7 links

I try to pretend I don’t care about the rest of the blog world (or blogosphere as many call it) but I am frankly pretty psyched that Clare nominated me to do the 7 links post that has been going around for a few weeks now.  Thanks Clare!

The Rules

1. Blogger is nominated to take part

2. Blogger published his/her 7 links on his/her blog

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

4. These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 bloggers

5. And so on and so forth!

I will allow myself more than one post per category—I think that’s okay.

Most Beautiful

My save the dates.  Serious love of stationery happening here.

Community.  I feel like I did a good job writing this one, and it makes me tear up a bit.

Most Popular

Orchestra auditions for non-musicians.  As much as I want this blog to be about ME, people in the music world loved this post.

My next most popular blog was the one about  my engagement.  A different sort of bling.

I was featured on Skinnyrunner’s Cat Lady blogs and had this post up: Cat Lady

Most Controversial

Well, the most popular post was also most controversial.

Wordy Wednesday had a few comments too regarding women’s rights and how women should act.

Most Helpful

I have written a variety of helpful posts, depending on what you are looking for.

Obviously (not to beat a dead horse) my post on orchestra auditions could be helpful if that’s what you are doing.

Patience is controlled frustration.

Thoughts on Personal Training

Post Whose Success Surprised You

I was a bit surprised by the scope of the success of the orchestra auditions post, but I knew people would like it.

Other than that…nothing really!

Post that didn’t receive enough success

I generally write assuming no one will read it, so the lack of success is absolutely no surprise.  Nonetheless, you should read the following:

If it isn’t posted on the internet, has it really happened?

Grand Adventure

Post You’re Most Proud Of

Lewis and Clark.  My first race!

Running is always a good idea.  I’m not a mantra person, but I felt great writing this post.

I was thinking the categories don’t really fit my blog, what about, “funniest post,” “most narcissistic post,” “post with the most cat pictures,” or “most inspirational?”  Maybe I should start my own 7 links post…

Let me tag some people then (don’t feel obligated, and sorry if you have already done it!):
