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

      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 🙂

    • Abhinav, how have you been?
      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. 🙂

There is so much enthusiasm in your writing Divya, keep it up!
