Lucky Charms.
Cereal that gets soggy at the mere thought of milk touching it and “marshmallows” that chip teeth.
Eat fast. Get stronger teeth.
1. By far the best thing I read was I’m a Christian, Unless You’re Gay: http://www.danoah.com/2011/11/im-christian-unless-youre-gay.html
2. Um, I don’t really eat breakfast and if I do, it’s oatmeal all the way.
3. My favorite piece I wrote was In Which I’m the One That Got Away: http://www.leighkramer.com/blog/2011/11/one-that-got-away.html I wrote it not expecting much response and was blown away by the comments and emails I received.
P.S. Happy Release Day!!!
1. Some of the best posts I’ve read recent are Deborah Bryan’s posts on bullying and it’s consequences – http://tinyurl.com/dxxl3lm
2. Weetabix. Always evokes childhood memories.
3. Judging from my blog’s analytics, my most popular post was ‘The Enemies of Books: Why we need books, libraries and a free internet’. Actually, never mind November, it ‘s my most popular post for a long time; it’s at http://tinyurl.com/ct3ty9t
1) I thought this post by Walt Mueller was insightful: http://learningmylines.blogspot.com/2011/11/faces-change-youth-worker-and.html
2) granola..preferably home made
3) a post on absurd Christmas commercials seem to strike a nerve http://goo.gl/As9tT
1. A recent favorite post I read, that helped me to understand my own boys better. http://nathanjclarkson.wordpress.com/2011/10/25/what-am-i-i-am-a-boy-becoming-a-man/
2. Chocolate Chunk Hazlenut Biscotti Granola… basically almost not granola and all dessert for breakfast.
3. This is a recent post I wrote about a dear friend’s visit: http://growoldwithme2.wordpress.com/2011/11/15/blue-nailpolish/
1. This post at Modern Reject was thought provoking as well as the comments http://modernreject.com/2011/11/what-if-god-treated-us-the-way-we-treat-him/
2. We don’t get much selection down here so it’s Fruit Loops.
3. I had no idea my Folks with Sin post would do so well. It’s inspired by the Dr. Seuss favorite Green Eggs and Ham. http://wp.me/p1TFvp-7x There’s even audio for a read along just like when we were kids.
1) I’m way beyond the baby-bedtime-routine stage, but I loved this post by Abraham Piper. My 5-minute, ultra-perfunctory, baby bedtime routine. http://ht.ly/7Hc6m
2) Kashi… Crunch! Honey Almond Flax (I know, I know … but I’m kinda nutty and flakey)
3) I never expected this, but these two posts are almost tie for my most-read this month … Why am I Bothered by the Duggars?
And My Philadelphia Half-Marathon Recap… http://www.janetober.com/2011/11/22/philadelphia-marathon-runners-world-bart-yasso/
1. Zombies, Wine and Christian Music. (Awesome title!) http://gungormusic.com/#!/2011/11/zombies-wine-and-christian-music/
2. Cap’n Crunch.
3. My favorite and the one that got the most reads are two different things so I’ll go with the one I liked: Gifting a legacy …
