    I think L David made some valid points, but I agree with Michael on this one. I personally fall into the category of individuals who, time permitting, keep up with all of Michael's posts. However, on occasion, my schedule is too hectic for a while and finding a post like this in my existing feed is quite helpful. Maintaining two separate feeds, to me, would be more troublesome than simply skipping over a "best of" post on occasion.

    List of Servant Leadership Companies
    This is my top post for September and is a new resource on the site. I compiled this list out of frustration, when I was unable to locate one for myself. This likely speaks to it's popularity as well.

    Thank you for sharing these lists Michael. I also enjoyed the better About page post. Although I've yet to implement all that I learned from it, I did create a Twitter-specific About page.

    I was honestly (pleasantly) surprised to find myself the most frequent commenter for the month. I assure you, that was not my objective. Instead, in addition to your insights, I appreciate the content and character of most of your followers. Therefore, I hope we see more dialog on this site and encourage these communications. Feedback is nice, but conversation is even better.

    My top post was: Two Major Problems the Church Faces Today

    I think maybe it was because it talked about problems etc…just a guess.

    Your post about creating a better About Me page was most helpful. I put together a more intentional About Me page for my website. Thanks for the great thoughts.

    Stay blessed…john

    My top blog post for September was "How to Raise a Superstar" —…. It was a two-parter.

    This post ranked at the top because it provided me personally with insights about raising my children. In the post, I was not espousing my own parenting principles. Instead, I was learning from others as I typed. This process helped me think through how other fathers lived, parented, and earned the respect of their children.
