My 7 Links

Elizabeth at Running For Bling nominated me some time ago to list my 7 links. The goal was 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. I think this "endeavor" is over because this tag was from some time back...so I'm not going to tag anyone, but feel free to bring some of your posts back to the light of day along with me. Because I don't have 8 million hours to work on this post, I have to admit I did not go back very far in my archives to do this...BUT HERE GOES>>>>

Most Beautiful: Picture wise, I would have to go with my hike with Dad and Bro up Mount St. Helens.

Most Popular: Based on comments, my most popular post proves you guys like to see me suffer in a Brutal way.

Most Controversial: I have to say this broke my heart a little lot. The day I lost the most followers was a day Michael and I shared our faith a little more on his birthday post.

Most Helpful: I'm not sure how helpful I am, but I think I got some people thinking about working on their tire changing skills when I whipped out this  2:48 Baby post.

Surprise Success: How much fun I've had doing Monday Morning Dance Party with you all!

Not Enough Attention: My dancing girl Here and definitely the second video Here.

Most Proud: Well, it has to be when I shared the day I realized I had a Butt Butt.
Actually it was probably my first Half Marathon earlier this year in Eugene. I was so happy to be running again....  Or having Mai follow in Mama's footsteps Here.

Happy Tuesday!!!

excited to go back and read some of these! I still need to do this post. Jess tagged me a looong time ago. I feel bad. I just have not had any blogging mojo. Feeling uninspired.

Great minds post the same post on the same day! Eugene was a half to be proud of, I agree.

I'm looking forward to checking out your links, especially your controversial one. Faith is always so touchy, and so interesting. Even if I don't agree with you, I can't see unfollowing you...I like the Julie I read. :)

Ohhh I've got lots of reading to do!!

Kate said...

Ok, so I already read that post when you posted it. It surprises me that it bothered people, especially to the point where they would unfollow. Anyway, clearly I'm still here, and isn't that what really matters? Lol

That's interesting about sharing your faith. I'm in a constant struggle with not becoming "too preachy", but not backing down from what I believe. It seems most people don't want to hear it for some reason. I remember the post and commented on it - I thought it was awesome!

Julie said...

@Kate - HA! Yes! That is what matters: YOU! You are AWESOME!
I think it bothered me more because it was a day I was grieving my cousin and I was already in kind of a sad place missing him. I don't follow my stats much and usually wouldn't have noticed such a thing, but they were dropping like flies. It was really weird.

@Jim - Thanks <3

How fun! What a great idea to go back and revisit some old posts!

I like these trips down memory lane

Raina said...

Eugene was fun-- well it was fun MEETING all of you :) I'll never forget our date :))

The whole faith-based blog posts thing- I never lose anyone for those. I think it's because they never were reading my posts to begin with- or not officially "following" :). I am a little sensitive though and it would bug me to death. That's why I removed my followers box! Ha.

Love the dance party posts! They are a great regular and have been a blast from the past at times.

Jill said...

This is a great idea (I'm so glad I wasn't tagged though - haha).

I'm glad I stumbled on to your blog just in time for your 7 links! I'm going to go read your links!

It's fun to look back on some of these and others I have missed. I think my favorite was the Mt. St. Helens one. I just remembered I was tagged for this too and have not done it. I'm glad you said it took you awhile.

P said...

I've never figured out when or why I lose followers. I try not to take it personally, but of course I do.
Holy crap that Butt Butt post was hilarious!!! You "crack" me up! :)

greekmelie said...

I hadn't read many of those posts and I am glad I did now. Thanks for sharing!

Johann said...

Nice! I haven't read all your posts so this was great.

Terzah said...

It was so fun to find you--thanks for your comment on my blog, too. I'm glad there's another little girl out there with Ruth in her name.

I love the Monday Morning Dance party. You do know it's not too late to become a librarian, right? :^)

Deb said...

This was a great post. Nice to visit some of your posts from before I followed you.
