I was nominated by Everyday Tips and Thoughts to participate in the “7 links project”.
What is the 7 links project about? There are seven categories, and we need to answer with a post for each category. You’ll see it all just down below… I hope you enjoy the articles and my answers.
Your most beautiful post
I think this would have to be the The Most Important Lesson I Learned from My First Love. It was an incredibly valuable lesson, and one which I continue to learn today.
Your most popular post
This is 3 Unconventional Investment Moves to Make in 2011 by far. It has almost as many pageviews as the homepage. It was featured by both Rob Carrick at The Globe and Mail and The Daily Crux. If you guys are happening to read this, thanks again for the great mention!
Your most controversial post
The post where I “recommend” readers to load up on their credit cards instead of saving an emergency fund might take the cake: Is It Worth It to Have an Emergency Fund, or Should I Pay off My Mortgage Instead?
Your most helpful post
Maybe you guys can help me out with this one? I hope that all of my posts are helpful, but I feel that The Importance of Opportunity Costs, and Why They Should Not Be Ignored is an important lesson in particular, and a little controversial in its own way.
A post whose success surprised you
This is the same as my most popular post: 3 Unconventional Investment Moves to Make in 2011. I was surprised that it was picked up because that had not happened like that before, but pleasantly pleased as well!
A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
This is hard to say. Come to think of it, Living to 100 and Beyond: How Will It Affect Your Retirement Plans? hasn’t gotten too many comments. What do you guys think about the future and how improving technology will affect our lifespans and retirement plans?
The post that you are most proud of
I don’t like to be too proud because pride comes before the fall. However, there’s one post in particular that comes to mind: Gold as an Investment: Performance over Time, because it attracted the attention of the venerable Andrew Hallam. Through his blog I discovered more fellow personal finance bloggers which eventually led me to the Yakezie. I owe a lot to Andrew’s early encouragement of my site, and I appreciate it more than words can express.
It’s your turn!
Your turn, guys!
Thanks again to Everyday Tips and Thoughts for nominating me. She has a great site, and you will be happy you went to check it out.
