My 7 links

| |

I´m taking part on this round up of bloggers nominating each other to post their own 7 links on specific expectations and reactions.

First of all, it was an honor for me to be nominated by Melissa from Break Out of Bushwick , because after choosing your own 7 links you get to nominate only up to 5 other bloggers to participate on this link´s party.

This is all coming from Tripbase´s initiative called My 7 Links, aiming at uniting bloggers ¨in a joint endeavour to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again¨.

So, here are my 7 links:

My most beautiful post

Making the world a better place, tiny bits or big pieces at a time – I wrote this for a friend´s blog and it turned out to be about something I think that really matters to our society.

My most popular post

3 years breastfeeding – why I went on long term  – I´m really proud of this one as I did some good research besides telling my story. I was hoping to help moms that are not well informed of the benefits of extended breastfeeding. And it looks like I´m doing just that, without realizing it, I made a post that attracts lots of visitors searching the word: ¨breastfeeding¨.

My most controversial post

How slack can a parent´s limits be?  – I got some comments from moms that think completely opposite from me, but they were all respectful about our differences.

My most helpful post

How I´m teaching my 3-year old a second language – This is to inspire other parents to do the same, learning other languages is one of the skills I find most important in our world. Even monolingual parents can put their hands on this while the children are young.

A post whose success surprised me

The disadvantages of traveling alone with a young child – I learned that people fell attracted to reading about problems. I guess that when you pour your soul into something difficult, people can connect deeply to that, besides the happy things we tend to talk about publicly. 

A post that didn’t get the attention it deserved

Don´t follow your instincts – I made my homework researching well about how we can mislead ourselves when parenting and how we should fight it.

The post that I´m most proud of

Stopping my own aggressive behavior towards my child – Writing about this made a huge difference in my life. I got so much more conscious and more committed to change what needs to be changed and I loved the warm results I got from it.

And now, I nominate 4 bloggers to take part of this:

Jenna, from Plaid Sheep – I love her humor and her views on parenting.

Lisa, from Visionary Mom – She must have changed the lives of so many moms by now, I was in two of her Visionary Mom teams and loved them. 

Jennifer, from Good Job and Other Things – I´m totally tuned in with her parenting approach and I love the practical examples of her life she uses to illustrate what RIE approach and mindful parenting is all about.

Kairen, from Confessions of  Single Mum – An experienced single mom that can share a lot.
