My 7 Links – Ever Evolving

Marie Asselin of Food Nouveau nominated me to take part in Tripbase’s 7 Links Project.  The goal of the project is to “unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.”

I referred to my Google Analytics tool and was also surprised by the numbers over the past two years. It’s been a fun stroll down memory lane. Without further ado, here are my Top 7. {drumroll, please…}

Your most beautiful post

Cassoulet and Comfort was my “most beautiful” post. It was my first time using photos taken with a DSLR. I just loved the lighting in my sister’s apartment so I was able to get some beautiful shots. The table looked great and bountiful! I know it’s not about the equipment, but it was so fun to play with a “real” camera.

Your most popular post

Happy 2011!, a post that included my recipe for jap chae, received the most traffic; but my post for one of my favorite Indian dishes, You say Baingan Ka Bharta, I say Bengan Bharta, received the most comments.

Your most controversial post

The title for the post, Life Changing Risotto, made it “controversial”. I mean, when you make a claim that a dish is “life changing”, you better own up to it, especially with no accompanying photos! Nothing wrong with a little exaggeration, right? Right?

Your most helpful post

My guest post, Casual Kimchi, on Steamy Kitchen was informative and descriptive. The post also included a video that showed that making kimchi really isn’t that difficult. Go ahead, try it.

A post whose success surprised you

I. Love. Eggs. included a recipe for a simple Korean egg dish, but the response to it was surprising! It seemed that everyone who commented had a story or experience with this dish. The post also included my first video attempt which was received well and encouraged me to produce more videos.

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

While there was some traffic to the post, My Favorite Kimchi: Kaenip Kimchi, there were no comments for a while then a few trickled in. The reason I loved this post was because it was a recipe for one of my favorite dishes using one of my most favorite greens.

The post that you are most proud of

The post, I am What I Eat, was the first post where I really opened up a bit about myself and my family. It told the story of why I started this blog.

Thanks again, Marie, for nominating me to participate in Tripbase’s 7 Links Project. The bloggers I would like to see share tips and lessons learned about their blogging experience are:

Let’s pass it on!
