My 7 Links

Hi guys!  So my friend Katie at Legally Fit invited me to participate in the 7 Links challenge.


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 link 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!

6) We’ll be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on our blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links

Most Beautiful

Probably A Letter, a post I did during my 30 Day Blog Challenge, in which I posted a picture and a letter.  I wrote my letter to my Grandma who passed away almost 5 years ago. 

Most Popular
9 Weeks  (comments on the page)

This was of course my recent miscarriage post, and it's the most comments on a post I have ever had.  I was shocked at the outpouring of love and support I felt from your comments.  A lot of you also emailed me, texted me, and sent cards.  Thank you all so so much for being there for me at a really hard time.

Welcome to Charlotte Bloggie Brunch!  (Page Hits)

I'm pretty sure this was due to some traffic from Caitlin's blog, but I think also because it is the post that has the recipe for my awesome Blueberry Pie.  Yes, it's famous all over the web.  Make it!

Most Controversial

CAL/UAL Merger

This post was an article about the Continental and United airline merger and my take on it.  For all my healthy living followers, this one was probably skipped/missed, since it was kind of before I blogged more about healthy living.  This is going back to my blog "roots" and was written at a time when I was pretty fired up about the airline industry and how it was affecting my furloughed husband.  I got a lot of traffic on this post based on searches about the impending merger, and if you read through the comments, I had people telling me to tell my husband to find a new career and a bunch of United pilots giving me some perspective on their side.  I actually ended up emailing/keeping in touch with one of them and he's a very nice guy that really helped me to see their side of things.  The merger is still happening and we still don't know how it's all going to play out, but for now, my husband is back flying for his airline, and I just hope his career remains stable.

Most Helpful

Probably my two running posts:

Q & A on Running  I talk about my history of running and gave some advice on how to get into running.

More on Running  I talk more about why I run, and how to make it more enjoyable.

Surprise Success

Hip Flexor Woes (page hits)

Apparently a lot of people have hip flexor issues, and found my blog by googling this!  This post was only about a week out from my marathon and I was pretty freaked out that I would have issues running my marathon because of hip flexor pain.  Thankfully, come marathon day, I was golden and did not have any problems!

Also,  Trying to Conceive Blues (comments/feedback) A lot of you related to my struggles with trying to conceive.  I got a lot of comments and feedback on this and it made me feel so much better about how I was feeling at the time.

Not Enough Attention

13.1  My first half marathon post hardly got any comments!  I was pretty bummed about that after working so hard for it!  You can still comment on how awesome I did.  I don't mind... :)

Most Proud

I Ran The Charleston Marathon!

Definitely my marathon recap!  I worked so hard for that medal (which by the way, I was given the wrong one, if you read the recap!)  It's one of my most proud moments in life that I ran a marathon, and I loved training for, running, and blogging about the whole experience :)

Ok, I nominate:

Have at it girls!  :)

Fun! The letter to your grandmother is beautiful.

FYI, I tried to click on your half mary link- I think it's broken!

Oh goodness, the pressure is on now. I'm happy if just one person reads my posts. Now I gotta look at my stats, lol.

Thanks for the nomination. I just did mine.
