My 7 Links — Posts You May Not Know About

webb-7-links

Across and Abroad.com is finally joining in with the rest of the travel-blogosphere with a special list of 7 posts!

In This Travel Article You Will Discover:

  • My Most Beautiful Post
  • My Most Popular Post
  • My Most Controversial Post
  • And more!

It’s been almost two months since I was nominated by Dreamalittledream.ca to join in the fun and try to generate more exposure for seven links on my blog. So, finally, and due to having nothing else to write about today (too excited about my trip to the Mexican Baja in two weeks…!), I’m obliging. So — and since you’re not reading this intro anyway — here we go:

My Most Beautiful Post

Most bloggers decided their nomination for this category based on photography alone — I’m going for a more broad, metaphysical definition. This post encapsulates the beauty of travel and life in general:

Moments That Define Us: 8 Travel Experiences I Will Never Forget

My Most Popular Post

There’s no question here — and proof that the key to a popular post is uniqueness. No more can be said, it gets more traffic than my homepage:

Italy’s Dangerous History: From Gladiators’ Swords Onward

My Most Controversial Post

Nothing can drum up controversy like a little gun-talk. Especially when it’s “pro.”

Gunshots In The Desert: Having a Blast in Sin City

My Most Helpful Post

Considering this post has been linked by top-tier sites like Canadian Living, it must be my most helpful:

Your Ultimate Guide to Hidden Airline Fees

A Post With Success That Has Surprised Me

Who knew so many people were interested in Lac St. Anne? Proof again, popularity rests on being “one of the few”:

Your Guide To Lac St. Anne, Alberta: Central Alberta’s Diamond in the Rough

A Post That Didn’t Get The Attention It Deserved

I really like the way this one turned out, and it met the whole “unique” criteria I have been touting — but the only true praise I received (that I knew about) was from my girlfriend. Well, OK, I published an longer version in a print magazine too, but this is about my blog…

Stunning Works of Art On Display At Inuvik’s 2010 Great Northern Arts Festival

The Post I Am Most Proud Of

I’m proud of this one because it’s not only a great read, but it was an absolutely epic trip — and one of my proudest accomplishments, full stop:

Extreme ADV Touring: Canada’s Dempster Highway

 

At this point, I believe I’m supposed to nominate five other bloggers to participate, but I’m afraid I am so incredibly late to the party, most of them have already been nominated. So, I’ll just toss five out there that I enjoyed:
