My friend Roy from Cruisesurfingz just nominated me to take part in the My 7 Links Project. If you are wondering what this is, it’s a project started by Tripbase to unite bloggers from all sectors to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.
Even if POTM is only 5 months old I feel proud to have posts which I can use for this project. Here they are:
Most beautiful post
The Philosphy behind Solo Travel – This one is a short but sweet post on WHY I travel solo. It was my contribution to the Pinoy Travel Bloggers Blog Carnival. Solo travel is a topic that I wish to explore more on this blog.
Most popular post
Filipino Names: Cracking the System – I had so much fun writing this post which is why I think a lot of people (especially non-Filipinos) liked it. It was a true reflection on one of our cultural quirks as Filipinos.
Most controversial post
8 Things I Love & Hate about America – Or what I thought was going to be a sensitive subject since American readers might view it as a critique on their culture. As it turns out a few of them agreed on some of my hates like materialism and lack of vacation. It was cool to see that I was not the only one who has thought about and observed these things.

How I escaped a dangerous scam! Yes title says it all. This is a true story. I thought this was a great example for solo female travelers on what NOT to do when you are in a foreign country. There is also a link below on lessons on how to avoid scams which you can click through.
Post whose success surprised me
Top 8 Quirky Tokyo Tidbits – Again one of the posts I had fun writing (note to self: people like fun posts). I almost dismissed it as a space filler because it was too specific but it seemed that people like learning about quirky cultural tidbits. Japan is also one of the countries I have had the chance to work and live in so I do plan to write more about it.
Post I feel didn’t got the attention it deserved
Vantage Point: Battle of the Skirts in Bolivia - This post was part of my first attempt to write a blog post series. I think folks might have gotten overloaded by my Bolivia stories. It was a particularly interesting post about women wrestlers in Bolivia. I have a companion video on these Fighting Cholitas wrestling if you scroll down the bottom of the linked page.
Post that I am most proud of
Celebrating 6 Year in America (a fresh off the boat’s untold story)- Finally told. It’s something I have been wanting to share for a very long time now. It’s also a post which helps to remind me why I started Pinay on the move and to keep me on track with topics to write about.
Now for the fun part, I nominate the following travel bloggers to My 7 Links:
