I was recently asked to submit a post that I was proud of.
"Proud of?" I bit my lip and held my breath.
Am I proud of anything in particular? If I had to choose one post that represents me, which would it be?
Good Lord! I've been writing here for over 4 years! How can I pick one post out of the 1097 that I've written? Some are horrendous. Some are sappy. Many are posted without much editing, thrown into the swirl of words that is the internet. Several are written at 2 am in the throes of an attack of insomnia. Picture posts, kiddy posts, whining-about-money-posts.
How do you define yourself in just one post?!?
I finally selected one that I am proud of. After submission, I realized that it would most definitely be thrilling to be chosen to read it, but not being selected won't negate my pride. And it led me to wondering...
What one post are you proudest of? What post defines who you are?
Would you care to share it? I'd love to read it. I'd love to share it, too.
So, here's the deal. Send me a link with the title of the post and name of your blog, and I'll make a list that I'll post on my site. Whatever strikes your fancy, whatever you want; just a post that may have gotten lost in your archives and deserves another chance in the spotlight. There's no ending date to the list; I'll update it as long as I receive your links.
I'll start with the post that I sent in for submission...
