Now, you're probably wondering what I meant by celebration. I'm afraid I can't offer anything like giveaways, and I already do buttons/headers for free for anyone who asks, so I decided to open up a little Q&A session. I never really "introduced" myself to Campaigners, and for Campaigners and non-Campaigners alike, I thought some of you might like to know a bit more about me, or The Eagle's Aerial Perspective. I did this for 400 Followers and it seemed to work out well.

So for the rest of the week until next Monday I will be taking questions. I will answer them one week from today.

They can be about anything. Feel free to be random, ask what's right off the top of your head, bring up something you'd wondered in the back of your mind. And you can always come back during any time this week if something occurs to you later.

Have fun coming up with questions! I look forward to answering them. :)

(I know. Not a spectacular celebration, exactly. However, it's something I can do at the moment.)


And once again, thank you for reading this blog.

-----The Golden Eagle


Melissa Bradley said...

Congratulations on reaching 800+ followers. Here's to 800 more and that this blog will be around for a long, long time. :) I may not get here as often as I'd like, but I always enjoy your posts.

Mark Noce said...

Wow, that's a lot of folks! Congrats and keep it up:)

David Powers King said...

Sweetness! Congratulations. This is no small achievement. And you deserve it, having such an awesome blog. :)

Jess said...

Congrats! That's so cool! Great job!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Congratulations on the 800 followers! That is so great!
And I'm so bad at Q&A things... Which book - not necessarily your favorite - have you read that you would say is the best well-written? And if you had to pick a published author whose style you feel is close to yours, who would it be? :)

C D Meetens said...

Congratulations on reaching 800 followers - wow! And thanks for the link :).

Sarah Pearson said...

That's one heck of an achievement, congratulations. Here's to the next 800 :-)

Mary Mary said...

Congrats to you! May you get 800 more!

Old Kitty said...

YAYYAYAYAYAYAYAYYAY!! 804 followers and growing!! Fantastic!!

Ok: question!! Erm.. if you weren't a Golden Eagle and apart from Condors (yay!) what other creature would your alter ego be?

If that's been asked before - darn! so my second question is:

Einstein's theory of special relativity in the light (ahem) of the Cern experiment. Excited?!?!?

:-) Take care

KarenG said...

Wow! Your blog is really growing fast! Well done to a nice and deserving person!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Questions? Um... what books do you want to read next? Or movies. Or both!

Michael Offutt said...

Wow...congratulations Eagle.

Carrie Butler said...

Congratulations, Eagle! That's so exciting! :)

P.S. Thanks for linking to me. :D

Emily Rose said...

Q&A question: What is your favorite genre to write?

Anonymous said...


Umm... Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Donna K. Weaver said...

Congrats. Wow. 800!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I believe you are homeschooled, right? What literature reads would you recommend to all students?

Lynda R Young said...

Congrats on all those wonderful followers.

Question: If you could go anywhere, where would be the perfect place to live?

Charles Gramlich said...

Good work!

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

whoa! congratulations!!

Anonymous said...

Congrats on the milestone! I was approaching 600 when my blog got all wacky and had to begin a new one. I'm still trying to make it up to 100 over there.

Rob-bear said...

Well done, Eagle. It appears you appeal to a broad range of readers.

I've got a question to DIE for...
What is your personal name?

If that's a Q absolutely too undesirable, I've got something much more tastier for you to chew on.

Having been adopted from a trans-Pacific world and living "upon a fault line(as you call it)" for a set amount of years(or so?), my main wonder is your honest opinion on the views of the many ethnicities you've come across in your years on the Fault.

Blacks, Spanish, perhaps a spice of irish there and russian-americans here--
What were some of the interactions what is collective known as American culture? What is your opinion on the current state of american society, in comparison to China (I've got some opinions myself, say on these russia-china science initiatives vs. the USA, for example)?

Ethnicity is so fun to poke around in. America is extra special, it not only has a general history embedded into its individuals, but it also has a cauldron of cultures and races who themselves have a history that guides the individual's actions on a day-to-day basis, Positively and negatively.

You must have some opinions on American culture, on its present form and what it should be. Could be.

The Qs:
What is your opinion on american culture?
On your day-to-day interaction with its ethnicities?
And if you happen to be in a decision-making position of power, what would you do to make America what it "should be?"
And how different is your experience from the first time you interacted with this trans-atlantic nation?
My questions orient from the small(interaction with ethnicities) to the large(interactions with the national way of life).

or you can simply answer the first Q and tell us your name. :)

& congrats.
You can use your power for good or for evil, it is up to yooou...


Jake Henegan said...


Here are two questions:

First, which character, in any book, is the most like you? (and why)

Second, what object on/in your desk/shelf/room defines you most as a person?

Deborah Walker said...

Congratulations Eagle. That's wonderful.

My question is: How much time do you spend blogging. It must be a lot, I reckon. Whatever a 'lot' is. What keeps you motivated?

Simon Kewin said...

Congrats Golden Eagle - a great achievement.

Shiraz Akhtar said...

Congratulations! It's not a small achievement and you truly deserve it.

BornStoryteller said...

Mazel Tov! Numbers of followers like this must make you feel warm and fuzzy (and I'm not being sarcastic).

Q: since you have so many followers...if you had us all in one location and you were our Queen (in reality), what type of Queen would you be and what would be your first Royal Command of us?

Tale Spinning

Clarissa Draper said...

Yay! Congrats.

Now for a question: What's the most amazing natural site/sight you've ever seen? (For example, Northern Lights or Niagara Falls, or a polar bear...)

....Petty Witter said...

Well done on all those followers, such a big achievement, its well deserved.

I'd like to know if you had to name one campaign you feel strongly about what would it be - animal rights, child abuse, racism etc.

Holly Ruggiero said...

That''s awesome. Congratulations.

Misha said...

wow! congrats on the 800 followers!

Here's to the next 800.

Can't think of any questions yet, but will put some thought into it.

Susan Fields said...

First of all - congrats on 800 followers!!!

I did one of these Q&As on my blog before and it was a lot of fun. Here's my question (I hope it hasn't already been asked): What is the most important piece of writing advice you've ever received?

Flying high in the sky.... said...

Congratulations!!!! awesome!

Jen Chandler said...

Super awesome congrats on all the followers!!! That is staggering. Seriously!

Have a wonderful week!

Michael Di Gesu said...

SInce I am one of the first few hundred to follow you, I am not surprised you hit over 800 friends.


I am inching to 500 and I hope to make it for my blogoversary at the end of next month.

Your posts are always informative and insightful. It is refreshing to see such an intelligent and well read young woman. I still can't believe how young you are, but this fact gives me so much hope for the future, knowing there are young men and woman like you.

Deniz Bevan said...
