1,000 posts later....[psssst, there's a contest!]

The inspiration for "Trelaina", a character from the 70's/80's anime show, Starblazers.

On January 1, 2010, I will have had my blog up and running for 4 years. Back in those days, I had even less to say than I do now, so it was a lot of pictures and quotes and silly things. Nowadays I hope I'm a tad bit more interesting LOL. After all this time, I still enjoy it, even if I don't do it every single day. I like having the freedom to blog when I want to, if and when I want to. And it's all about me, which I like the best *g*

This picture below is not my original blog header, but it was one I first had some input on. Yeah, a bit of an eyesore, but I loved these colors back then. Just probably not a good idea to put them together. Still, I have rather fond memories of my old layout, and the excitement I felt when I had it customized.



And not only have I been blogging for 4 years, this is actually my 1,000th published post. Now 4 years of blogging should come closer to 1460 posts, but well, I guess I didn't always blog all that often. Sometimes it's not easy to think of things to talk about, believe it or not. (At least for me). Unless it's all about Nickelback or Josh Bernstein or Suzanne Brockmann's books. Then I could go on for days....


Josh

(smart and sexy)

Now I know you're just here for the contest, so let's get started. First up, prizes. I thought long and hard, and then said forget it. Let's make it simple, stupid. 4 prizes, 4 winners. So, here are the goodies:


1. $50 Amazon gift card

2. $25 Barnes & Noble/Borders/BAM giftcard (winner selects which bookstore)

3. $25 restaurant gift card (Maggiano's, Cheesecake Factory, Outback, etc)

4. book of choice, up to $10 value



My Nathan....

For awhile there, I had a bit of an obsession, er, crush, on Mr. Kamp. Just a tiny one that lasted through several book covers (okay, yes, I have bought books just because he was on the cover!)

Me from the 2nd annual Lori Foster event

As you can see I'm not very photogenic or camera-friendly, but here's one that is halfway decent I thought I'd share. I'm holding the basket I made for the raffle drawing. It's so much fun to put these together. One of my favorite things about the event.

Next up, questions. You know I love my questions, and so I'll only ask four of them. And instead of asking about myself, which is rather predictable, I'll ask them about you, so that way it's not just a copy and paste post.

1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?

2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. Please be specific*

3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? (*same as #2)

4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter, iPhone, etc. I'd love to know *g*


Contest rules: Contest will end @ noon CST on Sunday, January 3, 2010 and will be announced within 24 hours. All questions must be answered to qualify. Contest is open to all, as long as they can receive mail (or the equivalent gift - not sure about purchasing international giftcards but I'll figure something out). Please do not leave your email address in your post. Winners are responsible for contacting me.

So happy anniversary to me! Thank you ALL for being a part of my little place on earth. I've met so many new people over these past 4 years. Some have moved on (I miss Mailyn!), others are still around. Each one has been a blessing :) And I especially want to thank the amazing bookpimps out there (you know who you are!) for being me some of the best book suggestions I could ask for. Love you guys, srsly. Hope to know you for at least another 4 years.


Good luck & Happy New Year!!!!

    3. *Going over to Goodreads to ponder*

  8. Happy Blogiversary...wow 4,000 posts...you rock!!! LOL

    1. Movie: I don't get a chance to see a lot of movies...and when I do it is mostly Disney/Pixar movies. So as far as children movies go...I would have to say "Up."

    3. Books: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

    4. Addiction: besides chocolate...would be my reading blogs I am subscribed to in Google Reader. Can't go a day without checking up on what people are reading and doing.


  9. Congrats on your 1000 post! That's quite an accomplishment:-) In answer to your questions.
    1. Recommended Movie -- Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey, Jr.. The movie is great and he and Jude Law are wonderful. I also really liked Star Trek.

    3. Favorite Book -- Joey W. Hill's "Natural Law" though it came out several years ago, I just discovered it. For a more current read, I really liked Claire Thompson's "Two Masters For Alex".

  14. Congrats Stacy!! And your picture is great! Nice to finally put a face with the name!
    So now to the questions, you asked some tough ones, I have multiple answers I could give for each, but I'll narrow it down to one :)

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?
    I saw "The Blindside" with Sandra Bullock, it was a great "feel good" movie the whole family can enjoy. Sandra Bullock was wonderful, I wouldn't be surprised if she gets an Oscar nod for it!

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. Please be specific*
    My kids actually have me hooked on "Party In The USA" by Miley Cyrus. It's got a great beat and is good music to dance to while I am cleaning around the house.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? (*same as #2)
    This was a tough one, there were so many that I liked! But I'd have to say "Rescue Me" by Christy Reece.

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter, iPhone, etc. I'd love to know *g*
    Reading my romance novels is definitely my favorite addiction! And I do call it an addiction because I feel myself getting nervous when I am close to finishing a book and I don't have anything else to read next! (My hubby would call it an addiction too, that's where the extra money goes, to buy me new books) *VGB*

  17. Happy Anniversary, Stacy!! You don't have to enter me but I thought it would be fun to answer the questions :)

    1. New Moon. Loved it, seen it three times.

    2. Left to Lie by Bobby Long. he is absolutely AMAZING. He's not signed, but so talented. This song gives me goose bumps.

    3. Halfway to the Grave by Jeanine Frost. I have you to thank for my new obsession with her and her books. :)

    4. Hands down, Facebook. I used to hate it. I thought it was confusing and not user friendly. I was devoted to myspace but once I spent some time on Facebook, I became addicted.

