Ten Best Days: 2002 – 2013

The idea for keeping a “Best Ten Days” list came from Alex, who first mentioned the idea when he and I were hanging out in Chinatown in 2003. At the time, I had just started the blog, and Alex mentioned how I was uniquely able to look back on an entire year, and determine which days were good, and which ones were bad.

And just like that, while chatting in a Chinese bakery, the “Ten Best Days” list was born.

Originally, I started posting the list right around the blog’s start date, near the beginning of July. A result was that for some of the earlier lists, they spill over more than one year. Moving forward, my goal is to review each year as a whole.

As I was creating the list for 2008, I decided that hunting for these lists would be a huge hassle. It made sense to bring everything together in one place, and to carve out a separate section on the site.

Looking over this list, it’s a bit daunting. So far, I’ve got about eight years of “Ten Best Days,” which is a little crazy when I stop to think about it. A few more years, and I’ll have 10 years’ worth.

Nine years so far! One more year, and it’ll be a decade. Good lord, that’s crazy.

It’s official: one decade. That’s one hundred great days!

We’re at 110 best days – hard to believe it’s been over a decade!

I invite you to stop in and to browse around a bit. And whenever it is that you find this and arrive here, I’m hoping you’re having a good day.
