A few weeks ago Darren Rowse from ProBlogger issued a challenge to his readers to create a post with 7 specific links – the 7 Link Challenge. Having my plate full lately, both literally and figuratively, I’m a little late getting to the party but I’m here now and ready to play!
In answer to Darren’s challenge, here are my 7 Links:
- Your first post. This one was easy enough. The first post I ever wrote on Never Enough Thyme was titled “A blog…hmmm.” The Super Bowl was on television. We don’t watch it and when it’s on the other networks don’t show much in the way of exciting programming. I was bored.
- A post you enjoyed writing the most. There are actually two posts that I really enjoyed writing – “Boiled Peanuts” and “Cheese Grits.” Probably because they both are recipes that are so uniquely Southern and gave me an opportunity to show off some of our wonderful cuisine.
- A post which had a great discussion. Oh, this one without doubt was the post on Pimiento Cheese. Who knew there were so many people who didn’t know how to make Pimiento Cheese! Go figure.
- A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written. Most definitely the post for Hot, Crusty Buttermilk Biscuits on Ezra Poundcake. Biscuits and pie crust are the two things I have never mastered in the kitchen. I know…a southern girl who can’t make a homemade buttermilk biscuit. I hang my head in shame.
- A post with a title that you are proud of. Hmmm. This one was a little difficult because my post titles are typically just the name of the recipe – with a couple of exceptions. One of those was “1960′s Flashback: Baked Alaska.” If I close my eyes right now I can taste that wonderful creamy dessert that is warm and cold at the same time. Wow.
- A post that you wish more people had read. For this one I’m going to say my post on “The Real Deal Banana Pudding.” Just because I want everyone to know there’s a better way than instant pudding mix and because it has one of the most hilarious comments on it that I’ve ever seen on anyone’s blog!
- Your most visited post ever. This would be the post for my Dutch Baby recipe. Thanks to Laura at Laura’s Best Recipes who posted a link to it on her Facebook page, this recipe was and is still the most read post on Never Enough Thyme. Thanks, Laura!
So, there you have it. My response to the 7 Links Challenge. That was fun! It gave me a chance to revisit some older posts that I really enjoyed and hope you will, too. Back to the kitchen now!
