Emerald Garden Lady who writes The Emerald Garden Blog honored me with the 7 X 7 Link Award. I’ve been enjoying some of her posts and photographs. It is summer in Australia and I’m hoping I can live vicariously through her blog and forget the gray days of winter.
This particular blog award has an interesting and challenging twist on the usual acceptance requirements. Aside from thanking the blogger who nominated you, sharing an interesting fact about yourself and nominating other bloggers, you must include links to 7 of your own posts. These posts should be in the following categories:
The Art and Sport of Hammocking – This handy-dandy guide describes how to get full enjoyment out of your hammock experience. A timely piece for my readers living in the Southern hemisphere.
Blue-Collar Fantasy Camp – For four months, this post held the record for most views in a single day.
Most Beautiful Post:
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The post That’s a Lot of Hot Air has pictures of beautiful hot air balloons in it along with a few of my beautiful, but sweaty friends.
Whitewater, White Knuckles – This tale of my first ever whitewater rafting experience on the Kicking Horse River in Canada didn’t get a lot of attention because I didn’t have many readers when it was published.
Most Pride Worthy:
I’m proud of all of my posts. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t click the publish button. But, The Pick-Up Artist was a guest post written by my husband, Oregano. I’m proud of him for doing such a great job with it.
Most Surprisingly Successful:
Hands down the winner of this category is L’What. It was Freshly Pressed on January 3rd and you could have knocked me over with a sprig of lavender when I found out.
I haven’t really written anything controversial yet. If I do this long enough I’m bound to piss someone off eventually. The closest I come to controversial is my post, The Upside of Being a Nudist .
Many new readers have become Good Humored in the last few weeks. This award gives me the opportunity to share some posts I hope they will enjoy. My long time readers might enjoy re-reading one of their favorites. If not, come back next week when I have some new material.
Every one of the blogs on my blogroll is worthy of this award. I don’t want to play favorites, so this award is theirs to claim if they want it.
