• 7 Links

    July 21, 2011

    Monica nominated me to do the “7 Links Post” that is going around the blogworld, so I decided to play along.

    Most Beautiful

    For a pug, my little furball knows quite a bit about the important things in life: Life Advice from Murphy. I often go back and read this post when I need a little pick-me-up.

    Most Popular

    Life Advice from Murphy: This baby ended up on StumbleUpon and raked in nearly 80,000 pageviews in a single day! Wicked awesome.

    Trying to Stay Positive: When I shared my colitis diagnosis in this post, it received well over 500 supportive comments. You guys rule.

    Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Recap: A bunch of people said they cried reading my marathon recap post. I also got angry comments because I didn’t post the recap right away. I guess people really wanted to hear how it went.

    Most Controversial

    I don’t typically address controversial issues on CNC, but there was this one time that my name was dragged through the mud in a national magazine: My Response to Marie Claire.

    Surprise Success

    The post about how Mal and I manage our finances: How We Do It. There were lots of different opinions on this one!

    Also, the Pug 5K post. People still tell me how much they enjoyed reading it.

    Not Enough

    My post about Teen Mom. My hatred for the show has grown since that post, so it might not fully come across in my writing, but I wish more people would realize the terrible message that the show sends to young girls.

    Also, my Blogger Responsibility: Where Do We Draw the Line post ended up being pretty tame in the comment section. I thought there would be a lot more conversation with that one.

    Most Proud

    This isn’t a specific post, but I’m really proud of my Blogging page. I really enjoy helping new bloggers get their feet wet.

    And now I pass the torch onto 5 people:

    It was really tough for me to think about these posts, which is part of the reason why I haven’t created a “Top Posts” page yet. I can never think of my favorite posts! If I missed any posts that you really loved, please let me know. It’ll help me when I finally put together my Top Posts page!

    How did I know that Murphy was going to rake in that many people!??!

    Seriously I still cannot get enough of him even though I’ve been reading for a year!

    Hey, so the past few days your pictures have not been showing up in my email updates? Anything you’ve been doing differently? Maybe I need to unsubscribe and then resubscribe to fix it.

    I cannot see your pictures. did you change anything CSS or htaccess or something? your wetsite is also not design-looked too. (which related the link to CSS file) This happened about 2days ago. please fix. i hope to see your blog with the pix and design soon. thanks and good luck.

    I just checked out the “Life Advice from Murphy” post again. I subscribe to your blog so it’s not like I’ve never seen Murphy’s adorable face before, but those photos were all just so hilarious that I now legitimately want a pug of my own.

    This post is actually what led me to read your blog for 3-4 hours last night. Definitely glad you played along!
