TT job search advice aggregator

I only started this blog in 2009, and what I didn't realize until 2010 was that a whole bunch of super useful TT search advice-related posts were written in 2007 and 2008 by some of your favorite faculty bloggers. What better place to put all that great advice together than a blog about finding a TT job?

Below is what immediately came to mind. Read it. Learn it. It should keep you busy for a while, but this is by no means exhaustive--I'll keep updating as I come across more, so if you know of a post that you think belongs here, by all means put a link in the comments and I'll add it in.  And for pete's sake, don't be shy about letting me know about a post you've written yourself!

Best of luck to everyone on the TT job market!
