7 x 7

April 27, 2012


Last week while I was out of town (more about that next week), Danielle at A Work in Progress tagged me with the 7 x 7 link award. So while I’m unpacking and organizing my photos and doing laundry, I’ll stop for a minute to complete this meme. Here are the instructions:

1. Tell everyone something about yourself that nobody else knows.
2. Link to a post you think fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, Most Pride-worthy Piece.
3. Pass this on to seven fellow bloggers.

1. Most of the bloggers are skipping this one, and there’s not much that nobody else knows (that I care to reveal, anyway!), but let me think… how about: though I don’t know if my shoulder tendonitis would permit it, I would like to learn how to fence—en garde!

2. Posts for the following categories:
Most Beautiful Piece: Personally, I like the dreamy feel of After the Rain.

Most Helpful Piece: The Good Enough Blog Post.

Most Popular Piece: Judging by number of comments, I’d say So Much More has been the most popular. 

Most Controversial Piece: I don’t “do” controversial—but maybe this one comes close? 

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: The reading challenge posts last year here and here seemed to attract a lot of interest and comments.

Most Underrated Piece: Life Lessons from a Panda.  Not everyone likes to take their life lessons from cartoons…

Most Pride-worthy Piece: Discovery: Ellen Glasgow. I loved reading Barren Ground and researching Glasgow, and was proud of how this piece turned out.

I had fun reviewing nearly two and a half years of posts. Do you agree with my choices?

The seven bloggers I tag are:

Elizabeth at More to Love

Kathy at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy

Michelle at A Reader’s Footprints

Sage at The Path of Possibility

Kelly at Red and the Peanut

Elizabeth at A Nature Art Journal

Don’t worry if you don’t want to play, and if you’re not mentioned and this meme sounds fun to you, consider yourself tagged also!

  1. Thanks so much for joining in--it's fun to look back on posts and remember what I was thinking about not so long ago. I don't do controversial either and couldn't find a post that would work (but maybe that's a good thing really?). I loved your 'good enough' post (and should really still keep it in mind as I am often plagued by thoughts of unhappiness with things I do), as well as the Glasgow post! I'm glad I (however inadvertently...) turned you on to Susanna Kearsley, as I love her books, though I still haven't read Shadowy Horses yet (it's on my reading pile, though). And now I get to go back and read the posts I missed (love the photos from New Orleans by the ay). Glad you're back. I've been sort of away, too, but only away from being online. I'm hoping to be able to catch up on reading and be a more regular visitor again soon!

  2. Thank you, Danielle, for tagging me. It was a fun little project. I hope you enjoy reading through the old posts. It's tough keeping up with all the interesting things to read online as well as the books and art projects or needlework projects that we also enjoy. Sometimes life can be a little too full!

  3. You didn't happen to take a trip to Frisco did you? I wondered what had happened at any rate as your posting seemed to be taking a break. Welcome back.

  4. As a matter of fact, I did! I'll be posting about it this week.

  5. Gee - I AM behind! Thanks for tagging me. What an interesting exercise - and I like your choices!
