7 links

The other day, Darren at Problogger challenged readers to post 7 links on their blogs. And because there are lots of new people around these parts lately, I thought I’d take him up on his challenge!

  1. my first postlike I need another blog… – I revamped this site in January. Originally, it was a static site built on WordPress that housed my resume and some info on setting up blogs. When I revamped it, I put the blog front & center – thank goodness! This site has evolved since then but the mission stays the same.
  2. the post I enjoyed writing the mostembracing abundance & breaking the scarcity mindset – This is a post on Scoutie Girl as it applies not just to entrepreneurs but to all people wanting to realize their own worth. But it remains one of my most popular posts and it was indeed fun to write. I banged it out in just over an hour and hit publish.
  3. post that had a great discussionsmall victories – I was shocked at the great discussion & authentic responses that came from this short post.
  4. post on someone else’s blog that I wish I had writtenhow to get unstuck: there is no stuck by Kelly Diels – also, pretty much anything else that Kelly writes. The thing about Kelly is that her writing inspires me and pushes me forward. I can’t copy it – I can’t sit wishing for too long that I had the guts/brains/beauty to write what she does. I just have to write.
  5. post that has a title you’re proud of3 reasons to pay more for your stuff – One of my first posts on Scoutie Girl about mindful spending and another that remains popular week in and week out. Truthfully, the title isn’t that kick ass – but it is direct and just a little shocking.
  6. post that I wish more people had readblogging outside the box – Truthfully, I have no idea how many people read this post because it was a guest post on Dave Doolin’s blog. However, Chris Brogan said that he loved it (no really, he did!) so I think it should be read by as many people as possible. Seriously, check it out and look really critically at your own blog.
  7. most widely read postthe art & business of crafting your online self – At well over 11,000 page views, this is my most widely read post. It’s the synopsis of a talk I gave at my alma mater of authentically representing yourself & your entrepreneurial spirit online.

There you have it – 7 links I think you should read. Enjoy them, savor them over the weekend. I’ll be in Pittsburgh (care to join me?).

And be sure to leave a link of your own in the comments!

      thanks for sharing your other blog – i’ll be following along!

      ps – seriously, in Third Tribe, he said he “loved it” – there were asterisks for emphasis ;)

  2. Tara I will be reading each of your links. I find your writing amazing!! As well as helpful and inspiring. I started your online course but then had to drop out midway. I still plan on completing the assignments because I’m totally stuck creatively right now. Also am enjoying your new venture.
