Take the 7 Link Challenge Today #7links

Posted By Darren Rowse 16th of July 2010 Writing Content 0 Comments

Today I thought it might be fun to do a bit of a fun challenge together that draws on a number of things that I’ve previously taught here on ProBlogger (see below for what these teachings are).

The idea is to publish a post that is a list of 7 links to posts that you and others have written that respond to the following 7 categories. Your links should be to:

  • Your first post
  • A post you enjoyed writing the most
  • A post which had a great discussion
  • A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written
  • Your most helpful post
  • A post with a title that you are proud of
  • A post that you wish more people had read

You might like to add a few explanations to different links – for example to talk a little about why you enjoyed writing a post or what you like about the post on another blog that you link to or why you regret the post you regret.

The main aim of doing this challenge is to create a list post that highlights some of the posts in your archives to new readers (a sneeze page), that links out to another blog and that hopefully is a little fun (and not too much work) to do.

If you tag your posts or are going to tweet a link to it – use #7links as a tag to help the meme continue.

I’ll post my own 7 links tomorrow here on ProBlogger – stay tuned!

PS: once you’ve written your 7 link challenge post – link to it in comments below so we can take a look!
