Joanne over at Fifteen Spatulas was kind enough to tag me in the 7 links challenge yesterday. Thanks again Joanne. 🙂
I was previously tagged by Anna over at The Hospitality Guru, so this is a repost of my 7 links.
The purpose of the challenge is to select posts from 7 categories from your blog and invite other bloggers to do the same.
The 7 categories are:
- Most Popular Post
- Most Controversial Post
- Most Helpful Post
- Most Beautiful Post
- Most Surprisingly Successful Post
- Most Under Rated Post
- Most Proud of Post
This is a great way to unite bloggers from all over the globe and to re-introduce a few old and forgotten posts which may not have received any recognition from when we were still newby bloggers.
My 7 are:
1. Most Popular Post
I am taking the popularity of this post from the number of views and not number of comments – my normal daily views TRIPLED for this post. 😀
2. Most Controversial Post
I was a little worried about posting this one, but think that it was received better than what I originally anticipated.
3. Most Helpful Post
Undoubtedly, this would have to be my post on Abbreviations and Conversions. This really is a concise list of helpful info.
4. Most Beautiful Post
I think this would have to be the post a friend of mine in Mauritius photographed for me.
5. Most Surprisingly Successful Post
Not sure how to quantify the successful part but I guess I would have to say my, Getting to know you more post where I asked questions to help us learn more about each others culinary likes and dislikes and 5 fellow bloggers were kind enough to share in the fun. I have compiled another fun post, which I will share next week with links to the other bloggers answers.
Getting to know more about each other
6. Most Under Rated Post
I am not sure if I am supposed to take this from my blog stats or in my opinion, so in my opinion and just because this is one of my favourite recipes, it would have to be my post on Carrot Cake Cupcakes.
7. Most Proud of Post
Aah, there is a slight catch with this one as I have not done the post yet – I will soon, I promise, and just to whet your appetite a little… we have printed a few copies of my book to sell – YAY! These will be “limited-edition” books as when we do a reprint, we will be changing the format slightly and moving away from a spiral bind to a standard “perfect-bind” oh and we will also have it available as an e-book. 😀
—oh, i loved the post about your mommy& daddy. 🙂 That was my fave.
This is a cool Idea….Yes, I shall do this on my next post. (for sure.)
How kind of you to mention my name.—You are beautiful….and not just because your food is SO good either. xxx
Kim, thank you for your kind words. I can’t wait to read your 7 links – enjoy putting them together. Have a happy week. 🙂 xo
Oh yay!!! I’m such a fan of this 7 links, and I adored your red wine pears. So pretty. Can’t wait for the cookbook lovely. Your a champion. I’m truly blessed to be able to hang out with amazing people. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Xxx
Anna, thank you for thinking of me for the 7 links; it was great fun. Our weekend was great even though Pete left yesterday again for another business trip. Have a happy week friend. 🙂 xo
thank you for sharing and paying it forward! I would love to know how you did the e-book?! And of course I want to order a first edition xxxx
Hi Tandy. We are still in the process of doing the e-book – quite a challenge for me – we are going to use 3 formats – a standard PDF, a Mobi format for Kindle and EPub for all other readers – hope that made sense. Thank you so much for placing an order – my first official order! YAY! This is all very exciting. Have a happy week. 🙂 xo
Hi Mandy, Please make sure you keep a copy of your book for me! And I would love it if you signed it for me too!
Hi Geoff, thanks for stopping by. I have reserved a copy for you. 🙂 Hey, you are going to be world famous as your name is in print in the book too. Have a happy week. 🙂
Aaah – good to see some posts that I missed! And as you know, I loved the beanie post 🙂
Hi Tanya, glad you can catch up on some that you missed. 🙂 It has been so cold that my beanie has come into good use the last couple of weeks. Have a happy week. 🙂
I guess most of your posts are helpful specially your how to’s and conversions. I always remember your blog when I need something like those.
Raymund, thank you so much for such a lovely compliment. I am so pleased that my how to’s and conversions are so helpful. Have a happy week. 🙂
Love this idea and challenge that is floating around! I am going to do my 7 links on wed i think. The post on your mom and dad is wonderful and I love the pears in red wine sauce
I am looking forward to reading your 7 and thanks for the lovely compliments. Have a happy week. 🙂
I love reading these posts to get an idea of what each blogger thinks of her/his own work. I loved your post about your parents and I, too, would have thought that the the vegetarian depiction would have created some controversy.Thank you for including me in your list and I’ll get right to work on it. Enjoy your week, Mandy!
HI ChgoJohn, thank you for participating – it is great fun and I am looking forward to your 7. Have a happy day. 🙂
Wonderful post Mandy! I agree on the conversions being helpful and the chart made me chuckle. You picked some great bloggers to forward it to.
Thanks very much Greg. Have a happy week. 🙂
Great list and congratulations on the e-book! What a great accomplishment! I love the pear pics and I’m going to go back and read the conversion one. I also find your women’s home companion cookbook ones very helpful. 🙂
Thanks so much Krsity – I hope you are feeling better. I will do another Woman’s Home post soon. Have a happy week. 🙂
Thanks for tagging me 🙂
I am looking forward to seeing your 7. Have a happy evening. 🙂 xo

Thanks so much Amanda! I almost think of an excuse to make them. 😉 Have a happy week. 🙂
I love your carrot cupcake post 🙂
Thanks so much Tes. Have a happy week. 🙂
Oh, you tagged me :D, you naughty girl!
I think your carrot cupcakes look lovely. Sometimes I am really surprised at what gets loads of comments and what doesn’t. I try not to let it guide me though. I try to keep my blog about what I want not about what I think other people want.
Hi HH – I am looking forward to reading your 7 links – bet there will be some fabulous stuff I haven’t read yet. Have a happy evening. 🙂
Wow, am I glad I found you.. now I am going to go back and study each of your 7. 7 is such a great number! But I am so recently begun i am not sure i even have seven pages that would cut it.. am still learning the ropes really and Love Blog World.
