400th Post And The Versatile Blogger Award

Yes, this is my 400th post!

*takes a moment to grin and dance about in happy circles then realize how ridiculous that looks and regain composure*

I thought about what to do to celebrate the occasion, but nothing spectacular really came to me . . . there are a lot of awesome blogfests happening already, and I'm afraid I have no brilliant ideas at the moment (why do all the good ideas come to me when I don't have paper around on which to write them down?).

So I have decided to ask YOU to ask me questions on anything (well, almost) you'd like to know about me.

Old trick in the book, but I always find it fun to know more about the bloggers in the 'sphere, so it seemed to me like something to try.

They can be all kinds of questions from writing-related to silly to philosophical to complicated to . . . well, you get the picture. You have 7 days to ask (and you can come back with more in case something strikes you) since I'll be answering everything one week from now.

(If you don't feel like asking, no worries. This is for your benefit, you awesome readers who have suffered through hundreds of my posts by now. :P)


I would also like to accept the Versatile Blogger Award from Trisha at W O R D + S T U F F.

Thank you so much for awarding me, Trisha!

I've already listed 7 things about myself before, and awarded people . . . so I hope you'll forgive me if I skip that part of the Versatile Blogger Award.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Lydia K said...

400! Awesome! Congrats on your achievement and your award, too!

KarenG said...

400 is a lot of posts! I just checked mine today and it's somewhere in the 200's. I guess if I had posted every day of my blog's life, it would be almost 700, but then I might have to quit from exhaustion.

The Blogger Formerly Known As said...

Congratulation on both big achievements.

Holly Ruggiero said...

Good golly, that’s a lot of posts. Congrats.

Brian said...

Congrats on 400 posts! I wish I knew how many I've done, but my first 2 blogs were hijacked by evil bandits and I lost everything. Question: Your profile says you are also a musician, so what do you music?

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

400 posts! Way to go :)) I love how you're celebrating and I can't wait to read the answers to questions you'll get. Here's one:

Are you known to carry around a notebook for jotting down story or character ideas as they come to you? What's you favorite way to capture such inspiration if you don't have a notebook handy?

Heather said...

Congrats on your 400th post and your award!

Sun Singer said...

How do you fit all these posts into the rest of your life? Do you blog and comment on a schedule, randomly or whenever you need a break from everything else?


Robyn Campbell said...

Happy dance time. :) Congrats on a well-deserved award.

Coffee or tea? Dark chocolate or white chocolate?

And the most important question, I know you write science fiction. Have you always written it? Or have you written other stuff as well? Do tell!

mist of the blossom rain said...

Do you ever go back and look at your earlier posts?

Amanda the Aspiring said...

400 posts? O_O Wow. I think I just hit about 20. Heh...

Anyway, as for a question(or two):

Why the Eagle's Aerie/what prompted this name?

What's your favorite book of all time?
(that's my evil, difficult question. >=))

Congratulations on the award! =)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Four hundred is super. How long did it take you?

Haleine said...

Congratulations on your 400th post as well as your blogging award. I'm a newcomer to your site but I've really enjoyed what I've read thus far.

Edith F. said...

In the fickle world of the internet, I appreciate someone who sticks with their blog endeavor. Congrats, Golden Eagle.

My questions are: What is your favorite font for working on stories with? Single-space or double-space when you're drafting?

Old Kitty said...

400 posts!! WOW!!!!! Yay!!! And a lovely award too!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

Oooh Q&A!! Ok, here's mine!!

Who is/are your favourite author or authors (top 5!).

thank you!

Jules said...

With 400 hundred I expect you to act silly :) Q&A: 2 favorites, song and quote?

Congrats on both 400 and the award!
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow

Liz Pezzuto said...

Awesome! Congrats on 400 posts, and also the award! :)

My question: What's the one book (that is, already written by another author) that you wished you had written?

gideon 86 said...

SO FANTASTIC! Congrats on the award AND 400 posts. That is impressive.

Have a great weekend Golden.

That's for your wonderful support during challenge to finish my WIP.

Another thousand words today I should be finished by the end of the weekend. I hope so because I need to EDIT!


Colene Murphy said...

Holy snap!! Congratulations on both!!

Carol Kilgore said...

