My Favorite Posts That Appeared In April

 

I regularly highlight my picks for the most useful posts for each month — not including “The Best…” lists. I also use some of them in a more extensive monthly newsletter I send-out. You can see older Best Posts of the Month at Websites Of The Month (more recent lists can be found here).

You can also see my all-time favorites here. I’ve also been doing “A Look Back” series reviewing old favorites, too.  Check out A Look Back: 2018’s Best Posts From This Blog – Part Two.

The Upshot is the New York Times column that regularly produces some fascinating interactive infographics, many which I share here.
