Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
This shouldn’t take you long to do – don’t over-think it! (Note– that’s easy for them to say.)
– Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post
– Your most helpful post
– A post whose success surprised you
– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of
Now this where it gets impossible. I don’t have posts in some of those categories. I’m going to have to get more controversial and more helpful fast. But here goes:
I think my most beautiful post was Unfinished Business. It is also the one I am most proud of. Can I do that? Put the same post in two categories?
I have no idea what my most popular post was. According to site stats, my busiest day was March 3, 2011, and the most visited post that day was “Lies I Tell You– Lies!” And that’s not even a post about dogs! March was my busiest month since I started blogging– it’s all been downhill from there. 😦
As I said, I don’t have a controversial post. While I am very opinionated, I hate arguments. I’d be nauseous if I got a lot of nasty comments telling me what an idiot I was. So few people read this blog, I’m afraid of losing those who do. But maybe if I was more controversial, I could increase readership. Who knows? So if anyone wants to troll through my archives and find a post that fits the bill, feel free. 🙂
I also haven’t been particularly helpful. I suppose the only post I have that falls into the “helpful” category is this post from January about Fairy Dogparents, an organization in Massachusetts that helps people whose financial situation has gone south continue to care for their pets. I love this organization because it’s not just about the dogs, it’s about people too.
As for the post whose success surprised me… I don’t have a post that successful. I think my most successful post has about a dozen comments, including my own. Again, if any readers want to nominate their favourites, go for it. (You know, I gotta stop whining about lack of readership. Between April and June, I put up a total of five posts. You can’t complain about lack of readers if you give them nothing to read.)
A post that didn’t get the attention it deserved? For those concerned about puppy mills and dog over-population, try Puppies for Sale. For animal rescue advocates in general, I would suggest And Now For Something Completely Different.
And if I can’t nominate Unfinished Business again for the post I’m most proud of, I’ll choose Relationships, which is basically the same theme and got a lot of positive comments. That thrilled me; I was nervous putting it out there, and was so relieved when others seemed to like it too.
Now I’m supposed to nominate five more bloggers. I hate doing that. First of all, by the time this reaches me, all my friends have already done it. And one of my favourite blogs, 365 Degrees, Photos from Each Day, is just pictures– she’s not helpful or controversial, she’s just gorgeous. So I’m weasling out and only passing it on to two bloggers: Georgia Little Pea of Little Dogs on Long Leashes, and Hadassah Sabo Milner of In The Pink. Good luck with it, ladies!
