Amber tagged me to do and I am finally getting around to it! I think most have seen the explanation of this meme, so here goes!
1. Most Beautiful: On Singing Another Melody
There are no pictures in this post, but it's my most beautiful post in that it eloquently captured where I was at in my life at that point. Here is a quote that particularly sums it up:
"I sometimes feel like that ballerina - trapped in a music box, singing the same song, spinning in circles."
It was a post inspired by a song by Regina Spektor and in that post, I announced I was returning to Paris to celebrate my 30th birthday.
2. Most Popular: Giveaway Post
This is probably cheating as giveaway posts are very popular in general, but I freaking made someone a scarf and hat!! I look back and think - how in the heck did I have time to do that??
3. Most Controversial: The e-Reader Debate
I am not a controversial blog poster... Or a controversial person in general... so my most controversial post was probably the post about the e-Reader!
4. Most Helpful Post: ** insert crickets** Date Night it the Kitchen
I am really not a helpful blogger. Sorry peeps, if you are coming here for help, you are at the wrong blog. ;) But I know that Becky made this recipe, so I guess it counts as helpful as she learned a new recipe as a result!
5. A Post Who's Success Surprised You: 10 Days of Thanksgiving
I've done this post series three times now and Erin and Becky ended up doing it with me! It was the first time that I inspired others to do a post theme!
6. A Post You Feel Did Not Get the Attention it Deserved: Letter to Me
Maybe this one? I thought it would be more popular as the letter I included is something that has hit home with me.
7. The Post you are Most Proud of: Why
This is the post I wrote when the Barrister and I broke up at the end of 2010. It was difficult to write, but I am very proud of this post (and all of my relationship posts) because I opened my heart and was very honest - which made me very vulnerable. While I was vulnerable in opening my heart, this post also showed the strength I displayed in making the decision to walk away from a relationship that I knew in my heart was not the right one for me.
I also could have chosen this post for most beautiful and for most popular. I have come a long way since I wrote that post in January. It's hard to believe it was just over 6 months ago. My, how life has changed - for the better. For the longest time, I had this quote as the background of my computer and wondered when I would find joy:
Well, it's been found. I actually never thought I could be this happy as a single person, but I am actually significantly happier than I was in my past relationships. And that is a wonderful thing.
Tell me about a post(s) you would choose for any of these 7 categories - and the url so I can read the post(s)!
