Who are you? My 7 links

So thanks to Selma over at Crazy Little World of Mine for tagging me in this fun 7 Links game ♥ It's taken me about a month to finally get around to posting my links. But, hey. That's life, right? So without further ado, here are my 7 links...

1) Most Beautiful

I'm going to say this is tie between two of my Mother's Day Week posts. The one for my mom & the one for my sister. I think they're beautiful posts because they're about beautiful people. And they are about my love for two of the most amazing women in my life.

2) Most Popular

My 3 giveaway posts have the most comments & most hits, but as far as post I've written goes, the most popular was the first Mother's Day Week post, where I highlighted my three favorite blogger mommas: Danielle from Sometimes Sweet, Megan from honey We're Home & Joanna from A Cup of Jo. It had so many hits because Danielle actually mentioned the post over on her blog!

I also was really ecstatic, because all 3 ladies stopped by and left comments. ♥

thank to this lady ♥

3) Most Controversial

While no one actually left a comment, the most controversial topic I blogged about was Michael Moore's "America is NOT Broke" speech during the Wisconsin Protests this past winter. I rarely take a political stance here, because that's not why I started this blog, but I was moved to write something. So I did.

I'm still nervous that that particular post is out there on the web, but I'm keeping it up.

4) Most Helpful

The most helpful to me were the Reverb 10 Posts I wrote all last December, counting down to the new year. Those posts were the first time I'd joined in a blog project with others, and it was such good practice for joining a community of bloggers. I was introduced to so many people, and it showed me the potential of the blog community!

Plus, that's how I fell in love with writing again.

reflection is good for the soul

5) Post whose success surprised you

The first post I had that received more than 20 hits was a biopic I wrote about a local baker, Abbey, from Blue Baker in College Station, which I called Blue Baker's Baker. I was lucky enough to have the post linked on Blue Baker's Facebook page, and as a result it is still in the top 10 of my post popular posts (as far as page views are concerned). It was a total surprise that people would read what I had to post!

6) Post you feel didn't get the attention it deserved

One of my favorite stories I ever shared here was My Favorite Rock Star Moment. In it, I told the tale of how a member of The Decemberists made fun of me while I was getting his signature at Austin City Limits Musical Festival. I think the story is hilarious & awesome, but I guess no one else did :-(

Can't win them all, I guess?

7) Post you are most proud of

The post I go back to just to look at over & over is The Man I Love. I went back through all the pictures C & I have taken over the past 7 years and put up a picture timeline of us growing up together. I love the goofy faces and fond memories. I love seeing how we've evolved together over the years. I'm most proud of the post because it helps me fall just a little more in love with C every time I see our past ♥

one of my favorite pictures of us. so young!!
