Best of Alfa King Memories 2007

Inspired by some well-established bloggers I’m tempted to make a list of the “Best of 2007”. I started in March on a day that means a lot to my country. It was the 39th Independence Day, which reminds us of the struggle for freedom from colonial rule.

For me it was a moment of great inspiration to take up the challenge as blogger. The journey has been very passionate, enriching and indeed challenging. Two posts have particularly marked me. And they are the ones which I’d list as the best for the year.

First, it’s the INTERVIEW with freelance writer, editor and coach, Nick Daws, which was a real test case for me.

Secondly, from a sentimental point of view, I’m very much attached to Tribute to my beloved Dad.

However I consider it appropriate to list the best selections by month. Here they are:

(i) Sweet is thy beauty, sweet is thy fragrance, O motherland of mine
(ii) Studying the Poles to unveil global impacts
