My 7 links

My 7 Links

Hi guys! So my friend Joanna at Come Back Daddy invited me to participate in the 7 Links challenge.

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.


1) Blogger is nominated to take part

2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.

3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.

4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers

5) And so it goes on!

6) We’ll be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on our blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links

Most Beautiful
It's an older one, but happy new year is probably the one that stands out as my most beautiful post.  Just reading it again reminds me to smile, even in these stressful times.  It's all about the love that I carry around for my family, and how I never thought that I could love so much.

Most Popular
My most popular post is 9 years ago today, about the day that K and I got married.  Even when I read it a now it fills me with love.  I'm going to also mention my second most popular post, which is pooing in peace.  I love this post because it is short and sweet, but oh so telling about the life of a part time single mama, as well as the hilariousness that is my husband.  I think a LOT of people can relate to this one!
Most Controversial
This is a tough one.  I could go so many ways on this one, and I immediately think of a handful of posts.  Not one of them have caused any comments about the topic that make me say they are controversial, more they are because of the topic itself.  I think I'll go in this direction, and point out a couple of posts that fall here.  They are eats on feetseats on feets 2 and eats on feets and other stuff.  These are all about milk sharing.  Again, I don't think that any of my readers have expressed that they feel this is wrong, but I know what the school of thought is out in the general public.  I like to remind people about the good that can come from it, so that is why I'm choosing this subject/these posts.
Most Helpful
Hm.  I'm not sure where to go here.  I don't really think that I 'teach' on my blog, it's more just ramblings, LOL.  I think I'm going to stay on a topic from the controversial aspect, and say big thank you.  I guess this means that the same posts from before could all go here.  Someone learned more about milk sharing through my blog and passed the word along.  I think this is so great.
Suprise Success
I think I'll have to go with teeth? teeth! It stemmed from an earlier post (oh life of pilots wife and ttc) where I mentioned Bugs crazy third tooth that came in on the bottom.... instead of a top one.  People wanted to see those pearly whites!  But when I think about it, I love to see kiddo's pearly whites myself... it's just so darn cute!!
Not Enough Attention
I was actually surprised that infertility in general didn't get more attention.  Maybe it was just because I didn't have a lot of IF followers at the time (not that I have a ton of followers in general!) or if they all just understood too well what I felt/meant by this post.

Most Proud
I am most proud of infertility ivf final chapter.  It was a difficult post to write and put out there.  It was putting out there something that I hadn't spelled out since it had happened, over 2 years prior.  It was heart wrenching, and soul cleansing all in the same. 

I nominate:
