I’m sure you’ve seen this 7 links post that’s been going around the blogosphere, but if you’ve been hiding under a rock for a while, here’s the deal:
To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.
1) Blogger is nominated to take part
2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
5) And so it goes on!
6) We’ll be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on our blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links
Most Beautiful – Once Upon a Time I Ran A Marathon. This was hard for me to write. I ran a marathon once (obviously from the title) and it wasn’t the best experience. I didn’t do very well time-wise and I got sick after and it took me a long time to come to terms with how I felt about the experience and be proud of myself for doing it.
Most Popular – This is just in terms of google searches, but I get the most searches for diet coke addiction and for sweet potato tots. (I really need to come up with a sweet potato tot recipe because people really, really want one. It comes up in my search terms almost every single day.)
Most Controversial – I don’t really have many controversial posts. I tend to just blog about my life and, well, it’s not very controversial, I suppose. There are also certain things that I just don’t really talk about on the blog. The one post that comes to mind, however, was when I decided to weigh myself. I wouldn’t say that was a controversial thing in itself, but people have some strong opinions for and against the scale.
Most Helpful – I like to think that I introduced a lot of people to the awesomeness that is Scoutmob.
Surprise Success – Apparently, a lot of people search for Eric Northman. I think that they’re probably disappointed when they come across my post that just shows a picture of him and is me mostly whining about having a cold, but it’s gotten a lot of page views.
Not Enough Attention – I honestly am shocked that people even read my blog, so I can’t come up with something that didn’t get enough attention.
Most Proud – I was really proud of myself for climbing over the Great Warrior Wall and not dying during the Warrior Dash. I was really, really scared of that wall and froze on it for a while, but I did it.
And now I get to tag five people.
