When I first saw that Marcy Gordon had tagged me in her 7 links project, I was a bit trepedatious. How would I ever live up to this lofty goal? how would i pick posts that were meaningful, amusing, and that you wanted to read? Acccck!
As you may or may not have noticed, this year my blogging has fallen off a cliff and I struggle with both inspiration and motivation to keep on the wagon. some days are better than others. So actually, now that I reflect on it more, I’m really fortunate that Marcy tagged me – because it gives me a built in blog post! Beyond that, I do believe it’s time to pull out my Creative Whack Pack for some new ideas.
Now, back to my 7 Links. This project asks bloggers to select seven lnks (posts) from blog posts past that exemplify certain categories. Once i pick my 7 posts, then I get to take 5 bloggers. Though personally I think I am going to tag 7 bloggers since, well, it’s 7 Links!
And the nominees are —
Most beautiful post:

There are actually two that are really in a tie for me, and they both cover a similar topic. I am passionate on how blogging matters and what it means in the larger scope of things so, feast your ears on this:
As I looked back on my blog posts, I see a clear theme; the things that matter to me, that inspire me to spout poetic, are the things that you are talking about. What is a blogger? Why do you blog? What is the most controversial wine right now? And then, there is always bacon. I think I might need to bring back my Bacon Fridays theme – where I make one recipe with bacon and pair it with wine – on Fridays (or perhaps Sundays).
What do YOU want to hear from me? Inquiring minds want to know!
So I now nominate 7 bloggers (and yes, they are all women, because I think we need to support each other more) who I admire and enjoy reading:
