The Lost Copy of 2011 Indie Faves

Any of our blogging friends will tell you it is not as simple as it seems. I’m not sure I ever would have believed that myself if I did not start Blue Sky as a solo project which remained such until some rather recent blessings.

2011 was a year of insanity and frustration that was only outweighed by excitement and gratitude for the pay-offs and opportunities and the incredible feedback that kept the clouds at bay… 

Hours of codes and googling and death-threats-to-my-laptop left me at the end of 2011 with the task of The Top List.

I LOST MINE THREE TIMES! Twice thanks to 3rd party apps and the other I had finally deiced to write elsewhere when my PC crashed!

Well today I discovered it auto-saved this whole time  (Very humorous!) and I spent so long on it, the heck if I am not going to share it now.

So here is my Original First Draft of The Top Releases in 2011
