7 Link Challenge

I love a challenge! Well, I love some challenges…this is one I’ll take: 7 Link Challenge

“The idea is to publish a post that is a list of 7 links to posts that you and others have written that respond to the following 7 categories. Your links should be to:

  • Your first post
  • A post you enjoyed writing the most
  • A post which had a great discussion
  • A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written
  • Your most helpful post
  • A post with a title that you are proud of
  • A post that you wish more people had read”

So, here we go!

1. My First Post

Wow! It was awhile ago I wrote this post, August 12, 2006. It’s a welcome to my new blog posting and lists the same reasons I still love to add to my blog: to share information, to communicate ideas, and to learn. And, one of my favourite stories of inspiration is included in this intro. Welcome!

2. A Post I Enjoyed Writing the Most

A story about Gandhi with a lesson in humility. Do what I say…AND what I do

3. A Post Which Had a Great Discussion

My blog on sleep received the most comments. Perhaps because people were up late, unable to sleep, and perusing the web for stuff about sleep? Who knew sleep could be so interesting?

4. Someone Else’s Blog That I Wish I Had Written

So many to choose from, so hard to pick one. So, I’ll pick 2.

The first is about promoting healthy bodies and body images to young girls and their moms (or dads) that can misinform them. The last paragraph is my favourite: Don’t forget to tell your daughter how beautiful her quadriceps are.

The second blog is by Frank Lipman, MD. I signed up for his “My Pearls” to receive his “bite-sized ‘health rants'” and always looked forward to read his emails. His blog is no different for me. He calls himself a “health evangalist”, but he’s an MD with a common sense, no nonsense approach to good medicine. This is one example of a posting of his I really like: What are the biggest problems you see with the way that medicine is practised today?

5. My Most Helpful Post

This is even harder to pick. Picking it feels to me like I’m being conceited. I feel as if I should say “even if I do say so myself”. But, forced to do so –I don’t like to give up on a challenge — I’ll pick Supplements: To take or not to take…and which ones to take. It is really more of an article than a blog because of its length, but I hope you find some useful stuff to help you sort out what supplements might help you. And which ones to avoid.

6. A Post With A Title I’m Proud Of

President Obama Wants Acupuncture. Not unique, no puns or jokes in this one, but hey, the President of the US of A wants acupuncture. The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles also supports acupuncture. What are our leaders in Canada doing?

7. A Post I Wish More People Had Read

I love meeting people who inspire me. One of those people is Bruce Lipton. I saw him lecture several years ago and then again earlier this year. I’ve listened to his book CD “The Wisdom of Your Cells”, read “The Biology of Belief” and am now reading “Spontaneous Evolution”. I wish more people would find out about the brilliant stuff that he teaches: The Biology of Belief
