After 200 days of writing on 200WAD, I have a decent selection of posts. Most of them are of the standard, run-of-the-mill variety. Then there are a few that might have inklings of something special.

When tv shows or radio shows are on long enough, they create "best of" episodes of what the creators deem to be the best moments. 

As a milestone to celebrate 200 posts, I am going to select my own Best Of list. I encourage anyone on #Teamstreak who reaches the 200 Club to do the same thing starting with @basilesamel @valentino @vickenstein In fact, I will help you curate your list if you would like assistance. 

I combed through every one of my posts on 200WAD. This is a tough mission because there are some posts that I'm particularly fond of, but they may not be hits with the masses. Then again, there might be other posts that resonated within the community but to me are nothing special. So, the list will probably change, but I gotta start somewhere. By the way, if you can point to a post that didn't make the list but you think should have, let me know.

Without further adieu, here is the start of my Best Of collection.

My story about taking charge of my health

Letter to my current self

My ode to pizza

Keep going


Inaction becomes a habit

A man going into a women's restroom

Can't stop me now

    @brandonwilson - Congratulations on Day 200! Remarkable.

    How do you only have 9 posts selected? I think your write up after Steve Jobs should be in there. It doesn't matter that it wasn't posted here. I like @brianball 's suggestion to make it into a book. Since you already went over all, make them into collections by topic and get to publishing!

    Congratulations again.
    We shall join you soon.

    @brandonwilson Congrats! 200 is huge =)

    That's a great idea. The problem is that it's hard to be objective on something you wrote. What might be best for me personally, might not be 'the most liked or viewed'. Especially since most of my posts are technical in nature. Anyway, I have some ideas on which of my posts I really like, but if you want to chime in as well I would welcome that (not sure if you'd prefer to talk on Slack or here, same for me).

      @valentino You are right, it's tough to curate your own work. Perhaps the community can help refine the list. Find me on Slack and let me know which posts you are thinking about.

    @brandonwilson - 200 words x 200 days -- that's 40,000 words. I think a paperback is in the range of 40K to 70K ( at least according to https://marketingtwentyone.co.uk/how-long-should-my-business-book-be/ )

    So, now, it's time to edit, put in 2x or 3x what you've already put in to focus the message and you've got a book.

      @brianball The numbers make sense. I like the way you're thinking.
