"How the hell does this work?"
to take part in a little exercise in memory harvesting.
The idea is to make a list of your own posts, categorising them as :
- Your most beautiful post
- Your most popular post
- Your most controversial post
- Your most helpful post
- A post whose success surprised you
- A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
- The post that you are most proud of
You also have to pick 5 other blogs to do the same thing.
(My first choice would have been Hestia's Larder, but she has already been nominated)
To start here's my list of blogs that I would nominate to take part.
Richard (of Richard's Bass Bag)
Crivens, Jings and Help Ma Blog
A Girl's Guide to turning 50
Now for my own list of posts.
It does seem a little narcissistic to do this, but what the hell.
1. My most beautiful post.
What is beauty? I don't really know, but I'll try this one.
Because it contains some of the loveliest photos; sunny blue skies framed by the palm trees outside my window, a perfect cup of tea, sunshine streaming into our back room with our wee dog in warm bliss, the best kind of artery-clogging breakfast, and a lovely spot to eat it. Completed with an image of an All Black (Conrad Smith) scoring a winning try against the Aussies. Sheer beauty.
2. My most popular post.
Hmmm. My most viewed post was walking the dog.
But for some reason 50,000 and a pantie pervert is screaming up the popularity stakes. Beats me.
3. My most controversial post
None. I don't do controversy.
Yes you do.
No I don't
Yes YOU DO.
Oh, OK then.
Probably the one about A Fair division of Labour
Where I discuss the equitable division of work in a family. (I lose)
4. My most helpful post.
Bit of a quandary on this one. I tend not to be helpful. Maybe the offer of potential husbands to Fflur?
Yes, let's go for Fflur's Choice
5. My post whose success surprised me.
The mere fact that anyone wants to read the crap shooting out of my keyboard is surprising enough. But I suppose the most surprising success is Uluru part 1 and part 2. It's a simple travelogue, but always popular.
See Uluru Part 1
and Uluru Part 2
6. My post I feel didn’t get the attention it deserved.
I really worked hard on quite a few, trying to get the humour/cynicism/ disgust levels just right..Yet not one comment, or hardly any.
Probably Daughters and Gadgets.
7.The post that I am most proud of.
Probably my Amateur Theatre Night.
I think the writing is my best, and the ultimate critic, ManOfErrors liked it.
Hope you agree with my choices, but if not, please let me know, or just go away.
Isn't the Internet wonderful.
BTW, My most favourite picture in all of my blogs is a tie.
I just can't make up my mind.
Maybe you can let me know?
PS Have you any idea how long I have to wind the emergency earthquake generator to get even 5 minutes of the internet from this poxy MacBookPro of m'son's.
I have hopes of getting back uptomorrow, as I have to escort my Beloved to hospital for a gastroscopy/endoscopy.
Covering both ends as it were.
