The Best of 2007 on Talking Story

Each December we look over the past year to see which Talking Story articles have resonated most strongly with the Ho‘ohana Community. This is always a fascinating exercise for me, for they are not necessarily those I would have chosen, or had felt strongest about in the writing: They make this list by merit of their visits tracked during the calendar year according to FeedBurner.

These are the twenty-four which have emerged as the front runners for 2007, listed from the most recent (December 2007) to the oldest (January 2007).
