Creativity's Workshop

Taming and Training Your Creativity to Write Abundantly

The ProBlogger 7 Link Challenge

4 Comments

Although I don’t follow ProBlogger very often, thanks to Ami I found out about the ProBlogger 7 Link Challenge. Basically you write a post which includes 7 links to posts you and other bloggers have written in 7 specific categories. I thought it sounded like fun, so here goes:

  1. Your first post: Ah, memories. My first post was entitled The Need for Creativity. Since then, my blog as become far more focused on in on using Creativity in writing, but still highlighting how Creativity is used in our everyday life. I’m not sure if that slight change of focus is a good thing or not. What do you think?
  2. The post you enjoyed writing the most: Creativity and I both agree that Building Trust in Your Creativity is our favourite. It was a lot of fun to write and, hopefully, it’s a lot of fun to read.
  3. A post which had a great discussion: I think I would have to choose Does Your Creativity Have a Name? There are some very interesting responses and discoveries in the comments of that post.
  4. A post on someone else’s blog you wish you’d written: I pick The Secret Life of Frank, An Amazing Creative Idea by Dan Goodwin. It’s written from the idea’s POV, describing his life from inception to distribution. It’s off the wall, lots of fun and really gets you thinking.
  5. Your most helpful post: I hope our most helpful post is Meeting Your Own Creativity in which Creativity explains how to find and describe your personal Creativity. Everyone who commented on that post had discovered something new about themselves.
  6. A post with a title you are proud of: I’m still working on my post titles. I’ve always found titling my work hard. If I had to pick one, I’d say How I Ruined a Perfectly Good Pen in the Shower, or The Creativity Sponge.
  7. A post you wish more people had read: I’m not really sure how to pick this one. I’m going to say Why You Need an Idea Book. It contains tips which I have personally found very helpful, but the post itself didn’t kick off a discussion.

Well, those are my picks. What about you? I’ve love to hear your opinions, especially about point five. What post have you found most helpful?

  1. I totally agree with the best title, who wouldn’t love to know how you ruined a perfectly good pen in the shower?

    For the most useful I found the recent post on wall jumping very appropriate to my current situation.

    Keep the ideas coming they help keep my creativity inspired.

  2. Thanks for the mention Jessica. : )

    I know what you mean about the post you wish more people had read. Sometimes we think we’ve written one of our best posts to date and it gets only a handful of views and no comments, then other times one that you don’t feel is as good gets loads.

    I think it goes to show it’s important to keep writing from different angles, trying new ideas, and keep posting, because you never know how popular it will be.

    • Yes. It’s very tricky to predict your reader’s reactions. I suppose that’s why it’s so important to write about what matters to you. If you try to write what you think will please the unpredictable audience, then it’s like chasing butterflies. But if you settle down and write what moves you, then you might just find the butterfly lands nearby.
