My very dear blogging friend Kristina @ Spabettie has just tagged me with this fancy thing that is currently going around the blog world: seven special posts. I love that idea because what is old(er) can still be good and should not be forgotten, so here we go!
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL POST
For me, my most beautiful post definitely was the one To My Granddad who died in 2010.
THE MOST POPULAR POST
The post that got the most views so far is the one about An Eating Odyssey.
THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST
The only post I got a really nasty comment on is the one I made on Food Dogmatism and Ideologically Motivated Eating: One commenter accused me of feeling superior to vegetarians and vegans (wtf?! ) – well, I guess she did not read what I wrote, or not everything of it. I certainly was critical about vegans who practice veganism as a kind of semi-religious ideology, as well as I was critical about Paleo-eaters who are swollen with pride from their attitude of evolutionary superiority. I just wanted to state that people should be more respectful mutually about how others eat, and that food choices should not be motivated by any kind of dogmatic mindset.
THE MOST HELPFUL POST
I think many people found my post about (Not) Fitting In particularly helpful. In the comment section, it seemed that quite a lot of them found this post to be speaking from their heart in some way.
THE POST THAT WAS SURPRISINGLY SUCCESSFUL
I had never thought that my whining about how I am often On the Rocks and struggling money-wise would elicit so much compassion and support. Thank you all for that!
THE POST THAT DID NOT GET THE ATTENTION IT DESERVED
Okay, this one was my first recipe post, but it was at the top of my poultry recipe list since the very early days of my blog, and it still got ignored. This post definitely deserves more attention, because the Chicken with Chinese Cabbage and Redcurrants was a really yummy, pretty, and fancy little dish (and I cannot say it often enough: substitute salmon or tofu or eggs or whatever you like if you are not a fan of chicken )!
Apart from that, I am still waiting for my Carrot Tagliatelle to take the blog world with a vengeance.
THE POST I AM MOST PROUD OF
Hm, I think this would be the post about The Development of Addiction in which I write about the physiological and psychological processes that lead to addiction, and draw some consequences from that with regard to sugar addiction and eating disorder recovery, especially putting the hypothesis that eating disorders, even if they look alike at the surface, should be treated differentially, depending on whether there is an underlying addiction to sugar / carbohydrates or not.
AND THE FUN GOES ON …
… for these wonderful people:
