In mid-December I announced a contest to encourage members of the Best Practices Course to add comments, feedback and questions on the website pages. We received dozens of submissions, and a number of them were quite noteworthy in terms of length, depth and/or passion. I have picked seven of my personal favorites, and am reposting them here on this page.

Thank you for your help and your participation. As promised, everyone who submitted a comment on the website will be invited to participate in a special bonus Q&A session in mid-January. Those who cannot attend will be given access to the recording.

Please help me decide which one of these 7 comments below is the winner! Simply read or skim through these posts and give them a rating from 1 to 10.

When we have enough rankings, I’ll close the contest and award the iPod Nano or one hour of consulting services to the person who submitted that comment.
