My 7 links

*I'm a little late to the party, but I've been seeing this around and it looks fun.**

THE GOAL: To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.


1) Blogger is nominated to take part

2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 2 link(s) for each category.

3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.

4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers

5) And so it goes on!

And here are my 7 links.

Most Beautiful: I have a couple that have some really pretty pictures.  Hiking some happy trails and enjoying the Lake Michigan shoreline in Wisconsin.
Most Popular: Not sure how to measure this.  By pageviews, it was where I let my insecurities shine in I'm just going to keep this to myself . By comments, it was my LaCrosse Marathon post.

Most Helpful: Hmmm....this could be helpful, I guess, but the people who need to hear it wouldn't be listening anyway. And now a break from our regularly scheduled programming...

Surprise Success: My post about getting my butt kicked in a local criterium got a lot of comments, and you all made me feel a lot better about myself because that race really had me feeling down. So thanks. :) And boy, oh boy, did people enjoy my victory over the Manly Runner.
Most Proud: Since the marathon post is already mentioned, my other post where I'm most proud of myself is about The Deuce. But my kids also gave me a lot to be proud of in May.
Most Controversial: This one isn't really controversial, but it's definitely uncomfortably honest and may have never actually been read before.  I've been blogging for five years or so, and I love you more, orignially posted on the now-defunct yahoo360, is from April of 2006.
Not Enough Attention: Probably my post about my husband combines his love for Survivor with his quest to get the kids in our family active or my bike ride along the Katy Trail


  1. I can't believe your hike up Mt. Whitney with a cooler on your head wasn't your most proud post!! I'm not sure what could be more moving than that!! ;)

    I would have a hard time doing this...I'm glad I was never tagged!!

  2. Nice links! I actually read and re-read all of them just now. I haven't read many of your older posts. Good stuff!

  3. Haha Jill!
    Looks like I've got some reading to do!

  4. I just came across your blog, and I love the 7 link posts. It's a great intro.

  5. Interesting list. Indeed I haven't read some posts.
    Beautiful post with many subjects.

  6. Your 'I Love You More' post is wonderful. I think you are spot on with it.

  7. I like the most helpful one. I hadn't seen that one.

    I LOVED I love you more. What an honest write up. And I also love Jodi Picoult. I went to one of her author talks once.

    And that Survivor thing. I have no words.

  8. And now I'm responding to your comment on my post. We totally talked today about how this made us think of the poor students sitting there totally checked out and how we had to remember it. Whew. There is a run on sentence for you.
