My 7 Links Project: older blog posts given a new lease of life

I was nominated by Ruth from Tanama Tales to participate in the “My 7 Links” project. I’ll be honest and say that I’d never heard of that project until Ruth included me in her list, but upon reading her post I got excited to participate. It all began when the folks at TripBase set the ball rolling and created a wonderful chain reaction of travel-related posts.

The rules state that one blogger is nominated to take part, then he or she publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog  and nominates up to five other bloggers.

MOST BEAUTIFUL POST

A photo essay of the Dallas Arboretum in the autumn. The colours are stunning and the atmosphere was magical (even if I say so myself).


MOST POPULAR POST

In terms of page views, this post on fun facts about Argentina seems to be the most popular.

MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST

I’m not sure this post can be called controversial but it did elicit a lot of responses. I’d like to thank everyone for sharing their experiences and thoughts. You’re From Where!? is about how some people’s prejudices affected their perception of my ethnicity and nationality.

MOST HELPFUL POST

I’d like to think that all my travel tips are helpful but since I have to choose one, I’d say that this one about the seaside resort of Mar del Plata, Argentina, provided some useful information for visitors.

 A POST WHOSE SUCCESS SURPRISED YOU

A while ago, some fellow bloggers and I took part in a group post about weddings in different countries. I was surprised to see that my Argentinean wedding aroused so much interest!

A POST YOU FEEL DIDN’T GET THE ATTENTION IT DESERVED

I really thought that this post on travel tips about Buenos Aires would be more popular than it was. Oh well.

THE POST THAT YOU ARE THE MOST PROUD OF

I’m proud of all my posts but this one about a Texas road trip feels extra special because the countryside reminded me of my home country.

And here are my nominees

Katie from Seashells and Sunflowers

Aledys from From Argentina to the Netherlands for Love

Anu from A Wandering Mind

  1. I was just about to tag you in my own 7 links post. Ha! I like the idea of breathing new life into old posts with this meme. It was fun to see which posts you picked.

  2. Ana,
    Glad to see you completed the 7 Links Project. I learn some tips from your Mar del Plata and Buenos Aires articles. I really enjoyed the fun facts about Argentina post. All the facts were new to me (plus they are interesting).

  3. Hey Ana, thanks for the nomination! I wish I had seen it sooner; this is a cool concept! Your ‘controversy article’ is well-written. Were most of those Dallas-based responses? Yikes!
