Seven-link Challenge

From Darren Rowse:

Today I thought it might be fun to do a bit of a fun challenge together that draws on a number of things that I’ve previously taught here on ProBlogger (see below for what these teachings are).

The idea is to publish a post that is a list of 7 links to posts that you and others have written that respond to the following 7 categories. Your links should be to:

  • Your first post
  • A post you enjoyed writing the most
  • A post which had a great discussion
  • A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written
  • Your most helpful post
  • A post with a title that you are proud of
  • A post that you wish more people had read

You might like to add a few explanations to different links – for example to talk a little about why you enjoyed writing a post or what you like about the post on another blog that you link to or why you regret the post you regret.

Okay, here goes:

  1. My first post: I, Platypus (Aug 28, 2006). Who am I and what am I doing here?
  2. A post I enjoyed writing the most: Why I Am Not an Inerrantist—Even though I Am (or Vice Versa) (Nov 2, 2009). I prepared this as a presentation for a local church. I enjoyed putting some thoughts together on paper that had just been rattling around in my head for several years.
  3. A post which had a great discussion: Very Short Commentaries (Oct 27, 2006). Easily my most-commented-on post, and also great fun.
  4. A post on someone else’s blog that I wish I’d written: The Lost Local Church (by Bob Setzer, Apr 28, 2010). Bob Setzer is a fantastic pastor, which makes his thoughts about seminarians and the pastorate well worth pondering.
  5. My most helpful post: Better Writing Requires FOCUS (Dec 4, 2008). How to write a college paper in five easy steps.
  6. A post with a title that I am proud of: The Shoshenq Redemption (Mar 4, 2008). I’m not as bad a punster as some, but I still get tickled at this one.
  7. A post that I wish more people had read: Lent Is for All Christians (Feb 16, 2010). Part rant, part devotional. Specifically, I wish the person I’m refuting would read it and repent of his sectarian hubris.

Anybody else want to take Darren’s challenge?
