I find today’s challenge to be well, a challenge. Five of my best blog posts? What does that mean? Posts that have had the most views? Posts that have had the most comments? It’s kind of vague. So what I’m going to do since my little blog isn’t all that old, still a baby really, I’m going to show you the 5 posts I’m proud of myself whether a lot of people liked them or not.
1) Anna and the French Kiss Review – I loved being creative and dressing Anna in this post. It made the review stand out for me. And if you pay any attention at all to me, you know how much I loved this book so of course it has to be on my list. Honestly I think I wrote this review after the 3rd time I read the book, they all start to blend after a while, but it was still as fantastic as it was the first. Sigh, I need a 6th read ASAP!
2) The Program Review – I worked HARD on this review because I loved this book that much! I wanted to make sure people wanted to read the book without giving too much away about what happened. I wrote and wrote and wrote for this review and had someone read it over. She suggested that I cut it down into two but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it so alas my extra long review of The Program was born. Not sure how many cared to read it, I myself sometimes don’t like to read reviews, but I’m proud of it none the less.
3) And It Begins… – My very first solo blog post. I was terrified to do this. It was fine when I was writing reviews at Galleysmith for Michelle because it wasn’t my job to schedule posts and review all the books and keep people interested. But I was supported into this and taking the plunge was rewarding in the end. Looking at the old posts I can see how in a few short months I have grown as a blogger and I hope to continue to do so.
4) Boston You’re My Home: Love That Dirty Water – This post really speaks for itself and all that went on in Boston at this time.
5) Second Chance Summer Review – The book that created the idea for Second Chance Sunday(which I’m hopeful I can start a link up on as soon as I can figure out how to do it on WordPress and if anyone is interested). When I started the blog I was trying to think of a few weekly post things I could do and I saw Morgan Matson’s book sitting on my shelf and it came to me. Why not share the love of the books that were read before. Not everything has to be brand new. And Second Chance Sunday was born.
So there you have it, the 5 posts I am personally the most proud of. They may not have a lot of comments or a lot of love, but they are special to me for different reasons.