Congrats all around. I hope you're celebrating in real life, too. I'd also like to know your first name.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

400 posts - congratulations!
My question - I remember reading that you are not over 18. Really? No Way! You sound far too mature to be so young.

Mason Canyon said...

Congratulations on your 400th post and for the blog award. You definitely should be doing the happy dance.

What part of the U.S. do you live in?

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Wow, 400 posts! Congratulations!!!! That's wonderful. :-D I'm with Nancy...I'd like to know your first name. :)

Cinette said...

Congrats on your 400th! Here's to the next 400! (tips back wine glass) *(giggles)*

Jai Joshi said...

Congrats on your 400th post! And congrats on your award!

My question is this: If you were a tree then what tree would you be?


Charles Gramlich said...

Wow, that's impressive. Congrats.

laughingwolf said...

grats on the big 400, ge! :)

the big Q: what is your fave recipe [you like preparing]?

Anonymous said...

400 posts? Impressive. Most impressive. Here's a question, from one homeschool-survivor to another: How do you socialize in the real world? Or, if you'd rather: Why, on TV, did "The Incredible Hulk's" shirt always rip but his pants never did?

Summer Ross said...

I have an award for you on my blog

Simon Kewin said...

Congrats on the award and the 400 posts. Here's to 400 more!

The Words Crafter said...

*snaps*high-fives*jumping up and down*

Congratulations on the 400 and the award!!!!

I know you love science shows like Discovery Channel (me, too) and NOVA. Is there a tv show that you watch that has no redeeming value other than you simply enjoy it? Or a movie? Or a book?

brave chickens said...

Congrats Ms. Golden Eagle :P That's a massive achievement, espeically if you're actually posting up interesting and cool stuff that's not woolfluff.

My questions:
Which Harry Potter ability would you love to have?
Hermione or Luna? Which character do you like more?

Pk Hrezo said...

Wow! Congrats on 400! ANd, of course, for your much deserved award! Looking forward to 400 more! :)

Thank you!

I have on next to my bed, but I hate carrying things around; that's why my great ideas always slip away. ;)

Lydia: Thank you!

Karen: Wow. 200 amazing posts. :D

The Blogger: Thanks!

Holly: Thank you. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

That's horrible. 2 blogs in a row? Gosh.

Nicole: Thanks! :)

Heather: Thank you!

Malcolm: Thanks for questions!

Robyn: Thanks!

Emily: Good one!

Amanda: Well, I've been blogging for almost a year now . . . you'll get there yourself, eventually. :D

Thank you!

Susan: Almost a year. :P

Haleine: Thank you!

I'm glad you've been enjoying my posts. :)

Anything to support a fellow writer/blogger. :)

Into the final stretch, eh? Good luck with your novel!

Alex: Thank you!

Sharon: I can't believe I've come this far since my blog started out . . . it was so small before. :P

Cinette: Thanks! I hope, too, that there are at least another 400 hundred to come.

My question:

You are a girl ;), and you seem to enjoy a lot of stuff that many girls do not enjoy, such as science and math (stereotypical, I know, but that is just how it seems to be!). So, my question is, do you also like to do girly stuff? Like clothes shopping, makeup, jewelry, etc.?

The Golden Eagle said...

Jai: Thanks, on both accounts!

Charles: Thank you.

Laughingwolf: Thanks! :)

Milo: You were homeschooled? Awesome.

Summer: Thank you so much for awarding me, Summer!

Simon: Thank you! :)

Christian: Thanks!

The Words Crafter: Thank you! :D

(For the high-five, too.)

Brave chickens: Some of my posts have kind of been more woolfluff than actual, interesting content . . . but I'm trying to produce more of interest nowadays. :P

Pk: Thanks!

Chris: Thanks! And thanks for coming by, too.

Shaynie: Great question. :)

Joanna St. James said...

I was going to ask if you are a girl or a boy but most blogger seem to have you pegged as a girl
so are you a girl?
and how do you find time to blog and comment?

Congratulations on your achievement and awards you are one of the coolest around here.

Trisha said...

Yes, I totally forgive you, I think each of us should only have to accept a particular type of award the once. It takes a lot of work, mostly I think in deciding which bloggers to award the thing to in turn :D

The Golden Eagle said...

Joanna: Thank you for the compliment! :)

Trisha: Exactly--I'm glad you understand. It's so hard to choose who to award!

Thank you so much for the award, once again. :)
