The 7 Link Challenge

I don’t do this sort of thing very often, but Sandra Heska King took the 7 Link Challenge posted by Darren Rowse of ProBlogger, and I thought it would be some good blog fodder a great opportunity to reflect upon what I hope to accomplish through this blog as I move forward. Okay, yeah…mostly just the blog fodder part…

Link #1: My first post. Just Me Here. Posted on April 30, 2008, and quite dreadful, actually.

Link #2: The post I enjoyed writing the most. Hmmm…That’s a tough one. I love the posts where I find myself laughing out loud at my own cleverness. (Pathetic, but true–I crack myself up.) But I think the post I’ve enjoyed writing the most was The Skating Party, because it was the first time I’ve ever felt compelled to write. You know, like an actual writer. It was also the first time I’d written something serious that I thought was actually worth reading.

Link #3: A post which had great discussion. I’m going to have to go with two here, because the discussion that began in I do not heart grocery shopping was continued in Say it ain’t so, Kro! Say it ain’t so! The discussions from these two posts have got to be the most ridiculous, and therefore, my favorites. This post was also groundbreaking as it introduced the Pornographic Cheese Buttler to the blogosphere.

Link #4: A post on someone else’s blog I wish I had written. Obviously, any post from Billy Coffey’s blog What I Learned Today I wish I had written, or at least have the talent to have written as well. But my all-time favorite still has to be How to Take a Punch. Which, come to think of it, was posted on my blog as a guest post, but still.

Link #5: My most helpful post. Apparently, Why I hate writing (which I was going to call “Why I hate writers”) was most helpful, because writers are gluttons for punishment, and I managed to stir up any repressed feelings of insecurity among a rather large audience. I know…you’re welcome.

Link #6: A post with a title I’m proud of. Pocket Jesus, the nasty pimp hat and Revenge of the granny panties. Really speaks for itself, no?

Link #7: A post I wish more people would have read. Duh…all of them.

Okay. There’s my list. What about you? What’s your favorite post I’ve written that you wish you had written? Snort!

    The post of yours I wish I had written was any of the Katdishionary posts. Uh, wait. No. The SkyMall posts. That’s it. The SkyMall posts! Hmmm. Just a minute. No. It has to be the Sunday worship posts. Uhhh, wait. Let me think. Those posts about Buddy Love. That’s it. Oh, I forgot about the clown posts. Mmmm. There’s also the rants. Look, I can’t decide. There’s just too much to choose from.

    Happy birthday, Kathy!

    I’m loving this! I can’t believe there are a couple of these I missed! Got me some reading to do today. Oh, and I like your #7 better than my #7.

    My favorite post of yours is “Patiently” that you wrote on 2/8/10. It’s a sad, sad post – makes me cry every time I read it. Very well written!

    I have only recently discovered the vast wonderment of katdishland and have come to love it. Seriously, I look forward to reading you in my google reader daily.

    I heart the katdish rants. I always relate to them and feel less alone in my grumpy ho-ness when I read them.

    Oooh! And you know what I other post I loved? When you sang the Jesus song to us. You have a purdy voice.

    One of my favs is your rant/post on the PROSTITOTS. The name sticks in my head and I have to bite my tongue when I see a real life prostitot and want to shake the parent! (I’m normally non-violent and NOT a name-caller–see what you do to people?)

    Enjoy your birthday/katdishmas…hope it is full of great blog fodder.

    Oh, happy birthday to you. I hope it is really your birthday. Maybe Glynn just said that to see how many others would join in? Anyway, I have a lot of reading to do to catch up on ALL of your posts, but your katdishionary ones make my eyebrow shoot up and my jaw drop down. And those bare buns of that wooden waiter in the grocery store. Is that weird to have a favorite like that?

    (birthday) Blessings.

    I just love a good katrant! It makes me feel like you are my twin separated at birth born to different parents a few years earlier looking a lot cuter than me. But otherwise….
    Seriously, love katrant. And Skymall posts. And twitter posts. And…. YOU!!!!!! Happy Birthday, btw….

    Okay, I just listened to your song. I would like to change my vote for that post. Kathy, that was beautiful…simply beautiful.

    Just dropping by to say happy birthday again! Also, honestly (I think I’ve told you this), I hopped over here after finding you in the SCL comments, read a couple posts and thought, “Hmmm. I guess this isn’t for me.” But the more I got to know you and your open heart (coupled with blunt/funny honesty), I’m hooked, a genuine fan. You’ve been a big blessing to me in so many ways so thanks!

    PS I love how you’re staring me down as I type my comments, like you’re looking to make sure I write something good. 🙂

    Oh man… the first post is always a nightmare, isn’t it? Yours wasn’t so bad though!! Mine on the other hand… like the first few months I had NO sense of humor at all.
