A trip down memory lane – my 7 links

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:

  1. Most Popular Post
  2. Most Controversial Post
  3. Most Helpful Post
  4. Most Beautiful Post
  5. Most Surprisingly Successful Post
  6. Most Under Rated Post
  7. 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. 😀

My folks and my beanie


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.

Pears in red wine

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. 😀
