Lucky 7, Lucky You!

So I've been tagged by Jenn from Much to My Delight to share my Top 7 Posts.  I haven't been blogging much these days but this game of tag was the perfect opportunity to jump back into the mix. I have to admit, it was fun to take a look back again.

What is this about: 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.

So without further adieu, here we go for a walk down memory lane...

My Most Beautiful Post is a tie between SNAPSHOT and PILLOW TALK. To me, the "picture" is worth a thousand words.
My Most Popular Post is HEMINGWAY's GREAT WHITE BULL. The homage and tag to Hemingway brings readers in, the funky paper art gets them looking around and coming back.

I don't really have a controversial side but if I had to pick My Most Controversial Post it would be my first post, OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS WRITING I WILL GO. It's my longest post and in some respects, the most revealing about myself. Sharing my "lost year" might have seemed a bit much for my first foray into blogging but I don't regret the choice at all. There was something very liberating in writing it.

My Most Helpful Post would be during the month of April when I spotlighted National Poetry Month. It was a fun endeavor to explore the many sides of poetry in words, music and photographs. It also started a lot of dialogue and gave me an introducation with other bloggers who wanted to share their favorite poems too.

The Post Whose Success Surprised Me The Most would have to be KTCHEN CONFESSIONAL. I began this post with the intention of sharing some recipes but wound up discovering a little something more about how I fill my kitchen space. Personally, this was a fun post to discover but it's also been nice to see how much it resonated with readers.

The Post Who Didn't Get The Attention It Deserved would have to be the GIRL MEETS WORLD series. These posts totally amuse, maybe not so much.
The Post I Am Most Proud Of is YOU ARE HERE PT 1 and PT2. Again, this was one of those writing experiences where you begin in one place, admittedly lost and discover a happy surprise in the took a bit of writing but well worth the effort!

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) The site Trip Base be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on their blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links

Now to pass along the baton I nominate the following bloggers...

Maryanne at A Writer's Notepad
Melissa at Inspiration and Rough Drafts

Keep this train chuggin!
