>I subscribe to ProBlogger not because I’m a professional (far from it) but because his suggestions and discussions are fascinating and useful even to a small-time blogger like me. His latest challenge is a list of seven: seven links. Here’s mine.
My first post
, It’s not easy being green
, briefly discusses the name of my blog and my gardening philosophy. If I rewrote this today, I might rephrase it a bit. I’m not so much a lazy gardener as I am a practical planner. I plant in such a way that weeding isn’t necessary every day, I use rain barrels for watering (so easy and so frugal!), and if something doesn’t grow well, I’m okay buying it at the farmers’ market.
A post I enjoyed writing: I enjoy blogging in general. If I didn’t enjoy it, I would close up the blog and spend my time elsewhere. Many posts that related to the 2008 election were fun to write because they were fun to experience. Volunteering at Democratic headquarters. Election reactions. My favorite, the Recipe for an Historic Inauguration.
A post which had a great discussion
: This post about work email
didn’t generate a lot of comments, but it certainly described a great conversation. The funniest part? It was all true. All I had to do was copy, paste, and report. And laugh.
A post on someone else’s blog that I wish I’d written
: This was easy. I went straight to PunditMom
and searched her archives. The woman is brilliant. Her open letter to the New York Times after a reporter thoroughly disrespected women bloggers – well, read it
A post with a creative title
: The recent “No bladder left untested
,” despite its tendency to make people cringe, gathered a lot of attention.
A list of seven with more than seven links: done! It took a while, but I enjoyed the journey through my archives. Readers, I hope you enjoy the journey through the links.
