Some of you, if you spend some time on Twitter or hanging around the blog world, may have come across the #7links Challenge in the last week. If you’ve not heard of it, it was started by Darren Rowse of ProBlogger fame with the aim
to create a list post that highlights some of the posts in your archives to new readers (a sneeze page), that links out to another blog and that hopefully is a little fun (and not too much work) to do.
I’ve never done something like this here on my blog before but thought it would be a great idea and a great way top share some of the stuff that you may have missed over the last few months. I have, also, just notived that I have reached a milestone in my blogging journey and this post marks my 150th post!
Anyway, here are some of the posts that I have written over the last few months and one I wish I had written 😉 I hope you enjoy this look back.
My first post
Technically, this is my second post but the first one of any length. Funnily enough it’s also become one of the corner stone ideas ………building better relationships in order to grow your business…..of the new book that I am writing that should be out in September 🙂 Very exciting
The post I enjoyed writing the most
I love this post as I was able to integrate an old song that we all know from childhood into a post idea. I hope by doing that I made it memorable.
The post which had the most discussion
This is a post that was a personal log of stuff that I have learnt over the last few months and was also featured on Social Media Today. Before their recent redesign, it had recorded in excess of 15,000 reads, a number of comments, around 300 retweets and caused my site traffic to jump by a factor of 3 on that day.
A post on someone else’s blog that I wish I’d written
I read this and instantly wished I had written this. It’s a really refreshing way to look at business growth. I wrote my own take on it in The Ancient Art of Bonsai Growing and Business Growth.
My most helpful post
Being unique in business is one of the hardest things that I find business owners grapple with. This is a post that hopefully helps break down how you can find your own uniqueness. It doesn’t make it easy but I hope that it makes the issue more approachable.
A post with a title that you are proud of
I just like this title as it’s more of a statement that I hope encourages people to think and incites intrigue. What do you think?
A post that I wish more people had read
Change is one of the constants that we face in life and I wish that this post had more reads. Why? I believe the formula in the post provides a simple way of looking at change and how we can approach it and diagnose what needs to be done to create momentum for real, sustainable change. Have you read it?
These are my favourites. Do you have other favourites? I’d be keen to know which posts you like the most.
