Ten straight guest posts, starting Monday. Don’t miss them!

August 27th, 2010

Starting Monday, I will be putting up one guest post each weekday for two weeks straight–including Labor Day!

This all started when I was originally planning on taking vacation all next week. So, I thought it would be cool to ask you to submit a guest post. The plan was for me to pick the five best and publish them.

Well, a few things changed. It looks like my vacation will only begin Wednesday (too much stuff going on). And I received a lot of interesting guest submissions. After reading them all, I decided to post up ten of them beginning Monday, regardless of whether I am going to be on vacation or not.

I want to say a few things about the guest posts before I begin publishing them. First, I can’t publish all of them. For those of you whose submissions I didn’t publish, I still want to thank you for taking the time to submit something. They were all good.

Second, some of the posts are opinionated and controversial. I believe in free speech. I’m publishing a couple submissions that I don’t entirely agree with, but I think the topic should be debated. I just want to make it clear that the opinions are those of the author, and not necessarily mine.

So, starting Monday, let the fun begin!

    This should be fun! Looking forward to reading them all. Especially those controversial ones. Nothing like a little controversy to spark discussion.

    Ya-hoo! It will be a fun ride, I’m betting. Have a great time while you’re away, brother!

    What a great idea John. Based on some of the comments you get on your own posts, I imagine these guest posts will be pretty entertaining.

  4. Should be interesting – I think I need a drink!

    I’ll be very interested to see the posts also. I like posts that challenge you to think or give a different opinion. Hopefully readers will be polite and civil in any comments they make!

    Davin, you should have posted a “Canada vs. The World” post. I wonder what sort of response that one would have gotten. ; )

    Your site has been a great source for me to “get learned” (as they say in my part of the world) on the best Canada has to offer. A gentleman was in my local shop Friday and was staring at the Crown Black. I haven’t had it but saw he was struggling with the decision. I leaned over and said, “the guy at says this stuff is wonderful in a recent review”. He looked at me and said, “That ‘s all I needed to hear. Thanks”. So tell Crown you sold ’em a bottle down here in TN.
