Favorite Posts?

Happy Friday! Is it as gorgeous where you are as it is here? Seriously, it's like late summer here. It's messing with my mind a bit, actually. I'm jonesin' for some crisp fall air -- just isn't the same picking apples in shorts, right?

Oh, and between getting over a virus that I caught at school and not having a lot to contribute, I'm not doing a "currently" post this week. Obviously. ;-)

So, anyhoo, I was filling out a form for the blog the other day when I found myself perplexed. It asked for a sample of my writing, and since it was with regards to the blog (I could've listed some of the Green Child Magazine articles I've written), I figured I'd share a few links of my favorite posts.

But. Um. You see. Huh. I'm stumped. I really don't know what to share.

I've got some posts that are purely personal, highly emotional, and probably a tad heavy for just such a purpose. Those are, at times, my favorites. 

Then, there are those stupid, "Wow, why did I write that?" posts. It's nice to look back and see where my brain was on stuff, but still. Wow.

And, of course, the "that's one of my favorite posts" posts...the ones that get very little views or feedback, LOL.

There are humorous, kidcentric stories and heavier, "topic"-based discussions. Talks about food and where it comes from, and just little glimpses into our life as a family.

Looking at the "popular" posts as dictated by Blogger's counting system, I'm kind of surprised. The quality of the writing on them is fine, but between the amateurish photography (I'm currently saving my pennies for a DSLR camera, woohoo!) and random differences in topics, they're a hodgepodge that don't really tell a cohesive story. Like my rant about giving up Facebook (update: I've cut back, but admittedly could do better), the introduction of our horrible pre-makeover bathroom, my attempts at creating a small mantle shelf since we lack a real mantle to call our own, and a piece I wrote about a terrifying shooting we had locally awhile back. See? Super random!

What do you guys think? Do you have a favorite post or two that you've seen here? If you have an idea but can't remember the title or when it was written or anything, click on the "Archive" link to search by date, or just "search" (there's a box under all my social media rigamarole and at the top left of the page) and see what pops up.

Also, if you'd rather just take a survey with the "general" topics I cover, here ya go. (Notice there's an "other" section...'cuz God knows I can't fit everything I spout off about in a survey.)

I'd love to hear what you think the bright points have been on this here blog! And if you're new around here, take this mini-assignment as a chance to get acquainted with the randomness that is MAO. :-) And welcome to all!
