Weekend Link Love – Edition 78

By Worker Bee

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for…

The Best Posts of 2009!

I had a really tough time narrowing the 400+ blog posts down to a manageable list. This is what I ended up with. It’s a compilation of some of my favorites and those that seemed to resonate with readers.

Share your personal favorites from 2009 in the comment section.

If you need more of the best from ’09, Fitness Spotlight has gathered up a batch of great quotes and one-liners from their myriad of stellar articles.

Zen Habits knows habits. If you’ve made a resolution to change your habits in 2010, read this post.

If you own a pair of Vibram Fivefingers and you live in a cold climate, you may have suffered from naked ankle syndrome. Pay Now Live Later awkwardly attempts to resolve his naked ankle problem.

I’ve always said household chores are a great way to get some low level aerobic Primal exercise. But according to a new study, doing household chores may also improve your sex life.

You may already have your meat card, but I bet you don’t have a meat hat! (thanks, @tildenm)

  • Dear Mark: Sunglasses and Sunlamps – Sunlight is such a good thing, but what if it’s artificial? And what about direct sunlight on the eyeballs? Find the answers in this post.
  • Rewind and Fast Forward – Remember when the blog was red and I was a cartoon? This post is a marker for some of the changes that MDA has gone through in a year, plus a round up of the best posts of 2008.

Comment of the Week

Oh my god, you did a post on 80/20! A whole new level of respect :). Love Pareto and Parkinsons law and have had a lot of success with them.

Lots of good stuff this past year. I think my favorite thing is that the site further moved away from the flawed Cordain model of paleolithic eating to emphasize the importance of animal foods and saturated fats, without losing the wisdom of choosing the plant foods we eat wisely. And, of course, the fact that even with a book out, this site continues to provide great information to readers for free. Keep up the good work, all. 🙂
