You may have already come across the 7 Links Challenge by now. The premise is simple – to highlight 7 past posts in different categories and share a little about why you chose each one. Problogger and TripBase have both challenged their readers to take part in the project and it has been going around the internet for some time.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had great fun reading some of my favorite blogs as they accepted and answered the 7 Links Challenge. It’s an interesting exercise in self-examination, offering readers a look into how each blogger views her/his own work. I found the challenge fascinating and discovered many wonderful posts that I had missed.
My friend Jeanne at Cook Sister nominated me when she did her retrospective which means it’s now my turn to take part in the challenge.
- Blogger is nominated.
- Blogger posts his/her 7 links – 1 link for each category.
- Blogger nominates 5 more bloggers to take part.
- These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 bloggers.
- And so on and so on….
Not being one to leave well enough alone, I took the liberty of adapting the 7 links just a bit. As there were two versions of categories floating around I combined the two and added my two cents.
- Your most searched post.
- A post which had a great discussion or response.
- A post you enjoyed writing the most.
- Your most helpful post.
- A post the success of which surprised you.
- Your most beautiful post.
- A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved.
This week I will be sharing my 7 links starting today with #1: Your most searched post.
#1 Most Searched for Post – Fresh Mint Tea | A Nice Cuppa
This is a post that continues to get consistent views through search engines. In it I shared my nightly ritual of making a fresh herbal tea, most often mint.
As I said in the post, it’s a vital moment of calm and comfort before turning in for the night. It makes me smile to think of everyone out there who may be ending their days in the very same way – with a hot cup of herbal tea.
If anyone else has taken part in the 7 Link Challenge, please post links to your own entries in the comments so we can all take a look.
