Special blog project (7 links)

If you have questions, please contact me via e-mail. julia.simens@gmail.com


All of the views, perceptions and experiences described in my blog are based on my own past experiences. I do not purport to be an expert in all (or any) things. Please seek personal professional support if you need it.


The purpose of 7 links project is to unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

Bloggers must be nominated to participate in the 7 links project. I am excited because this gives me the opportunity to re-post 7 links to some of my best blog posts. This will be fun but hard. Then the real hard part happens, I get to nominate 5 more bloggers to take part in this fun joint adventure. Enjoy!

This is largest “read” in my blog site so if you gage popularity by times read, this is it. It is interesting that the most read is about reading! It can be found here.

I nominate the following blogs that I am a fan of; if you’re not reading them already then you really should! In no particular order they are:
