You probably went through withdrawal last week because Chad’s Choices was on hiatus, but lucky for you, it’s back. Take a look below at great people and content from the DEN Community. If you’re not familiar with Chad’s Choices from the Community, it is designed to highlight the DEN Community in a variety of ways. You’ll find a few blog posts and resources that were shared by a DEN member on Twitter. Keep in mind, while others may have also shared the same post/article, I saw it posted by the person I’m noting below. Forgive me if I’m not giving credit to the person who first posted it. In addition, you’ll find a few blogs by DEN members and members from community to follow on Twitter. Some of the people listed are veteran DEN members while others are new to the community. Lastly, I’d like to share a DEN Person of Interest.
