The 7 Links Challenge
In July, Darren from Problogger posted up a 7 links challenge for bloggers. Several of my blogging friends have taken up the challenge and I wanted to get mine up too.
If you’re a blogger, take up the 7 links challenge for yourself.
1. My First Blog Post
My first blog post was very original and had an original name too; I called it, ‘My First Blog‘! 😆 As you will more than likely be able to tell I really didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I did however put that up in December 2005 and so I am somewhat a grand-daddy of personal development blogging; where’s my false teeth, pipe and slippers?!
2. The Post I Enjoyed Writing The Most
I loved writing 10 reasons why you should start playing badminton. I didn’t take that one too seriously and I just had lots of fun with it. Badminton is still my favourite sport and I still play at least 3 times a week. I’m determined to give badminton the same kind of status as tennis and hopefully the same kind of prize money too! 😛
3. A Post With Great Discussion
My post about University being pointless was by far my most controversial. Although the discussion here was intense, the discussion on Facebook was far more intense and I even had a few people de-friend me as a result. There were some people who were seriously offended by it.
4. A Post On Someone Else’s Blog I Wish I’d Written
Arvind wrote this guest post on virgin blogger notes on 12 reasons why bloggers make the best lovers – in my opinion, the best blog title of all time! I’m so jealous and I so wish I’d written that one!
5. A Post With A Title I’m Proud Of
Lets face it, any article with ‘Orgasmic‘ in the title has to be good! This post was fun, again something not to be taken seriously, just for a giggle and to do something that hasn’t been done before.
6. A Post That I Wish More People Had Read
I put a huge amount of work into this article but I published it before I put much more effort into promoting my blog and so it never got that much attention. The core principles of life is a key to all of us. It is the basis for being mindful and has the fundamentals for living more consciously.
7. My Most Visited Post
Perception Vs Reality – still my number 1 hit article from Google. It’s a popular search string and my article is at the top! (Queue the superhero trumpet music!)
Amit: Great to see your 7 Links Challenge. If the 8th Link was Your funniest post, I would nominate that audio clip you shared from the radio show where you did that prank. I still laugh every time I think about it. That was a great one. I am definitely excited to check out these links and catch up on some of the ones that you published before I found your blog. Thanks for sharing.
Hey Sibyl, My pleasure, and oooh then maybe you never saw my bollywood dancing video…that would’ve given it some competition!
Thanks for the linking me and I am glad you finally did your 7 links challenge. I am getting to know more about you and your blog and so will others. Cool thing!
Thanks Preeti! 🙂
Wow dude! You had the exact same title you have today, from when you first started in 2005? That’s legendary. Much respect.
Hey Dude, LOL no the first blog post was called, my first blog but not the same as this one…thanks for checking them out though, I always appreciate the support! 😉
Wicked challenge and I’ll take you up on that. I love the title of your first post – the ronseal approach to blogging. Thanks for sharing and hope life is wonderful for you, sir!
LOL @ ronseal….indeed! Thanks Phil
Hi Amit. I loved reading this and I’m going to take on the challenge as well. This should be fun!
Let me know when yours is up Nea! 😀
This was very informative for me concerning you and your blogging experience. Nice to read you, Amit!
