Let me copy that from Smitha’s post.
What this is about:
To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.Rules:
1) Blogger is nominated to take part
2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
So I have to go digging for some my very good earlier posts. And that would make me sad…since those days I had the time and inclination to write. These days, chances of that are pretty slim. Even then I am trying to keep my blog active somehow. Anyway…here goes!
1. Your most beautiful post
That would have to be my very first post. It remains my favourite till date. And it contains the reason to start blogging. Need I say more?
2. Your most popular post
It is not everyday that a marriage proposal comes for you from the UK Around the time I posted this was the time my blog was starting to pick up more readers. This made the readership shoot up. I guess that counts for the ‘popular’ part, doesn’t it? Well it comes in a close tie with this post – the finale of the hugely popular MM series.
3. Your most controversial post
I generally avoid controversies per se on my blog. I prefer recounting humourous or happy incidents and stories. However 2 posts of mine…came within slight range of controvery. Someone who read the post the first time instead of reading the entire series labelled me as a NRI brat over here. And my friends gave it back left right and centre. But even then I really wouldn’t think they created much of a furore. Hmm maybe I need to start creating some controversies then!
4. Your most helpful post
Erm…come again? I haven’t really written of that sort, not really a travellogue (except pics of Kerala) and certainly no recipes, no how-to posts….hmmm… this tag is beginning to make me realise I haven’t got as much as versatility as I thought I did! Hmm this post would not be called ‘helpful’ per se since the tone is not intended for that. But then as I read through it I realised that quite a lot about the process for applying for a visa has been covered here….it might help people appearing for visa the first time round.
5. A post whose success surprised you
My posts are the best, they all deserve to be successful This post was restricted to a certain tag and a certain number of people who would actually understand the plot. I had expected only a certain set of people to come and read this. However the tag became mighty popular and people started following it as a series. It started with hitchy, passed on to OG (who has by now almost disappeared from the blog scene), who tagged Vimmuuu, who finally pushed it onto me. The Al-Shabab team, please take a bow. The series rocked, and so did the post. Crafty did the tag after me, and then tagged Indyeah …who well…by then had stopped blogging and the tag died an unnatural death
6. A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
This post came to me in the spur of the moment. And I promptly jotted it down. I love the narrative in this post, and the conclusion which springs out at you. I think it deserved more attention.
Not too many people would have read this one which is my second post. I met most of my (by now) blog friends only later. Would like to bring this post to everyone’s attention as well.
The problem is, I have many other posts…..but they don’t fall into any of these categories
Hey Smithus, whaddaya say?! Shall we invent a tag customised to individual post requirements?
Jokes apart, hope you guys n gals enjoy reading these posts… as much as I enjoyed digging through my archive and re-reading them
