7 Link Challenge


Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.
(Karen Ravn)

Last month Darren Rowse of ProBlogger fame shared a 7 link challenge for bloggers.

The following links are my take on the concept...

  1. Your first post – I launched KaileenElise.com with a brief post titled Hello World! that shared my creative intentions for the site.

  2. A post you enjoyed writing the mostMy Goals from 2 Years Ago was a fun post to write because it was a chance to share a bit of my background while examining the kind of change that can take place over 2 years. Looking back on moments in the past is one of the reasons why I love to journal (and blog!).

  3. A post which had a great discussion – I was so inspired and grateful for the comments that were left in response to my Do You Have a Mindful Mentor? post. So many people shared their ideas on the topic and I was surprised by the number of people who emailed me about their need for mentorship, too. Thanks to that post, I have a mindful mentor to call my own.

  4. A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written – It's no secret that Kimberly Wilson's work inspires me to pursue my dreams. With an entrepreneurial attitude, down-to-earth nature and attention to sparkle, she's the kind of woman I aspire to become. If you haven't read her Tranquility Timeline, grab a cup of tea, pull up a chair, and prepare to be awestruck.

  5. A post with a title that you are proud ofEncourage Abundance, Invite Joy summarizes the way I try to approach every day.

  6. A post that you wish more people had read5 Tips for Landing Your Idea Job. This post lists 5 key things that make (and break) many job searches. The concepts are basic, but the devil lives in the details.

  7. Your most visited post ever – My Creative Weekend To-Do List started out as a single post that listed creative to-dos for the weekend ahead. It was my first post to get picked up by StumbleUpon, which resulted in my highest traffic day to date. Since the list was such a success, I began a series of CWTDL posts that continue to receive positive feedback.

I found this to be a fun exercise, especially as I prepare to celebrate my 1-year blogiversary. If you have a blog I encourage you to try this out. Of course, I would love to read your 7 links!
