The 7 x 7 Link Award

Thank you, Cheryl, for the award! As I said, I really appreciate it and I was so grateful to be mentioned among the other, more experienced bloggers. It really means a lot to me! :)

This award involves seven post superlatives and, really, it couldn't have come at a better time. It gives me a chance to highlight seven of my old posts and, now that the Campaign is on, gives my new followers a chance to get to know me. Win, win!  

(Except for them. They have to get to know me. That's got to be a bummer...)

Hold that thought. Hi, new followers/fellow campaigners! *waves like crazy* :D

*Ahem* Alright. Here we go!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Most Beautiful
This is awkward. Have any of my posts been beautiful? Hm, what about...

C'mon! Stickers are beautiful. Kind of...
Either way, I don't have much in the way of beauty around here.
Introducing Something New was the first time I got a little artsy on the blog. ;)
2. Most Popular
I'm not going to count
Contests v. Giveaways because it happened to be up during an influx of visitors. (Another shoutout to the 3rd Writers' Platform Campaign!) So, the next in line would probably be Harry Potter and Discworld. Gah, but you guys just saw that. Let's go back a few weeks. How about Are You a Profiler? It was the post where we discussed character profiles and whether or not they're useful.

We also talked about the use of handwriting fonts! ;)

3. Most Controversial
Controversy? Me? Hah! *Gulp* ...What do you know?

Well, aside from the time I handcuffed myself for research or when I tried, again, to make New Adult happen. Let's play it safe and go with: Times are Changin'

(In which we talked about e-books and the older generation)

 P.S. Hah! You thought I was going to talk about the Panties Meme, didn't you? :P

4. Most Helpful

What's Playing? The post where I listed every (awesome) website we could think of that provides music or ambient sound of some kind. It makes for a nice resource, if you can tolerate sound when reading/writing.
5. Most Surprisingly Successful

Oh how I thought the Contests v. Giveaways video would bomb...

You guys never cease to amaze me! :)

6. Most Underrated.

Thesaur-ish Thursday came pretty early in the game, so many of you might've missed it. It was a spotlight on the lovely ladies (Angela and Becca) over at The Bookshelf Muse and all of the hard work they've done to provide accessible resources. :)

7. Most Pride Worthy.

Fear was definitely the hardest for me to write, so it only makes sense that I take the most pride in it. It left me with that quesy, vulnerable feeling, but so many of you could relate. It made me realize the depth of our community and how many friendships I'd already forged here.  

...That was kind of mushy, wasn't it?

Now to pass this award on to 7 blogs! I'm going to feature bloggers/followers I didn't Liebsterize last month. Please take a minute to check them out! :)

Thanks again, Cheryl! Have a great weekend, guys!
