I thought Patrick's idea on the latest Saloon post was cool in that he asked Sean and I not to use our bookmarks, etc. to identify the most memorable posts of 2012.
We used Kohn's 'recall' post as inspiration. I would love for anyone to take a minute and
list posts they thought were most memorable (maybe even just write down pieces you remember at first). Then, go find them on the web and post. It would be cool to say one-two sentences of why that was burned in your brain (could be personal or communal)
thanks for playing,

Good idea to start a discussion on here Anthony. Of the 6 posts that you and Sean contributed, I had somehow managed to miss all of them, so it was a really worthwhile endeavour for me at least!
Hopefully we can dig up a load of under-rated gems.
Jon Cooper's linkbuilding and the other mega linkbuilding list. I remember because they're HUGE content ... and Danny Sullivan harassed the second guy... I also remember them because I like and save "useful" and these top the list for me. Ok, onto links for those.http://pointblankseo.com/link-building-strategies http://www.northcutt.com/blog/2012/04/500-ways-to-build-backlinks/ (1235+ ways to build backlinks)I remember Rand's Work/Life balance post because I left a comment that took me about an hour to write. I am *passionate* about work/life and think anyone who thinks it's "bullshit" has a very poor balance. http://moz.com/rand/there-is-no-worklife-balance/I don't know when the Excel for SEOs stuff was written but I clearly remember learning importXML from Tom, Seer and Distilled this year.http://www.distilled.net/excel-for-seo/http://www.seerinteractive.com/blog/importxml-cookbookAnd by now pretty much anyone who cares what I think anyway knows that my two favorite posts from the year are Jonathon Colmon and John Doherty's posts on improving what we're doing:http://www.johnfdoherty.com/do-the-work/http://www.jonathoncolman.org/2012/11/26/we-can-do-better-than-this/I think 2012 will be most memorable to me for RCS, a complete skills overhaul & upgrade, and the above posts. Hope that helps. :)
Interesting isn't it. The amount of SEO posts that are written in a year and hardly anyone can remember anything they like...
By the way, AJ just dropped some absolute corkers into the comments section on the Saloon post:
