Michael Abayomi, has tagged me in the 7x7 Link Award. I love reading his blog, so if you haven't met Michael, please stop by and say hello.
Now, I've seen other people taking part in this tag, and I've been itching to re-visit some of my older posts too, so I was really happy to be tagged.
The idea of the award is to link to existing blog posts that fall into seven categories...
Most Beautiful Piece
Goodbye 2011. I've linked to this post before, but I think it fits this category, so please forgive me.
Most Helpful Piece
Too hard. I couldn't find anything that fits here, so I'm going to pretend this one doesn't exist!
Most Popular Piece
I'll tumble 4 ya blogfest. Of course, it probably helped that it featured Morten Harket!
Most Controversial Piece
Save Our Libraries Day. I know this doesn't look overtly controversial because there are no comments on the post, but as I used to work in a library I know lots of librarians, and they told me face-to-face how controversial they found it! I hope this doesn't open old wounds...
Most Surprisingly Successful Piece
Spellings and Misspellings. At a time when I was only getting two or three visitors to my blog, this post has had 98 views. I have no idea why - it must have been caught in a popular search term, but I never worked out what term people were using.
Most Underrated Piece
Curious incidents with mirrors. Five page views, no comments... that's pretty underrated, isn't it? Although to be fair, it was before I discovered the fun of joining blogfests and following great people.
Most Pride-Worthy Piece
I'm not sure how to interpret this category, so I'm going for Welcome, where I proudly announce that I have 13 followers.
And now I'm going to choose seven people to tag...
Suze at Analog Breakfast
DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude 2.0
Rena at Doctor Faerie Godmother
Allison at Geek Banter
Rebecca Bradley at Life in Clarity
Teresa F Morgan at The Wittering Woman
Marta Szemik at Marta Szemik
Feel free not to take part if you've done it already or simply don't want to!
What a horrible idea this post was! It's almost 3:00 AM and my eyes are crossing, yet I want to go read them all. If I nod off, I will at least get to the library one. A controversial librarian...that piques my interest!ReplyDelete
Sorry for keeping you awake, Elizabeth! :-) And thanks for your comments on previous uncommented posts - I appreciate it!Delete
Great list, Annalisa! I love your 2011 piece, full of energy and positivity - love it. I, too, feel moved to go over to the library piece but for now, I must write something of my own...ReplyDelete
Thanks Jackie. Whenever I'm feeling a bit low, I read the 2011 post again and always feel so good about my life :-)Delete
Thanks for the shout out and kind words. You've got some very insightful posts in your archives. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Michael. It's funny when you re-read posts, it's almost like you're reading someone else's words.Delete
Thanks for the tag Annalisa. Some interesting pieces in there:)ReplyDelete
Thanks Marta - I look forward to reading yours, if you take part :-)Delete
Glad you got a chance to visit old posts. Sometimes it's fun to see the journey you've taken so far.ReplyDelete
What I realised when I was reading them all is that I have a lot of writer's block!Delete
Its great to get to know you a little better! I remember the I'll Tumble 4 Ya Blogfest. That was fun.ReplyDelete
I loved that Blogfest!Delete
Congrats on your award and to the winners. I did this one too sometimes last season and it was so fun going back through old posts.ReplyDelete
I hadn't realised I'd written so many, to be honest.Delete
thats a fun award. its nice to re read old posts =)ReplyDelete
I can't believe how long ago some of them were - I remember writing them!Delete
Thank you, Annalisa, both for awarding me this honor and for linking to your old posts. I will enjoy looking through them!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to reading your old posts, Suze :-)Delete
I was tagged with this award this week. I'm still trying to put my post together. I don't think I have a "most helpful" post either. It's hard to say which rant would be the most helpful, you know?ReplyDelete
I don't think I'm known for being helpful, just being in need of lots of help :-) I'll watch out for your post.Delete
Funny how our blogging progresses. I remember being pretty excited when I had 13 followers the first time around :)ReplyDelete
13 was huge for me at the time!Delete
Hi Annalisa .. just popped over to your Library post and am now waiting for Spellings and Misspellings to load up ..ReplyDelete
Good mix of posts here .. crumbs I'd hate to choose! Cheers Hilary
It was fun re-reading them, but not easy to choose at all!Delete
Congratulations! I'm looking forward to reading your links once the kids go to bed and the house is finally quiet. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Dana - ooh, I love that quiet house feeling :-)Delete
So like totally awesome that Tumble 4 Ya is your most popular post! :DReplyDelete
It was a totally awesome blogfest Nicki :-)Delete
What a great blog award Annalisa and one I haven't seen before. Loved your answers, (especially ignoring the ones you didn't like!)ReplyDelete
Thank you for nominating me.
I shall have a little look at my stats and pop up a post for tomorrow I think.
Oh good! I'll look forward to your post.Delete
It's scheduled for tomorrow morning :)Delete
Congrats on the award! Those were some great posts you listed. I'll have to come back later to finish them up. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Michael :-)Delete
Congratulations! And I bet you had many helpful posts.ReplyDelete
Helpful is a subjective word :-)Delete
13 followers and now look at you! I'd say you have a lot to be proud of...well, I'm sure there's tons more, but I'm speaking blog world wise!ReplyDelete
Hi Sandra, thanks for the follow!Delete
Wow, quite a blogging journey. Congratulations. I'm going to have to make my way thru the posts you listed.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the award. I'll have to go and read the posts you mentioned.ReplyDelete
Thank you Tania :-)Delete
Very cool! I have not seen the 7x7 before. Great picks!ReplyDelete
It's great looking back at past posts!Delete
Congrats on the award.:) Also nice choices for categories.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the award! My most popular post is an odd one too--I don't understand why it is visited so much.ReplyDelete
Allison (Geek Banter)
Google has a lot to answer for!Delete
Thank you for the recognition...and congrats to you as well. This is the first time I've seen this award, and I must say its rather unique. I might have to bend my rules and take part with this one. :)ReplyDelete
It's fun to look back at old posts too - an excuse to show off your genius :-)Delete
Thanks for the tag, Annalisa. I'll try to get around to this, but I've got lots to do, just returning from holiday and all.ReplyDelete
I hope you had a good time!Delete
Great idea - must be a good spirit lifter as it is so easy to get downhearted blogging...thanks for all those great posts!ReplyDelete
Looking back on old posts is a really interesting thing to do.Delete
