So every now and then in blogworld it seems that little quizzes and things get sent around. Yesterday Sarah tagged me to choose 7 links to previous posts of mine, so here goes.
First up, THE RULES
Blogger is nominated to take part
Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
And so it goes on!
Now, on to my posts.
Most Beautiful Post;
I love holidays so much, and just looking at photos with blue skies or blue water lifts my mood. Andy always takes fab pictures anyway, so this is kind of cheating as they are his photos, but they were our holidays! (I took the “beautiful” to be literal, as opposed to something about self worth, that kind of beautiful).
Most Popular Post;
My marathon recap post. This showed a massive spike in views- I love seeing how other people get on with their races too.
Most Controversial Post:
It is a toss up between my post about managing weight, or how to run faster (which I posted really recently). Sorry, can’t choose which one! I don’t tend to post controversial things really, maybe I should start?
Most Helpful post:
I like this one– it shows you how to make easy peasy cinnamon raisin bread.
My post about me being a hoarder seemed to prompt a lot of discussion!
Not enough attention;
I did a post in the winter about staying safe when running in the winter evenings. Back then I had less readers, so I suppose that is why. So I am putting it out there again.
I am most proud of my marathon- that was my biggest achievement to date, and something that even last year I never thought would be possible. So my little note to say I had done it, before I wrote and posted the big recap! 🙂
That was fun having a little look back over my blog posts, although my memory is terrible so most of these are very recent posts!
Right, now I need to nominate 5 bloggers, which is always the hard part. Especially as I bet a lot of you have been nominated already. Also, if you do want to do it, then comment on this one and consider yourself tagged 🙂
So, I nominate
Rose @ The Rose Runner
Jessica @ Almost Over Now
Eleanor @ Eating Like a Horse
Lauren @ Powered by Peanut Butter
Rachel @ Rachel’s Delicious Journey
But seriously, if you want to do this then go ahead! I found it fun to look through my old posts 🙂
7 thoughts on “Seven Links”
Oh thank you so much for tagging me even though I am being a Gollum and skulking in the shadows for the foreseeable. I really wanted to have a go at this bloggie ‘task’ but no one had tagged me (I know *insert violin music here*), and I don’t have much to post about any more other than ‘I am sitting around and eating too much…ow, my butt hurts’ so it means a lot 🙂
I totally agree about your most beautiful post: it’s still one of my favourites.
I think if you fancied posting your opinions on something potentially controversial then you shouldn’t be afraid to do so (you always take a very balanced view and never go for ‘shock value’ anyway) but at the same time don’t feel pressured to. Your blog is brill either way.
Jessica you are so funny. For you I bet it will be a brilliant task too, as I have loved reading your old recaps, plus you do some very funny ones (your Zumba one made me laugh so much and I still think about it whenever I see the signs/ fliers/ classes etc). Thanks for that too- I think that the thing with blogging is that I sort of feel like I know people but not really. I would share my opinion with people I know well, but with people I do not know well I always worry about insulting them, or coming across as rude or something, so I tend to be polite and keep my opinions to myself!
Great links. I’ve just read your post about maintaining weight and it’s fantastic. I can relate so much to what you say – working through issues with food is hard.
I loved looking through my old posts – lots of fun 🙂
Thanks Sarah. I thought I was a little garbled, but really I think I am still mixed up and not doing things quite right- you are right working through it is hard.
I love using the 7 links posts to catch up on past posts of new-to-me blogs 🙂
Yeah me too- it is almost a quick start guide to new blogs! 🙂
Thank you so much for the tagging! Looking forward to it 🙂
I loved your marathon recap and there was another run recap too, with a mention of rabbits in it?, which was hilarious!
I’ll look back through all your other posts too; those I remember were really good and I look forward to reading the others 🙂
