Final Thoughts

This is the list so far.

Throughout 2017, I plan to blog about each of these topics at least once.

And, when I do, I will link to the topic in the same way that I did for number 21. (I actually added it to the list in May of 2016, but it made the official list this year.

So again, you have my list. Is there anything that you think I should add?
