7x7 Link Madness

No, you are NOT seeing things. This is yet another 7x7 Award Meme post!

Apparently, the rules got a bit mixed up for this one. So last time, we gave you 7 facts about ourselves. This time, we're giving you links to posts we find befitting of the categories given as part of the award! We received this version of the award from our fellow boba-consuming friend, Sophia.


GOAL: highlight previous posts in the superlative categories below.

Most BeautifulWordless Wednesday...not really.
 
Most HelpfulWhat's In a Name? and What's In a Name Redux (2 posts because they kind of go together)
 
Most Popular: Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest
 
Most Controversial: 100th Post & Final Push/Boycotting The Last Airbender movie 
[For the record, we ended up seeing the movie much later for free & because of one really hilarious .gif of a slow rock (and sometimes we're masochistically curious), and we can honestly tell you, it sucked like nothing has ever sucked before - and this is on its own merit (or lack thereof) without taking into account the racebending. You think that's hyperbole but it's really not. I want my free rental voucher back.]
 
Most Surprisingly SuccessfulBlogfest - Writing Compelling Characters: Who was that again?
 
Most UnderratedWIP Wednesday: Math Analogies, no seriously. OR The Importance of Interstitial Histories
[Alz likes the first because it surprisingly involves math. I like the second because I actually sound intelligent and not like the sugar-fueled !!! monster you've all come to know.]
 
Most Pride WorthyMagnum Opus
 
There you have it! Now, we're going back to NaNoing. How are your word counts, fellow NaNo-ers? Non-NaNoers, how are you? What are you up to?

I think I first found your blog (or at least first commented) through the Avatar post -- and I still agree with it, so so much!

And ah, NaNo. I don't even dare think about it, I'm so embarrassed.

You guys run such a fun blog :D

(And I may have had a 'watch The Last Airbender online skype parTAY' which was filled with equal parts hilarity and indignation)

Connie Keller said...

I can't wait to check out the posts that I've missed.

So now I've got to check out the Last Airbender post. Me and a few friends had our own pow wow about it. Not sure what was left of that movie when we finished.

By the way, you have an award over at my blog: http://publishness.blogspot.com/2011/11/where-did-all-good-words-go.html

Not Nanoing but I did get some wordage done today!

These were great posts. I think you have more than a top 7, but I guess you had to limit yourself. Sigh. I think your reviews are some of the best posts I've ever read on a blog.

Sophia Chang said...

Woooo! I loved getting a retrospective, especially the posts I missed since I only met you guys at the end of 2010. Can't wait to do Lori's vlog together soon!

I will have to go back and read the posts I missed!

Word count? Almost 8k.

I'm a non-NaNo'er and I'm doing pretty well with revisions.

This reminds me that I forgot to pass along a 7x7 award.

I'll check out the links.

I'm a nanoer who is regretting taking the challenge already, but I do have enough story telling left to not give up just yet.
I had a blast coursing through those links. You guys keep yourselves very busy here. :)
