I decided it would be a good idea to keep a record of all my formal written pieces and articles on TAY, TAYClassic, and my own personal Kinja blog. Here you will find links to each piece I have written.

Think of this as my blog’s table of contents if you will. It’s the fastest way to find any of my formal writing here without having to deal with digging through all my random posts and such.
