7 links game

Print Friendly and PDF
Its been almost a week since my last post as I am bit busy as my in-laws came in last week.I plan to be back in action next week. Apologies to my friends as I am unable to visit your blogs and I promise that I would catch all those yummy posts very soon.

My friends Deepa and Suma have tagged me to do this unique and helpful game which really expresses a blogger concerns about her/his posts.So far many games and awards kept passing in blogging world but I feel this one is quite thoughtful.Some posts might have surprised us for its response and few would have disappointed us as they would have not got the appreciation which we would have expected in spite of our hard work in terms of arranging, photography, editing, writing the post.I feel this game gave us an opportunity to highlight the posts which we are proud of and are well appreciated by all and also the ones which could not get the attention it deserved.

My Most Beautiful Post: Eggless sponge cake with strawberry icing

I am neither a professional in baking nor in decorating the cakes,I am still taking baby steps in baking and decorating the cakes.I bake celebration cakes only on occasions and hence I do not experiment much with decorating the cakes.I have taken the basic idea of the design from Deeba's blog and used my imagination to create this cake and so far I feel this is my best creation and I am so proud of it.

My Most Popular Post : Mysore Masala Dosa

I am a very big fan of dosas and people who visit my blog regularly would have definitely known about it. Few of my friends call me 'Dosa Queen' and I am really honored for their generous words though I think I dont deserve that title.This masala dosa post was one of my initial posts and was a big hit among bloggers and surprisingly this is the post which got the highest number of hits in my blog and still continues to.Out of the top 5 posts with the highest hits in my blog,three of them are dosas(Mysore Masala Dosa,Rava Dosa and Paper Dosa) and I am really happy about it.

The Post I Am Most Proud Of : Checkered cake and Khara bread

I would like to choose two posts for this category.
I have seen Checkered cake in various blogs and most of them have used special pans to create this cake.The moment I saw this creation in Sunitha's space I was bowled over by the idea and the simplicity of making it without the pan and I thoroughly enjoyed making it.

My husband is a big fan of breads and when I made khara bread for the first time he loved the taste of it and he still appreciates me for the taste of it.Hence I am really proud of these two posts.

Most Useful Post: Savory Oats Porridge

Many of us prefer low calorie breakfast and oats porridge is the most preferred one.I am not a person who likes to eat oats in sweet form and hence with trial and error I have found this version,which is a favorite oats item for us. Few of the blogger friends even tried and also appreciated this and this post also receives more number of hits in my blog.

Surprise Success Post : Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich

Sometimes few posts get a much better response than expected and surprisingly when I posted Vegetable sandwich, I thought it was a simple post but many of our blogger friends appreciated this and this post has received the second highest number of hits in my blog.

Most controversial post: thankfully none

I generally do not like get into controversies and so are my posts.I am thankful that none of my posts were controversial so far.

Post Which Deserves Attention, But Did Not Get As Much : Kudumulu/Modak

I think it is quite common for all bloggers that we expect the post would receive much attention but it would not get as much as we had expected and there could be many reasons for that. This post did not receive much attention as I had posted this one on the festival day itself.I assume the reason might be as it was the festival day most of us would be busy and also that most of us have posted similar recipes on that day.

Now comes my turn to pass this to few more friends to help continue this chain.As few of my friends have already been tagged for this, I would like to pass this to
Priti of Indian Khana
Lubna of Yummy Food
Pavithra of Dishes from my Kitchen
Sharmi of Sharmi's Passions
Sushma of Savi-Ruchi
Lakshmi of Taste of Mysore

I hope they would also have fun and make this game more interesting.

Enjoyed reading through the post...The cake is truly very beautiful

This is a very well written post. Infact, I have never thought in this angle of blogging. I have to go and dig into my posts to check the stats :D . Kudumulu looks fantastic. Most of them use modak mould to make this. Yours and mine are handmade and I can vouch for the taste. Thin layer of outerskin and a mouthful of stuffing. Perfect Kudumulu ...
