Seven Links- a reflection on blogging

I've been blogging over 7 years. SEVEN YEARS?! Whoa... I have to let that sink in. Okay, well my friend Liz posted this meme on her blog and I thought it would be a fun mental exercise to think about the history of my blog and highlight some posts the recent joiners might have missed.

Most Popular Post

"Gumption." I have a handy dandy little widget in the side bar over here that tells me what the most popular post is by hits. I believe this is because people search for pictures of Jude Law and my blog has a ridiculous SEO ranking for him now. :)

Most Beautiful Post

This could be quite subjective. The first one that comes to mind is one my dad wrote when I was very sick- "Sweet Marie."

For things I've written myself, I don't know. I love my "Family Photo Friday" series I did for a while; those are all precious to me.

Most Controversial Post

Haha, oh geez. Um, well there was "Campbellism Exposed!" I'm still one of the highest Google search results for Campbellism, which cracks me up to no end.

Most Helpful Post

"Sandpaper for the Soul" expressed my deepest feelings about Honduras, and Predisan was able to use that for their marketing efforts.

Post Whose Success Surprised You

I ended up getting a lot of people weighing in on my "Why I'd Like a Husband" post, haha.

Most Underrated Post

"Good Guys and Bad Guys." Maybe no one agrees with my assessment. :)

Post You're Most Proud Of

"Only the Lonely" was a major step in vulnerability for me. "The Good Life" was difficult but important for me to write. "The Antibiotic Effect" is still something I think about often.
