7x7 Link Award

Anna, the very smart girl behind the Defiant Success blog, gave me this award, a very cool  one, which is similar to a “tag it” post/game.

Rules are as followed:
      - Tell everyone something that no one else knows about you.
Well, you might find this weird, but I like spending time alone in my room, just listening to music or quietly surfing the internet! You could call me a loner, but I do get bored after a couple of days and always feel the need to go out, see people, talk! So yeah, I do hang out with friends, but I don’t mind spending time alone, either!

-         -  Link to one of my posts that I personally think best fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-Worthy Piece.

Interesting. Here it goes:
*I have to say that I don’t really trust my Google dashboard and analytics- there’s always something fishy there, so I can’t really say these are right (I am referring to my most popular or most surprisingly successful piece)
** It was hard choosing some links, as I don’t think I have helpful pieces or controversial ones, but I will try to come up with something

Most Beautiful Piece: Beautiful? Hmm... let’s just say the one that I liked writing and I thought it turned out good. Besides the last two I will mention later one (pride-worthy), I would have to go with the post about We need to talk about Kevin
Most Helpful Piece:  Uhm, I don’t know! The Saturday Night Live post? Or the one about On the Road trailer?
Most Popular Piece:  Weirdly enough, right now, it’s the Oscar live-blogging, but I think it’s just because of the pictures! Close by, the On the Road trailer discussion
Most Controversial Piece:  This one is tough...I have no idea! Nothing really interesting happens on the comment box in my blog. If I have to mention something, I would say maybe the Cronenberg posts? Or the awards talk? Or On the road?
Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: Carnage and The Blue Sea have surprisingly high numbers- maybe it’s just because they are smaller films that have got a lot of attention lately
Most Underrated Piece: I loved Shame, and I spent a lot of time writing my review on it, but it seems not a lot of people read it, which is sad, because it was one of favourite posts!
Most Pride-Worthy Piece:  I have two posts I wrote even before starting this blog that I will always remember: A single man and A streetcar named Desire – two movies I loved writing about and who will always be in my top 10 or 20 of all times

-         -  Pass this award on to seven other bloggers.
Gladly passed on to:
Margaret aka Sati- Cinematic corner
Surrender to the void- I don’t know his/her name and if he/she does posts like this, but I love the blog and I would like to see his/her post [Later edit: It's Steven- hello Steven :) ]

Thank you Anna again!


  1. Oh thank you Diana, how sweet of you. I see another Ruth on there, maybe you just like our names? :D This post should be fun to do, thanks again.

  2. The name is Steven aka thevoid99.

    Thanks for the mention.

  3. @Ruth: I always see the both of you on my comment list and I sometimes mix you up, but I love both equally! Can't wait to see your post!
    @Steven: Hello, nice to meet you :) i hope the his/her didn't bother you, but I didn't want to say stupid things, it happenned before (I kept referring to a blogger as she and it turned out to be a he)

  4. I totally forgot to thank you. THANKSSSS :D

  5. Thank you so much! I'm gonna have to do this post today, looks fun!

  6. @Nikhat: You're welcome :)
    @Sati: Glad you like it, I can't wait to see your posts, mine were hard to pick, I haven't got that many!

  7. Thanks for picking me as one of the recipients. I will have to give this one some thought and go back through some of my older posts.

  8. There must be something about the name 'Ruth' - are we popular? haha
    Danke for the award! I just saw this, and the one from Lesya, so I'll be getting on to this one tomorrow if I can! I've been very lazy this weekend and haven't blogged at all!

  9. Nice! What a cool blog award! Great piece about We Need to Talk About Kevin btw!

  10. @Chip: You're welcome!
    @Ruth: I do like the name Ruth :P, but that's not why I chose you! Good luck with your post, it was pretty hard for me, but it was fun. I know what you mean by being lazy, I am in the same situation!
    @Pete: Thanks! If you want to, you can do it as well! I can make you my honorary 8th award recepient! what do you say?

  11. When I say Lesya, I mean Nikhat - getting my blogs confused it seems!

  12. Thanks Diana! I've loved Aziza's picks since discovering it many months ago. Keep up the good work!

  13. @Ruth: No worries :)
    @Alex: Thank you for the support, always appreciated, and of course, I love yours, as well!

  14. Diana - I finally got my 7 X 7 post up. Thanks again.
