Several months ago I was tagged a the “7×7” meme by the lovely Nikki at My Cyber House Rules. (If you’re not reading her then you really need to check out this kickass roller derby chick.) It works out well that I hadn’t done the meme yet though because it’s perfect for my 100th blog post. Which this is.
I originally had something else in mind for my 100th post, but I would have needed to do some creative preparation and I ran out of time. I’m storing the idea though and I’ll bust it out on another time, like for my 143rd entry or something.
In the mean time here is the 7×7 Meme!
1. My Most Beautiful Post
It’s so difficult to choose since all of my posts are overflowing with eloquence and beauty.
Oh wait. I meant that it’s so difficult to choose since all of my posts are overflowing with profanity and sarcasm. Right, right…
Okay, I guess I’ll go with “Skippable Red Entry“. The introduction is my usual ridiculous burblage, but the entry itself is based on the Studio 30+ Prompt “red”. I did a poem for the prompt and I thought that it turned out kinda pretty. I also received a lot of very kind feedback from it, which meant much since this was the first post I did that was creative.
2. My Most Popular Post
This way easy enough to find since my little sidebar gadget already lists the most popular posts, and sitting at the numer uno spot is “A Very Kat Sidhe Christmas”, because you can’t spell “dysfunction” without “fun”. You also can’t spell “unconscionable” without “scion”.
Also, isn’t it interesting that “brood” can mean “descendents” or “to worry”?
Vocabulary can be fun, kids!
3. My Most Controversial Post
This is surprisingly difficult. You would think that with all my cursing, drinking and writing smut that I would have stirred up some time of tempest, but I guess I do it with such charm that I can get away with it. I guess I’ll go with “How Not to Write Smut” since it’s pornographic writing. Very horrible pornographic writing, but pornographic just the same.
4. My Most Helpful Post
My posts are like oysters with each one containing a pearl of wisdom. I seriously should be living on a mountain in Tibet with pilgrims scaling snowy peaks to seek my sage council. I’ll go with “How To Have a Lasting Romantic Relationship” though.
That’s right, eat your heart out Anne Landers.
5. A Post Whose Success Surprised Me
I could go with a number of entries listed in the “Greatest Hits” sidebar, but I know that a few of them are only popular because the pictures in them show up in images searches and that’s why they are clicked.
Can it be a page? Fuck it, I’m going with a page.
My “About Me” page gets a lot of reads and that surprises me. It’s apparent from my entries that I’m a disturbed person and I’d think that people wouldn’t want to peer further into my brain. For God’s sake, you might fall in and then you would be fucked!
6. A Post I Feel Didn’t Get the Attention it Deserved
I’ll go with “Here. Which Is Short For ‘Here I Am Rock You Like a Hurricane”, since I wrote it when I had about ten followers and it’s another entry about my habit of doing things without thinking.
7. The Post That I am Most Proud of
You know what I writer freak I am? It’s really bothering me that the title there is written in incorrect English. I could fix it, but I cut and pasted this meme and I’m too lazy to correct it.
At the risk of sounding sappy, conceited and just like an all around prat, I have to admit that, as ridiculous as most of my posts are, I’m actually proud of them all.
As I said in my Thanksgiving post, whether a post of mine is a lot of goofyass nonsense or if it’s a serious one, I’ve always tried to still be myself. I can stand behind all of them and say that they are me, and that’s admittedly been scary at times. There’s been fear that people wouldn’t understand my warped sense of humour and not find me funny, and then there’s been the fear that, after people did find me entertaining, that they would reject me when I chose to be serious. Despite the risk though, I would hate myself if I wrote something I didn’t believe. I think that Harlan Ellison said it best: “[Writing] means one will walk forever on the tightrope, with each new step presenting the possibility of learning a truth about oneself that is too terrible to bear.”
Thank you all for attending the circus that is my brain.
