I’ve just been tagged by Margaret of Cachando Chile and now I’m “IT!…”Thanks Margaret! Thank goodness for virtual travel – Chile is a long way from Portugal.
I've been tagged!
Who made this game up? I have no idea!, but the way it works is a blogger tags you, you match your own posts in specific “Most this” and “Most that” categories, and then you tag another 5 people. I was hesitant at first, however, it has given me a great opportunity to look back and review some old posts. I’ve just realised – I missed my first BlogAversary in May – how time flies!
Here are my “Seven”
Most Beautiful Post
FADO – is like Marmite!
Not sure about the post being beautiful, but we went to a Fado concert and Mariza sung with such passion she moved me to tears. Mariza is a Fado singer in a class of her own and it is the most memorable experience I’ve had since moving to Portugal.
Most Popular Post
In terms of comments my most popular post is:
We are so proud of our daughter; everything she has been through during her pregnancy, the birth and more. Thank you for being such a great daughter you have brought great happiness to our lives as your daughter will yours!
Most Helpful post
Cost of Living in Portugal
Before we decided to make the move to Portugal we spent hours agonizing over the “Cost of Living” and how it compared with such countries as the UK, France and Spain.
A Post whose success surprised me
Gazanias in January.
I was really taken by surprise when this humble post was “Freshly Pressed” I’d never really considered freshly Pressed before, so I was absolutely astounded when I looked at my stats and they’d gone off the scale! I had to refresh the page and clean my glasses to make sure I had not misread the figures.
Most Controversial Post
This is a difficult because several of my posts have been “Controversial” However, the controversial post with the most controversial comments is:
A Turkish “experience” in France
A Post that Didn’t get the Attention I felt it deserved
The Red Palm Weevil – is it out of control?
I felt/feel passionately about the Red Palm Weevil. Very little, if anything, has been implemented to control, dispose of infected trees and of course publicity to prevent the spread of this destructive bug. Even now I see infected trees dumped at the rubbish bins and trees just left to die untreated. Some opportunists, looking to make a “quick buck”, have jumped on the bandwagon by offering to remove infected trees, but at extortionate prices.
Post I’m Most Proud Of
Easy! My very first blog post!
Yummy Carrot Cake… mmm
My daughter PigletinFrance helped me create my blog and taught me how to write and upload my first post “Yummy Carrot Cake… mmm” in May 2010
I’ve just realized my first post was a food post!
I really enjoy bloggin’, especially connecting with other bloggers across the world. Thanks to everyone for being so supportive!
Now I have to tag five bloggers who have to tell their tale of seven. (or six in my case)
In no order of preference we have:
Enjoy Creating (USA)crafts/gardening/cooking/etc – because life is full of creative moments 🙂
Noobcake (UK)Life through the eyes of a Noob
The Redneck Princess (Canada) Recklessly inappropriate, usually unfiltered, and sometimes funny..
Love versus Goliath (Australia) Two people in love against the weight of Bureaucracy
Mirth and Motivation Motivate. Elevate. Laugh. Live Positively…
