Some retrospection, some notable posts



For a while now I had been thinking of doing a post that looked back at all the travel blogging I had done. I had been putting it off over and over again when Niranjan Das of Tales of a Nomad picked me to do some blogging retrospection. It was not until I went through the close-to-140 posts that I realised how difficult it is to pick out: The most beautiful post, A post I thought did not get the attention it deserved and a Post that I am proud of. But then some decisions 'had' to be taken and here are my picks for now:

1. Most Beautiful Post - San Francisco after dark  and Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk (two posts, because they kind-of go together ;). ) 

2. Most Popular Post - A crocodile that ate dinosaurs

3. Most Helpful Post - Sea Band to the rescue

4.Most Controversial Post - I don't think I've been there yet. :)

5. A post whose success surprised me - Chained here is an unsettled spirit

6.A Post I thought that did not get the attention it deserved - A whale-watching adventure in Monterey Bay 

7.A Post that I am proud of - Forest Hill: where the wild comes visiting

Done!

    1. I hope it is. Choosing was difficult. I actually have a few more favourites, some from the pre-Indiblogger days too. I'll pull them out once in a way.
      Have a superb weekend, ok.

  4. Great collection! I think I have to read them in detail later. 'A crocodile that ate dinosaurs' is not only most popular, it is the most amazing too :)

      Take you time. Come and read them whenever you like.
      Thank you. The super croc gets a minimum of 10-15 hits every single day. There was a day it had 64 visits. It's mainly from Google Search. :)

  8. Thank you Divya for mentioning my name here, I am honestly surprised, considerign the list has people who do justice to their blog as well as their readers. But it was good to look back and see what I did all this time. I did read all the listed items here and I am really a fan of your travel writing. There is so much enthusiasm in your writing Divya, keep it up!
    Have a good time in upcoming holidays :)
