Jon Swift Memorial Roundup 2011

Batocchio at Vagabond Scholar has posted this year’s John Swift Memorial Roundup of “The Best Posts of the Year, Chosen by the Bloggers Themselves”.

On the Balloon Juice front, it includes a frippery from yours truly, and characteristically fine posts from Kay and Tom Levenson and from a number of BJ favorites, such as TBogg’s “Bristol Palin’s Airing of Grievances” (which crams more spite into 400 words than I had thought possible) and Driftglass’ tragic fuckeulogy (TM – The Bugle) for David Broder.

More importantly, there are dozens of posts from bloggers great and small and new and old (and quite often sweary) which will have your bookmarking finger working overtime.

I particularly liked “Scenes from the first week of school” from A Blog about School, Stonekettle Station’s “Everybody’s So Different, I Haven’t Changed“, “On Inoculation” by nothstine at p3, and the quite lovely “This one is for my dad” from Mock, Paper, Scissors.

I’m also a little annoyed that no one ever told me about Zaius Nation or Chimpanzee Tea Party.
