I admitted a few weeks ago that sometimes lately I haven't enjoyed blogging. I've given a lot of thought to the reasons why, and one of those reasons is that many of my most popular posts (as in the posts that are viewed or commented on the most) are also my least favorites. Particularly my post Make Your Own: Homemade Febreze, which has been my most viewed post since I wrote it in August.
I'm glad I wrote that post because it has brought a lot of traffic to my blog, but I wrote it in about 15 minutes and it includes several recipes from other sources (not original content). With all the other posts that I've spent hours on and tried to show off my creativity and writing skills, it bugs the crap out of me that the post most people want to read is a recipe for homemade febreze.
So I decided to make a list of the posts I like the most - the ones where I think I was most creative, witty, or original and the ones I still think about sometimes. (It seems strange to say that I'm influenced by my own writing. I hope that doesn't sound conceited because I'm influenced by many other people's writing too! But I think that it's through my own writing that I process and develop my thoughts. Anyone else have that experience?)
Anyway, here are the posts that I've written that I love the most (in no particular order), some from The Conscious Shopper and some from The Green Phone Booth.
:: Clean, Green, and Fair for Everyone
:: Do It Yourself, But Do What You Enjoy
:: The 80/20 Rule for Going Green
:: How to Lower Your Grocery Bill by Not Following My Example
:: The Poor Man's Dilemma: How to Save Money When Living Paycheck to Paycheck
:: Do Personal Choices Matter? Yes, yes, yes!
:: Overcoming Green Envy
