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:
- My first post: I, Platypus (Aug 28, 2006). Who am I and what am I doing here?
- 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.
- A post which had a great discussion: Very Short Commentaries (Oct 27, 2006). Easily my most-commented-on post, and also great fun.
- 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.
- My most helpful post: Better Writing Requires FOCUS (Dec 4, 2008). How to write a college paper in five easy steps.
- 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.
- 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?
