#My7Links - A Graze Down Maaamory Lane Thanks to Sparkle the Cat

Sparkle the Cat, a very special cat indeed, has nominated me - ME not Abby - for a very special project. It is called My 7 Links and it was created by Tripbase Blog. I don't usually do things like this but in order to participate you need to look through your old blog posts and I thought this would be fun for me and for the publicist. These are the rules:

I need to post the links to:

- Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post
– Your most helpful post
– A post whose success surprised you
– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of

So you see why this would be fun for me.  So here goes:

My Most Beautiful Post

When Harry Met Stinky

I always thought this was a very special story about two species getting along together.

My Most Popular Post
My Most Controversial Post
Goatucation:  A Sad Lesson Today

These happen to be the same. It was the post when I told you all that I had lost my kid. There were a lot of lovely comments from all of my readers and some discussion as to what might have caused it. (I did not count any of my giveaways in this as that would be unfair.)

My second most popular post was:
Meet the Twins

When little Lew and Timmy joined the Farm

My Most Helpful Post
I think any of my Goatucation posts would fit this bill but I pick Goatucation: What Goat's Shouldn't Eat

I had lost a goat friend to bloat the week before and I thought it was important to post about bad things for goats to eat.

My Post That Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved
AbbyDay - Important Information for Everyone who Loves Pets

OK, this one was written by Abby but it is full of very important information and it introduces Sherpa the Farm kitten. Everyone here at the Happy Goats Farm feels that animals deserve a safe and loving home.

A Post Whose Success Surprised Me
That Luke!

I don't get millions of comments like some blogs but I love every single one that I do get! So when a post gets 20 comments I rejoice and do my goat dance of joy! Now I adore my studmuffin but the fact that my readers do to just makes me very, very happy.

The Post I am Most Proud Of
What is the Maaaaa of Pricilla

I wrote this in answer to the publicist's friend, Aunt Nora. I think it is full of very good information. In fact I keep a separate tab for it on the top of my blog.

I thank Sparkle for setting me on this task. It took some time but it was fun to look back over all of my blog posts. From my very first post in January of '09 to this, my 980th post (granted Abby has written a few) I have been a very busy goat. I suppose I will have to have a celebration for the 1,000th post. That will be fun, won't it? 

Now I am to nominate 5 other bloggers to experience this same fun:

Daisy the Curly Cat - because Daisy never fails to make me laugh with her wicked sense of humor. I came to Daisy's blog several years after it started so I know there is a lot to mine there.

Duck and Wheel with String - 'cause I know it will drive her crazy. Not to mention that she is an excellent writer full of maaaavelous insights.

A Goat's View of Eden Hills - because Millie is a kindred spirit. An old goat living with a bunch of teenagers who drive her crazy. She also has the most beautiful horns. I covet her horns.

In a Goat's Shoes - because these young goats love a challenge

Whomever else would like to go for it!

I am a cop-out goat!

I hope you enjoy looking through my old posts. I sure did. Be sure to visit Sparkle's list too. She had some very important things to say.....


  1. Those are all such good posts. I hadn't read the one about Pricilla losing her baby. That was very sad. The picture of those twins is so cute. It was fun reading the old posts. Take care.

  2. This is a great idea! I have been reading for a long time but some of these post were before I joined the Maaa!

  3. I think sherpa thinks you should rename the farm the Happy cat farm since I don't think he really cares about the chickens or the goats... and on that note I see that the chickens didn't rate in the 7 'best' blogs!

  4. i enjoyed reading all of these. nicely done.

  5. Thanks for nominating me! Looks like a lot of fun. I'm sure Gold and Silver will love to fight over who gets the job!


  6. I'm so glad you participated, Pricilla! I loved reading all your old posts - even the ones I've already read!

    P.S. I was thinking of choosing Lin too, so I'm glad you did!

  7. That was fun to go through your old posts! We remembered most of them and are now wondering if you ever keep up with the kids who are on new farms like Lew and Timmy?

  8. What fun- That is a nice exercise for bloggers

  9. We retired goats must stick together. I remember most of these posts, and really think all of your posts are very important. It is our job to educate the world about goats. Thanks for the nomination.

  10. Okay, I'm gonna get you Pricilla!!! I have like 1000 posts to go through! Yikes.

    Give me a few days, but I'll do it. It's a good thing I found this today--I have been so busy at work, that I'm not getting around the blogs like I should. This gives me the weekend to peruse the collection.

    Thanks. Thanks a LOT! ;)


Maaaaaa away....
