Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.
How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.
If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 7th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

The Tinder Trap
“I’m looking for someone who has the same zest for life as I do. Someone who cares as much about the environment as I do. I love to travel and I’m a very adventurous soul.”
Chad saw Natalie’s’s picture and read her Tinder profile and wondered if this stunning young woman could be the elusive love of his life. He decided to swipe right and to compose his response.
“I’m seeking a life partner who shares my interests and priorities,” Chad wrote. “I want a woman who appreciates my beliefs, my politics, and my perspectives. I need a woman like you, whose physical attributes, strong libido, and insatiable sex drive can match my own. You’ll love the environment in my bedroom, where I can be extraordinarily adventurous. I also desire a woman who can keep a clean home and cook wonderful meals. I am so looking forward, Natalie, to getting to know you much better and much more intimately.”
Natalie read Chad’s response, which caused her such a blush that her whole face turned florid. She immediately swiped left.

[For what it’s worth, I’ve never used Tinder and I’m not even sure this is how it works, but this is what I imagine it might be like.]
