Thanks to fellow bloggers/digital nomads Technomadia we were nominated to participate in the 7 Links Challenge hosted by Tripbase. It’s a fun little internet thread that gets you to highlight 7 specific posts from your blog, followed by which you nominate 5 other bloggers to participate. It took a bit of digging in the old mental archives, but hopefully I managed to hit some good choices. Do lemme know what you think!

1/ Your most beautiful post

Enjoy the moments given to you

One of the things I love about travelling is getting out and lost in nature, often with both doggie and camera in tow. I have my most beautiful experiences in life doing just that and I try to share those special moments and feelings on the blog.

I’ve written several posts along this line, but there was one where the comments from my readers, especially made the post stand out for me:

2/ Your most popular post

Without a doubt the one post that gets the most consistent views is our post on finances. People want to know how much this lifestyle costs and I’ve tried to share that here:

3/ Your most controversial post

I can’t say I’ve ever written anything really controversial, but I guess my most debated post was probably this one:

It’s a different view on a topic people tend to feel strongly about.

4/ Your most helpful post

Our 2010 Travel Map

Our 2010 Travel Map

It’s hard to make a choice here. I try to write helpful posts on the blog every few weeks or so touching subjects such as RV Pre-Flight Check, Understanding Solar, Finding Cheap & Natural Campgrounds, Getting Connected and so forth. I generally get pretty good feedback on these, but by far the posts that get the most “that was helpful” comments on are my campground reviews. They started out just as a kind of personal log for me to keep track of where I’ve been, but seem to have become one of the most helpful and oft-referenced  sections of the blog. A bit of a cheat here since it’s really more than one post, but I summarize all our stops on a map here:

5/ A post whose success surprised you

We meet so many interesting and unusual people on the road, and this particular post was just a quick, passing “by the way” kind of  blog on one of these folks. Much to my surprise the post generated waaaay more interest than I ever imagined, even getting picked up by a several online news sources and links. Who knew people were so interested in alternative lifestyles?

6/ A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved

Dogkittylution #5 – Express Joy to It’s Fullest

This link was a real dilemma for me. I always feel the reader makes the blog, so if a post doesn’t generate interest it’s probably because it didn’t hit the right notes with the audience.

Nonetheless I’m on a secret quest to spread joy and happiness in the world and in that line the following post makes my choice. Hope you’ll join me in making these resolutions come true:

7/ The post that you are most proud of

I think humor is a key part of life so I’m most proud of the posts where I can convey and share that with others. Then again, I’m also a geek at heart having spent many years in science and technology (oh yeah, I’m one of those gals). We were deep in the TN forest last year when both of those things came together in a single post. We had sooooo much fun coming up with this one:

So, now comes the moment to nominate 5 other bloggers. It’s a tough choice with so many interesting and wonderful bloggers out there, but I’ll list a few of those I follow who haven’t yet (that I know of)  either been nominated or done the challenge:

If I didn’t pick you, know that you are all worthy and I still love you :) Which reminds me -> it’s about time I update my blogroll (I follow alot more great blogs these days). That’ll come next…

    Very enjoyable read, Nina, and a snapshot of your philosophy and the life you lead; not to mention why I enjoy your blog so much. Keep on keepin’ on!

  2. Tricia says:

    Thanks for the nomination – you are one of my favorites to read and I look forward to every post (I swear it’s not stalking…really!). We’re still a few months from living FT in our RV so the links may not be too interesting, but we will give it a shot! :)

    • libertatemamo says:

      Loved your 7 Link!. And no worries about not being FTing yet.
      The 7 links is really just a fun way to share some blog posts and thoughts.
      Looking forward to you getting FT on the road soon!
      Nina

  3. Marsha says:

    I think you picked excellent blogs. Several of them came before I we began following you two, so it was fun to go back and read them. I don’t read all your nominees but the two are do are great choices. Kudos for another super job!

    • libertatemamo says:

      I am looking forward to the 7 links people come up with. Wish
      I could nominate more bloggers (you included!!), but hopefully it’ll
      get around the blogsphere and more people get to participate.
      Nina

    I so look forward to your posts and photos, you’re the BEST of all the blogs I read, which consists of only one, yours. I’m not usually too interested in most bloggers opinions (got plenty of my own), but I value all of yours since they pertain to our main interests…animals, RV’s, traveling. We’re sitting in Idaho in our RV right now, with the cat and doggie-boy, in the midst of a month long trip to Yellowstone and heading back down 395 to the Bay Area. Retired but not full time like you guys but we thoroughly enjoy every trip, as you do. Each one is a new adventure and meeting fellow campers is a big part of it. Everyone has a story, and RV’rs are the best! Keep the adventures coming, Jerry & Pat

    • libertatemamo says:

      {{blushing}} well thank you very much for the compliment! I’m
      so very happy the blog is being enjoyed by folks.
      The trip to Yellowstone sounds fabulous…it’s on our bucket list.
      And totally agree on meeting so many great folks on the road.
      RVer are most definitely the best!
      Nina

  5. Thanks for the nomination! This is not an activity we would be excited about participating in, however, It would take us one heckuva long time to begin to think about those categories, and we aren’t much into introspection. And we can’t even remember which of our 374 posts is which! But it sounds like an interesting challenge just the same. Oh dear oh dear.We’ll think about it, and if we do go ahead with it, it’ll take us quite a while. (Let’s see if Al comes back fast with one; he’s great at introspection, and has done a lot of helping folks, and a lot of riling them up as well!).

    • libertatemamo says:

      Nooooo pressure at all to participate. I love your blog
      and would (of course) love to see what you’d come up with, but
      it’s purely a fun project and totally understand if it’s not your cup of tea.
      So…no worries at all. If the idea takes your fancy then great, but if not
      then don’t worry at all about it.
      Nina

  6. Ooh, there are some posts in here we haven’t seen yet. Loving the new discoveries!

  7. Laurie says:

    Hi, Nina. Ditto what Jerry and Suzy said (aren’t we the wet blankets??!)Though your nomination didn’t induce me to participate (I’m too lazy), it was appreciated – and DID inspire me to post something. :)

    • libertatemamo says:

      NOOOooo worries at all. Completely understand the viewpoint, and certainly love that it inspired :)
      Nina

  8. Great round up, guys! Thanks for playing along :)
