My 7 Links Challenge: A Year of Travel Blogging in Review

About four months ago, awesome photographer, writer and friend Lola Akinmade nominated me to take part in the “My 7 Links” challenge.

If you’re in the travel blogging world, you’ll know what I’m referring to.

It’s an idea that originated from TripBase: you go through your blog archives and post “7 Links”  in answer to 7 specific categories (listed below).

You have to be nominated to participate.

And once you do, you get to then “tag” or nominate 5 more bloggers to take their turn at this fun exercise (just make sure they haven’t already been nominated by looking them up on this list).

I was at the start of my Road Warrior program, in Belize, when I found out I was challenged. But I was so swamped that I never got a chance to post my entry.

Now that the end of the year is approaching, I can’t think of a better time to look back at my year of blogging and walk down memory lane.

A sort of year-in-review, in 7 posts… here we go!

2. My most popular post: Rappelling 300 Feet Into A Belizean Rainforest

I’m not sure what counts as “popular” but I decided to go with the number of comments, Continue reading »
