7 Link Challenge for Web Development Blog    

Problogger is having a 7 Link Challenge and inviting all bloggers to participate. The idea of the challenge is to create a blog post that links to 7 different posts on your blog or other people blogs. It sounded fun and so I thought I’d give it a go for this Web Development Blog.

1. First Post
The first ever blog post for Web Development Blog was written almost 5 years ago, on Christmas Day 2005. It is titled Welcome to All Things Web.

2. A post I enjoyed writing the most
I enjoyed writing almost all the Web Development Tutorials on this blog, because writing them gives me a sense of satisfaction from sharing my knowledge with other developers all over the world.

3. A post which had a great discussion
I wrote a tutorial on Removing file extension via .htaccess 3 years ago in 2007 but it is still the most popular blog post on this blog, linked by many and have the most number of comments – mainly by developers and webmasters asking questions or helping each other.

4. A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written
This is a very tough one because there are many blog posts that I like. But if I had to choose one, it would be Why all programmers should blog written by Joerg Mueller. I personally would like to see more blogs by programmers and developers. I think we have way too many designers blogs but not as many developers blogs.

5. Your most helpful post
My most helpful post has to be Web Hosting Comparison Chart that I put together. Before publishing that post, I received many emails from friends and blog readers who asked me the same question, Which host do I recommend? It is very hard to recommend a single hosting company to everyone because the requirements for every website are different. But after writing that blog post, whenever someone asked me the question, I could just give them the link and they can make their own decision. In my opinion, helpful posts are the ones that provide an answer to a question.

6. A post with a title that you are proud of
I am not much of a copywriter, so my post titles are never entertaining or catchy. But this title certainly catches almost everyone’s attention, “Making a Passive Income Online“. And I am proud and amazed at the same time because I didn’t even try hard to come up with that title.

7. A post that you wish more people had read
I wish more people read my rant “So you don’t like ads on websites/blogs” and gave their 2cents worth.
