We are in December and for this month i suggest to keep an eye on the site: http://sysadvent.blogspot.com
This site it’s a sysadmin relative of the Perl Advent Calendar: One article for each day of December, ending on the 25th article. With the goals of of sharing, openness, and mentoring, the authors aim to provide great articles about systems administration topics written by fellow sysadmins.
