Day 323 or Seven Link Challenge

Inspired by Tesa over at 2 Wired 2 Tired (a fabulous blog -- if you've not checked her out, go here now!), I checked out ProBlogger who was hosting a fabulous 7 Link Challenge. It is an opportunity to look back at your blog as a whole and see what stands out. Think of it as a flashback episode on a sit-com. Of course, the Simpsons would always slyly slam their own flashback shows but I am neither animated nor a part of the most successful animated series ever so I will not slam. I will celebrate. Because you folks know how I love a party!

So here are the prompts --

1. Your first post -- A start on this journey

2. A post you enjoyed writing the most -- A reflection on a sweet moment of mommyhood

3. A post which had a great discussion -- This was an early post that showed me just how lovely fellow bloggers can be

4. A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written -- So many to choose from but I went with one of my favorite bloggers in the world -- Unknown Mami and her unique look at how her mom tended to her health

5. A post with a title that you are proud of -- A look at two ladies in my life at very different places

6. A post that you wish more people had read -- Just because I love, Love, LOVE this charity sooo much

7. Your most visited post ever -- Things I said that I swore I wouldn't

So that's 38 and Growing at a glance. It was fun to look back at where I've been and how much this blog has grown. Thanks to Problogger for the walk down memory lane. (BTW, not sure how I went almost a year blogging without visiting you but I will definitely be back!)

Good idea! I've heard (read) rumblings of the problogger challenge but never considered myself much of a pro. :) There are a lot of good ideas though for amateurs though.

Let me say that I've loved you since I first joined you on your journey.

ps. I am not implying that you aren't a pro-blogger. xoxo

What a fun idea for a post!!! I totally loved your mommy moment with your daughter! It's moments like that, just sitting around the kitchen and mixing up a batch of muffins, that make me appreciate motherhood that much more!

Wasn't this post so much fun? I'm glad you did it too, it was such a great look back and a way to get those posts that had very little exposure in those early days a little light to shine on them.
