I got tagged by a couple of people for my "7 Links" post! Thanks, friends! Without further ado!
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.
- 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!
- We’ll be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on our blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links
Most Popular: By far, my most popular post is my 2010 Nike Women’s Half Marathon recap. People find my blog everyday by searching for pictures of the coveted Tiffany’s Necklace you get instead of a medal! I’ve run the race 6 times and this year, I’m coming back for the 7th!
Most Beautiful: I’m a little biased, but I’m going to have to go with my wedding posts. Partly because the pictures come from a professional photographer, and partly because I was in the best shape of my life and the happiest I’ve ever been. I love my pictures!
Most Controversial: I was so nervous to post about my religious beliefs (or lack thereof). At first I was paranoid I was going to offend someone by writing it, but in the end, I realized that at the very least, maybe it would spark a good discussion.
Most Helpful: Um… That’s hard. I don’t know, maybe the post where I discuss the woes of shin splints? I sympathize with anyone who has them, so hopefully my tips will help someone else cope with them!
Surprise Success: My "How to Walk to Work" post was fun to write and people seemed to be interested in it. I actually wasn’t expecting that. Hooray!
Not Enough Attention: Truthfully, I don’t write a lot of posts geared towards the greater good of mankind. I’m mostly a "slice of life" blogger, and I use it as a public journal of sorts. But if I had to choose a post that I think is a fun read, I’d say my Catalina Island hike fits the bill. I actually wrote this post before I even had a blog, and it makes me smile.
Most Proud: This is actually a tie!
1.) I’m proud of my Travel Links. Every time I am feeling ungrateful or sad, I look at this page and it reminds me how many amazing opportunities I’ve had over the years. Traveling is so fulfilling to me. I am so lucky to have married a man who shares my passion. I hope this list continues to grow!
2.) And of course I’m super proud of running the Boston Marathon! (That link compiles all my Boston Marathon Posts together). Boston to me is the pinnacle of marathon running and I am so proud that I was able to finish. I was in the back of the pack, but I finished with a bigger smile on my face than any of the thousands of people in front of me. I ran with the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team as a way to celebrate being 10 Years Cancer-Free!!
And now… Here are the blogs that I tag (even though I’m probably one of the last people to do this "7 Links" post!)
- Alicia @ AliciaRuns
- Erika @ HereOThere
- Sarah @ GagaDiaries
- Gubbi of Arabia (I just love this girl’s blog!)
- And anyone else who wants to share! Let’s see it!
