My 7 Links: Top posts

The Road to Anywhere was recently nominated by Ryan at Pause The Moment to participate in the My 7 Links project. My 7 Links was started by Tripbase and the idea is that you select one post from your archives for each of the seven categories. It’s a great way to bring bloggers together and to bring some life back to old posts.

I haven’t been blogging for very long, so I don’t have a lot of posts to choose from, but I will try my best to fill each category and to pass the challenge on to some other bloggers.


1. My most beautiful post

ceiling in the Hall of Maps in the Vatican CityFor my most beautiful post I would have to pick a photo post, so I will go with The Vatican City in photos. The photos say it all in this post and the subject is what makes it beautiful.

My most popular post:

money and passportSo far the post that has had the most hits by far is Planning for a trip to Thailand. It always seems to get lots of traffic every day.

My most controversial post:

I haven’t gone for controversy here on The Road to Anywhere, so it was hard to pick a post for this category. I have chosen Kathmandu – First Impressions of Nepal because it describes the initial shock that you can get when visiting your first “third world nation”. Also, I have received a bit of “hate spam” on this post.

My most helpful post:

View of the ancient Roman Forum, Rome, ItalyI think my most helpful post is How to Spend 3 Days in Rome. I don’t know how helpful it has actually been, but I think that this post provides some good information and seems to get a decent amount of search engine traffic.

A post whose success surprised me:

view of Akaroa, New ZealandAkaroa, New Zealand is one of my very first posts, but is one of the most visited posts on The Road to Anywhere. I didn’t expect to get so much traffic on early posts.

A post I feel didn’t get the attention it deserved:

plane at the airport in Kathmandu, NepalI think that My scariest and most spectacular flight deserved a little more attention. Although I didn’t have the photos to back it up, I think that it is a good story.

The post that I am most proud of:

Heli Copter on fox glacier, New ZealandThis was another category that I had trouble with, because I don’t think one particular post stands out from the rest for me. There are a few that I like, but I don’t think I have written that post yet. I have chosen one of my recent posts, A Helihike on Fox Glacier, New Zealand because it is one of my favourite experiences and one that I am really proud of accomplishing.

As the My 7 Links rules say, I now have to pass on the challenge to some other bloggers. I thought this would be a good opportunity to give a shout out to some of the readers that have posted comments on my blog. So I nominate:

    Thanks for nominating me Dean but I already did my 7 links post at the beginning of the month. Can you put someone else’s name in instead? In the meantime, there seems to be quite a few posts I have missed so off to read them 🙂

      No worries. Everyone seems to have already been nominated so I thought I would just use the opportunity to give a shout out to people who have commented on my blog. Cheers 🙂
