7 Links Project – A Blog Meme

by Kay Lynn

Seven - 7

It’s been interesting reading the posts of other bloggers participating in the aptly named 7 links project where each blogger shares posts based on the same questions.  I am honored to be nominated by Buck Inspire and 101 Centavos and hope to do half the job they both did!

Your Most Beautiful Post

Regular readers have heard about my grandson.  In the Best Times in Life are Free, I share the joy he brings to us.  This post is a couple of years old and I still feel this way.

Your Most Popular Post

Google Analytics shows a clear winner for most popular post.  After two years, 5 Free Budget Tools still is the most popular post.   I’d only been blogging for a month when I wrote it and knew absolutely nothing about keywords and SEO.  I think it’s time to update this one.

Your Most Controversial Post

I’m not a controversial writer.Some blogs stir up the pot for the sake of discussion and there’s plenty of it.  But that’s not me.

If you could even call it controversial, the post with the most comments (unrelated to a giveaway) was this one food stamps  aptly titled They’re Not Called Food Stamps Anymore.

Your Most Helpful Post

This was the hardest question.  I hope a lot of the posts are helpful.  Since I think budgeting is core to financial health, this post on Three Steps to Success is what I’m calling the most helpful.

A Post Whose Success Surprised You

10 Free Ways to Improve Your Mood is one of my most popular posts.  It’s surprising to me because I consider it one of the lighter articles.  This shows that there is an audience for all types of articles.  They don’t have to be highly technical or researched.  Thank goodness!

A Post You Feel Didn’t Get the Attention it Deserved

It’s actually my first series that didn’t get much attention.  The first of four posts was Home Ownership: Our Experience.  In the series I shared our experience selling our previous home, buying our current home and the pros and cons of homeowner associations.

The Post You are Most Proud Of

This post about The Importance of a Living Will was very personal and emotional.  Tears ran down my cheeks as I wrote about my dad’s death, but it was a perfect illustration for the point of the article.  Strangely, it didn’t get any comments!


It was fun to poke around in the archives and share these links with you.  Maybe I’ll start sharing oldies but goodies regularly with an updated introduction.  Here are my nominations to carry on the 7 Links Project torch:

Thanks for the kind words and glad you had fun! I really enjoyed the post on your grandson and your 10 tips to improve your mood. I was also moved by your post on your father’s passing. Great advice and my guess is no one could think of anything profound to say after reading such an emotional story. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Buck for reading the posts! I appreciate the insight into why I didn’t any comments on the living will story.

I still have to go around and read the 7 links of my favorite blogs (including yours!). I will get there….

It’s interesting to see that some of the articles you didn’t write just for SEO are your most popular ones. This makes me wonder how successful people are who aim for just SEO. Maybe it should just happen naturally.

I’ve found writing what you want and then analyzing it for SEO is the best way. I make little tweaks now after running it through Scribe, but it wasn’t written solely for the best results.

I’m a little late to the party but it looks like a cool idea. I’m in. Thanks for the mention.
