Thanksgiving CornucopiaWhether you are one of our stateside readers relaxing into a day off with family, friends, and/or comfort food, or just going about your Thursday business as usual, we hope you wouldn’t mind taking a moment with us to recognize the dedicated, knowledgeable staff who support this blog with original content all year round.

We’ve made a commitment to publish something new here each week. From a content management perspective, this is no trivial objective. Add in the research and due diligence underpinning the topics we cover, and sometimes it really can feel like it takes a village to make a blog post.

As an expression of thanks, a celebration of all the talented people who make this blog possible or just a chance to catch up, we’d like to take a week off highlight some of this year’s popular posts.
