My 7 Links

On Sunday after M left, I started to read some blogs to distract me from the fact that I missed him already. And to my pleasant surprise, the wonderful Leigh from All You Need is Love tagged me for the favorite 7 posts.

The details mean I link to a post of my own for each of the categories:
  • 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

I feel like I haven't written quite enough posts to fall into all of these categories yet, but I will give it my best shot! Then I get to nominate five bloggers to share their 7 links, and then the chain continues. Ready?

Most Beautiful Post: Happy Birthday, Mom! This was a small tribute to how much I appreciate and look up to my mom.

Most Popular Post: Lists Galore Technically this is not a post, however I have gotten so many views of this and comments, I thought I would consider it my most popular. I'm currently working on my 24 Before 24 list.

Most Helpful Post:  #BeGrateful This was a short post that actually linked to another blogger's post that reminded me about how important it is to be grateful.

Surprisingly Successful Post: Simple Girl, Simple Hair I never would have thought that blogging about my haircut would get me so many pageviews!

Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved Post: Let's Make a Change This post is about another blogger who is raising money for scholarships to help students pay for their first year of college. It's a cause dear to her heart, and I really hope that more people signed up and are helping to raise money.

Most Proud of Post: NYRR Mini 10K 2011 I guess this could be the post I'm most proud of...for now. Running the race and having M and family there to support me made me feel so proud. So getting to share that with the blog world only added to how good the race made me feel.

For this award, I'm nominating:

If you've been nominated, I'd love for you to play along! And if you haven't already, go check out their blogs. Otherwise, have a very happy Thursday and go enter my Book-It-Forward Giveaway!

Thanks Amandaaaa! I'm excited to do this soon! Yep, time for you to get an iphone girlie! Mr. C and I may or may not (definitely did) have face-timed each other in the living room the other day... we were both in the same room HAHA and it echoed because we were so close. We are such losers.
