I have to admit I was excited about Deeone’s post about the challenge. He had cleverly perked up my interest, by telling me that he had a surprise in for me.
Well after checking out his post I knew what he meant. He has bestowed the honour of nominating me for the 7 Links Challenge. He had also nominated me for his 7 Random Facts challenge.
I was absolutely thrilled to be nominated by Deeone and was grateful for his appreciation of my work. So, I left a comment at Deeone’s post telling him how excited I was at being nominated.
For those who don’t know about this, a blogger is awarded a nomination to do the 7 Links Challenge, which involves looking back at 7 of our posts belonging the following categories:
- Most beautiful post
- Most popular post
- Most controversial post
- Most helpful post
- Post whose success surprised you
- Post you felt didn’t get the attention it deserved
- Post that you are most proud of
After sharing these posts, the blogger then has to share the award with 5 other bloggers.
The 7 Random facts is pretty self-explanatory, and the blogger has to state 7 random things about himself/herself.
After reading Deeone’s post and commenting, I went over to my other mate Justin Mazza’s blog Mazzastick.com to see what he had been up to. I saw he had also taken up the 7 Links Challenge. When I reached the end of his post, I saw that Justin had also nominated me for the 7 Links Challenge!
I had to take up the challenge now!

I’ve selected Forgiveness is a key ingredient to freedom for this one. In a way, this post was quite beautiful and it has got a great reception from readers. However, I did have to think a few times before clicking the ‘Publish’ button in WordPress because it covered an area that is very sensitive to some.

This one has to be If you know ‘why’ then will you focus on ‘how’. I did believe people would find it interesting, but I never expected it to get the amount of attention it has.
Post I felt didn’t get the attention it deserved
I felt What Stutterers can learn from Entrepreneurs didn’t get the attention it deserved. With this post it was a message to other people who stuttered that if I can become an entrepreneur, then so can they. However, it hasn’t had many visits except from my friend Ruth Zive! Thanks Ruth.
