The goal of the My 7 Links project
It’s to unite all bloggers from all sectors to share their blg posts, forgotten or not, which deserves to be in the limelight once more.
It’s just simple. A blogger is nominated to take part of the project. Then the said blogger goes through their blog’s archives and publishes their chosen 7 links for the following categories: Most beautiful post, Most popular post, Most controversial post, Most helpful post, Post whose success surprised you, Post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved and the Post that you are most proud of.
Afterwhich, said blogger nominates 5 more bloggers and so forth and so on.
As per Tribase: “This shouldn’t take you long to do – don’t over-think it!”
Sounds easy right? Well, thinking about those categories vs. the number of blog posts I’ve written, I had to ask Ed if I can jump to my other site to get the articles I needed for this project. To those who doesn’t know, this travel site was created to separate my travel posts from my personal blogs. So coming up with that list on top may be a bit challenging for me. But let me see what I can come up with. So here goes…
My most beautiful post: My Take On Solo Travelling
Not sure about this post being the most beautiful post but allowing me the chance to reflect on travelling per se and the importance of travelling alone or with a group makes this blog post a unique and special one. This post allowed me to think deeper and allowed me to recall my memories of the past on when and where I truly started travelling on my own. Before writing this post, I truly thought that I have not gone on a solo adventure. But after this write up, I realized that I really indeed possess these itching travelling feet!
My most popular post: Batanes: Everybody’s Next Dream Destination
I’m not arguing in this category since the numbers speak for itself. This choice is based on the current stats on my site. I guess many agree with me that Batanes is everybody’s next dream destination and my feet are just itching to get the chance to fly to this island up north and witness the beauty of this place.
My most controversial post: Arriving 5 Minutes Late on our Connecting Flight to Bangkok
Controversial in the sense that we almost never left the country on this trip mostly because of the miscalculation of time on my end and some never ending excuses on why we arrived at the airport late that raining morning. Of course we had to suffer the consequences by paying more for our plane fares. This is also the time I realized how important it is to be early when going to airports so as not to miss your flights!
My most helpful post: The Cheapest Way to Bangkok from Suvarnabhumi Airport
I believe that this was my most helpful post in the sense that I provided first timers in Bangkok the chance to save on transportation expenses once they arrive in Thailand. Along with my other Bangkok posts, I got emails from people asking me information and advise regarding their upcoming trips to Bangkok and Cambodia.
My post whose success surprised me: The Scary Boat Trip Going to Nagsasa Cove
This post was supposed to be a simple so-so post which featured our scary ride when my friends and I rode a small boat going to Nagsasa Cove in Zambales. It was just a “for fun” post but it seems a lot of people are also wary when going to those famous coves in Zambales – a legit and wise reason for them to research more on where they are headed to be prepared for this unusual journey. I guess I was successful in showing people how scary it could become when you travel to those coves, but with the right safety gears, everything would be alright.
My post that didn’t get the attention it deserved: The Exquisite Beauty of Guimaras Island
As for this category, I have this inkling feeling that only a few knows about the beauty that lies within the beaches of Guimaras. Although I have not been to the famous Alubihod beach and the Kenyama Beach Resort in Guisi had a rocky beachfront, this was by far one of the best beach trips I’ve been to. You’d get an adventure packed trip when you visit Guimaras and this will always be one of my favorite places in the Philippines and I wish more people can witness what I have witnessed in Guimaras.
My post that you are most proud of: The Year That Was 2010
This post basically highlighted everything that has happened in 2010 and there was indeed a whirlwind of events that transpired last year. A lot has happened since then and I am grateful to a lot of things that happened in the past. As they say “The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.”
There you have it!
Now, I am choosing and tagging the following bloggers in this project to keep the ball rolling…
I look forward to reading your recollections guys 😉
