Month in Review - July's Most Popular Posts

Well another month has come and gone in 2011. This summer I have been busier than ever traveling and speaking at conferences and at schools across the country. It has been great to meet so many of you in person. Unfortunately, all the travel has taken a little bit of a toll on the frequency of blog posts. Not to worry though because when school starts in less than a month I won't be traveling and the blog post frequency will return to the normal four per day average.

Here are the most popular posts of July 2011:
