What are your top 5 posts?

Mooiness Top 5

Following on my story about my lawyer friend who is now also a singer, if you had read through the newspaper interview or had watch the video of it, then you would know that it took him 3 years of after-hours work and spare time to produce 5 songs for his first EP. It got me thinking: how many songs did he actually write, and discarded along the way to finally come up with 5 that he thought would sell himself best as a professional singer?

I don’t know anything about writing songs but I know something about writing. I know that as he had said, on some days the tap won’t stop flowing and on some days not even a drip comes out. And sometimes, what is eventually written down is of sub-par quality. In this scenario, it’s easy to pick the good stuff from the dregs.

On the flip side, once you have a solid body of work it is hard to pick out what you think are the best. If a publisher comes to you now, offering you a chance to turn your blog into a book but you can only pick 5 posts, how would you do it? What would your criterion be?

To make it interesting for those of you who have blogs, I want you to write a list showcasing what you think are your top 5 posts and why, and include a link back to this post. Comment here once you have your list up.

You have up till Friday next (20th April) to submit your list. When I have at least five of you participating, I will post up a compiled list linking back to your blogs and the individual top 5 posts. 1 link for 6 links back – good deal! And if there are more than 5 of you participating, I’ll just create another post up until the deadline.

For you big-time bloggers, even if you think you have enough incoming links already, more never hurts. :mrgreen:

Why am I doing this? So that I can get some link love in exchange for me giving you some link love. Plus highlighting our best content to potential new readers is always a good thing.

Right now, I can’t think of my top 5 posts. It’s difficult!

p.s. If you rather not perform this little exercise, then you can always comment more. My “Top 10 Commentators” list gives you link love too!

    Considering I don’t have a blog I can’t comment on this one (I can’t be stuffed starting and writing one, I am just a regular blog reader and commenter :)…
    however, I would like to know what you think YOUR five best posts are? Or maybe other people could give you some hints and ideas about your best posts…

    sourrain: You make it sound so dirty. Hahaha!

    girlstar7: I haven’t thought of my criterion yet. I’m gonna cheat and maybe wait to see other people’s lists first. 😛
