7x7 Award (pimptastic edition)

My best friend and possible soulmate, David, over at Brits in the USA, recently tagged me in the 7x7 Award.

Participating in this award has forced me to go back and look at my old posts from the past two and a half years. In other words, it makes me see what a fucking dork I am.

Anyway, here’s how it works – list your top posts under these categories and then pass the award on to seven others.

Most Beautiful: I'm not sure if this is the most beautiful post I've ever written but I put my heart and soul into Lilies and Roses, an essay about my grandmother's passing.

Most Helpful: Last year, I wrote a post about my generation, the Millennials. I did actual research and shit. The post ended up inspiring a college research paper for one of my readers, and for the next two weeks I was bombarded with authors/publishing companies who wanted to send me books about the topic, so I could review them. Check it out if you're bored: I'm a Millennial, hear me...meow?

Most Popular: In February 2010 I was miserable. I had just been let go from my reporting job at the newspaper and I was feeling severely unattractive. My post Everything Looks Perfect from Far Away marked the first time I ever received more than 100 comments. It was obvious a lot of girls could relate to it. Another post I ♥ Barbie drew the most comments I ever received for a single post (excluding giveaways).

Most Controversial: Fortunately, I have never had a post which sparked negativity from my readers (at least not that I'm aware of). But I have posted about controversial topics before, such as religion and racism. My post Why Do You Hate Me? addresses a racist attack I faced. My post Sinned Much? exposes people who use religion as a weapon.

Most Surprisingly Successful: I'm not gonna lie, I was a little nervous to post Parody of a Fashion Blogger. After all, the majority of my followers are fashionistas. It ended up receiving more than 1,000 hits in one day! My most recent post Fast Times at Wikipedia High came in at a close second.

Most Underrated: Crazy shit always happens to me. In April of 2009, one of my best stories only got SEVEN comments. Of course, I only had like 10 followers at the time, but still. Please read I am a mother!. It would just make my day.

Most Prideworthy: I went through a small phase where I started posting my (lame) poetry. This is a side of me I had always kept private. Like, very private. So I'm proud I had the guts to do it. The post cleverly titled My Poem regards the negatively charged political climate at the time. Friendship Suicide is way more personal.

I'm going to bestow this award upon seven other bloggers who I know get as much orgasmic pleasure in talking about themselves as I do:

Life in Quotations

Glam Kitten's Litterbox

Amber's Mouthwash

The real mean girl

Love Life Project

Melanie's Randomness

Stumbling Towards Nirvana

I hope you're having a great week, kiddos.


Melanie's Randomness said...

Congratulations on the award.

I love the sketch of the girl in the dress made out of magazines.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

You so deserve those awards dear. I read through a few of your older posts (aww to the mother post).

I wish I was as witty and fun as you. But I made a conscious decision to keep it light around my part of the blogosphere. You are a blog inspiration my dear and I would want to be as open and fun as you if I weren't so guarded!

Friendship Suicide was epic. Anyone who has not read that should absolutely do it!!!!


Sarah Mendelsohn said...

loved reading all of them, great blog xx

Al Penwasser said...

I've been asked to do something similar to do this. It'll take a bit of work, but I think I can follow through.
So, you're all called "millennials"?
Much better than "Baby Boomers."
Especially since we're all starting to retire.

Kristin said...

I LOVED your fashion blogger parody!

Imogen said...

Congratulations on the award. I like this idea for an award since it is a little different from some of the others. I totally agree with your most underrated post and I don't know why I didn't comment on that, terrible of me! I also agree with your most beautiful post, I remember that very well. In terms of your most controversial posts I completely agreed with what you wrote on both of them.

Katie said...

Great post! I now need to read ALL of these posts. The pictures you used throughout this are all awesome. I had to stop and take a closer look at the lilies, the buildings, and I just love that cute bunny.

Francesca R said...

I really like this award! very original! Congrats on the award and on your older posts!

creativefashionglee said...

Congrats for the award! You are a very talented writer and I always enjoy your posts. My most favorite is the Parody of fashion blogger. It spoke of too much truth about fashionistas in a very humorous way. :)

jillian m. said...

Seriously loved this post! I really enjoyed looking back at your older posts and found them to be quite interesting. I admired your bravery in Why Do You Hate Me? and Parody of a Fashion Blogger. And the Millenials post, I absolutely loved.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Yayay! congratulations on the award, Jennifer - so well-deserved! And! :)

Antonia said...

It is an amazing post!! I enjoyed it! ;)



amy b.s. said...

how cool! congratulations!

Bravoe Runway said...

Congratulations on a very successful blog, I've only had 1 post to garner 100 comments and 1 post to generate 1000 hits in a day! I'll have to go back to your earlier posts, and when I first started in the first 2 months I mostly got zero comments... All the best as you continue to blog and I love glam kitten 88 as well!

StyleIDnet said...

Congratulations! you have awesome post. I admire how you right and I think I said it before: I always learn something new or get a good laugh with your posts OR both!
