That Time I Did a Blog Challenge...

This was from years ago, when my blog was a different blog... and then I imported the old one into this one... but didn't publish all of the imported post for some reason.

Since I have new readers now, I thought this would be a good way for them to get to know me! Some of the articles that are linked live on old blogs, but I decided I'm okay with that.

Challenge: "List seven previous blog posts based on various criteria, and then issue the challenge to several other bloggers."

1) Most Beautiful: 
I'm not sure how a blog post can be "beautiful" but luckily I sometimes post pretty pictures so I'll go with I Did Miss My Bed... It's a photo I took in Florida on my trip there.

2) Most Controversial:
I really don't post anything controversial so I'll have to say How to Not Make Friends at Work because a number of my co-workers (at the time of writing) could read it and think its about them. But it was actually inspired by someone I no longer work with.

3) Most Helpful:
I guess the previous choice could have been used for this one but TOO LATE. I also don't post anything particularly helpful but I will choose How to Date a Co-Worker because, as long as you understand that it's entirely sarcastic, it will keep you from making as ass of yourself with a co-worker love interest.

4) Post Whose Success Surprised:
Last year there was an episode of Psych, where they ate tons of cinnamon pie at some diner. I needed to know what I was missing and made one and posted it and it got an average amount of attention. Until sometime in October when people started searching for variations of "cinnamon pie recipe psych," and "cinnamon festival." "Cinnamon Festival" now has 340 1657 views!... Seems I should publish this one to this blog, as I haven't as of yet.

5) Post I'm Most Proud Of:
I love them all equally! Okay probably not but I don't know if I really have one I'm most proud of over ALL the others. I will chose After Sundown This Thing's a Vampire Magnet. What I like about it was how good the water cooler came out in the picture. You may have seen it more recently in the posts from # 2&3. Yeah I recycle graphic elements so I can get them done faster. Deal with it.

6) Post That Got Undeserved Attention:
I feel like this is the same as the surprising success one... I'm cheating a little by picking one from my recipe blog but whatever, I'm going with What do You Call Cheese That's Not Yours? It is a simple cheese nachos recipe that's almost not a recipe but got over 400 hits many of which from people searching "chips and shredded cheese." Oh and it all happened in pretty much one day! If anyone knows why the whole US was searching that on that day, please enlighten me!... (I apparently deleted this at some point in the last 7 years. Not sure why. Probably because it's not really a recipe... decided to leave it as my Undeserved Attention post because, seriously 400 hits? Weird.)
Seriously. This was the "recipe."
