And by the way, Merry Christmas! With any luck this will be the only new article on the internet today and our hits will go through the roof.

Wednesday is list day. This is list #16.

* I’m so, so sorry.

  1. Where is list #15, you probably are not asking? It was a post on working at home, and I pulled it at the last minute. Here are five reasons why:

    1. It revealed my weaknesses.

    2. I changed my mind about some things in the time that passed between writing the post and it going live.

    3. Why give free advice to my competitors?

    4. I really don't have it figured out, even after ten or twelve years.

    5. The advice was too specific to me in particular.

    I'll rewrite it sometime.
