in case you were wondering...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm a huge fan of the MommyMoi blog written by Brooke Foster. Brooke was my editor back when I contributed to AOL's home & garden site, Shelterpop, and we instantly bonded over our darling sons, born just a week apart from one another. Now that we don't work together, we don't really stay in touch on a regular basis, but I love logging on to her blog every morning to check out what's going on in the adorable world of Brooke and baby Harper. Plus, Harper's just about the cutest little boy I've ever laid eyes on, so sometimes I log on just for my daily dose of baby eye candy. What?!?

Anyway ... Brooke tagged me for a meme, so I'm supposed to answer a few questions about my oh-so popular blog and then pass it on to four more bloggers. Here goes nothing! Oh, and you can see Brooke's answers here.

Rules:

1) A blogger is nominated to take part in the meme

2) The blogger publishes his/her seven links on his/her blog, one link for each category:

— Your most beautiful post
— Your most popular post
— Your most controversial post
— Your most helpful post
— A post whose success surprised you
— A post you feel didn't get the attention it deserved
— The post that you are most proud of

3) The blogger nominates up to five more bloggers to take part

4) These bloggers publish their seven links and nominate another five bloggers

5) And so it goes

6) The site Trip Base will share the best posts from participating bloggers on its blog and every day on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links


— Your most beautiful post:
I'm really proud of this post. And I was really proud of myself at the time. My fussy wussy newborn baby had turned a serious corner and life was good. Ah, memories of sweet, little, quiet babies.

— Your most popular post:
Isn't it funny that the single post that people commented on the most was one that included no words whatsoever? Just take a look. The pictures speak for themselves, friends.

— Your most controversial post: Oh please. We all know I wouldn't touch a controversial issue with a 10-foot pole when it comes to this blog. With that said, I was a little nervous about this recent blog. Women (myself included) can get a little crazy when it comes to touchy motherhood issues.

— Your most helpful post:
In all honesty, I think this was my most helpful blog post. When holding a 2-month-old baby, beware of projectile vomit, friends. Consider yourselves warned.

— A post whose success surprised you: This was my first "little love note," and I thought it might come off a bit cheesy. Turns out, my friends and family love a healthy dose of cheese.

— A post you feel didn't get the attention it deserved:
This is tough because, honestly, I don't think any of my silly posts deserve attention. With that said, I kind of thought people would comment more on this post. I mean, donettes, leggings, Logan from Gilmore Girls?!? This is good stuff, people.

— The post you are most proud of: This is a tie between the posts for my brother's birthday and my mom's birthday. As much as I love writing about motherhood and all the hot messiness that comes with it, I'm really proud of these posts for my family.




Ok, your turn! I nominate Lindsay at Newly Nalevanko, Jen at Living the Good Life and Jessie at Jessie & Justin's Blog.