    Twitter has definitely became an addiction this year ;)


  19. Congrats on your 4 years of blogging!

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?

    I'm going to say Avatar. It almost doesn't have a script, but you have to see it for the special effects. It's spectacular on a 3D cinema!

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG.

    Carry Out feat. Justin Timberlake by Timbaland. I just can't get this song out of my head.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it?

    Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. I love this series and it just keeps getting better and better.

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter, iPhone, etc.

    It would probably be internet, can't live without it, but my ipod also is very important.


  20. 1. Movie: I thought "Gran Torino" was the most powerful movie I saw this year. I laughed, I cried and I was once again amazed at Clint Eastwood's power and restraint as both an actor and director.
    2."Stay" by Sugarland.
    3."The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker" by Leanna Renee Hieber. It is beautifully written.
    4. Facebook and Watercolor Class.


  21. Happy Anniversary!
    1) Michael Jackson - This is It. Simply because it was such a fascinating behind the scenes look at his work. I never realized everthing that went into a concert - and this was only a glimpse. (Ok - if that isn't technically considered a "movie", I have to say Harry Potter VI)
    2) Song. Older - but I still love Viva La Vida. Fun beat.
    3) Favorite book - boy this is a tuffy. So many - and I can only pick one??? I'll pick Tails of Love anthology (Lori Foster and others) - adored so many of those stories - plus it helps the animals! Man's Best Friend by Lori was my fave story - and one of my fave SBC to date!
    4) Addiction - Reading of course!
    Congrats - and looking forward to many more years!
    Kathy

  23. Stacy - You are one of my favorite bloggers! Here's to another four years of fun and interesting posts!!

    You are very generous to give such wonderful prizes! I've enjoyed reading everyone's answers so far!

    Hugs,
    Janice Maynard

    You don't have to enter me, but let me see... hmmm...
    1) The newest Star Trek where you see the characters in the past. Fun!
    2) I've been listening to Christmas nonstop... so I'll say "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey.
    3) I read 99% fiction, but because I have always been interested in the Kennedys, I bought True Compass by Edward Kennedy. It was a fascinating, intimate portrait of his life and what it meant to grow up in that environment. There was some political stuff in there, of course, but what I enjoyed most was hearing him talk about people who were family to him but famous people to most of us. Very well written!
    4) I love Facebook, though my time is limited. I Twitter some, but not as much as FB. Does chocolate count as an addiction??? :)


  24. Congrats on your 1,000th posts!!

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year you would recommend.

    I do not watch many movies, but I did go see The Blind Side. I would recommend it, I really enjoyed it. A true story that has had a happy ending.

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist!

    My favorite song is Cowboy In Me sung by Tim McGraw. I love this song because of what the words say , most people can relate to them.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it!!

    Gosh, I have so many, but I just finished A Duke of Her Own by Eloisa James. Historicals were my first romances to read and I still love them.

    4. What is one of your favorite addictions??

    Browsing the internet, mainly yahoo groups and blogging with the authors about their books, etc. (of course the whole time drinking coffee and eating chocolate :))


  25. 1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?

    Definitely Avatar. You have to watch it in 3D. It's amazing.

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. Please be specific*

    Morning after Dark by Timbaland.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? (*same as #2)

    Has to be Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. Her series just keeps getting better and better. Honorable mention to Angel's Blood by same author.

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions?

    I discovered e-books this year! I can't stop downloading!

    Happy Blogiversary! And congrats!


  26. Happy blogiversary,Stacy. I have never been on your blog before but have read your emails on Romancejunkies.
    1. My fav movie this holiday season: a Christmas Carol
    2. I have a few favs but like: the Cowboy Way by tim McGraw
    3. Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr
    4. Facebook


  27. Stacy congratulations on 4 years of blogging. Here's to many more.

    As to the questions:

    1 Movie I would reccomend---the latest is Up In The Air....very interesting look into the lives of the characters in this one and George Clooney is in it. Many movies that get Oscar buzz and nominations I just don't get the attraction to them but this one I get.

    2. Song I am currently hooked on. Two come to mind "Cryin' For You" by Toby Keith...this is his tribute to his friend Waymon Tisdale who died earlier this year....but when I hear it I think of a couple of people who are dear to me that have passed on. Second song is "Sara Smile" a remake of the classic 70's sony by Jimmy Wayne and he even got Hall and Oats to sing backup.

    3. Favorite book of the year. This is tough because I have read a lot of good books this year but I would say the trilogy of Black CAT books by Leslie Parrish, Fade To Black, Pitch Black and Black At Heart. All three were wonderful and I think these are the kind of books this author was meant to write.

    4 Latest addiction is watching whole series of tv shows on DVD. Right now I am on the 1st season of Law and Order Criminal Intent and the 3rd season of Bones.

    Hope to see you in blogville for many more years Stacy.


  28. Wow, Stacy, huge congrats to you! I know how hard it is to keep a blog going, and especially to keep it fresh and interesting. But I continue to enjoy (via my Google reader) your insights, thoughts, and reviews, so well done!

    The Time Traveler's Wife. I saw the movie first (because I have a girl-crush on Rachel McAdams and I had to see it ASAP) and loved it! I read the book shortly after and loved it too. I only wish that the ending in the book would have been in the movie.

    Bad to the Bone by Jeri Smith-Ready. I am a devoted fan to her crack-cocaine fiction.

    Speaking of which. [ahem] Writing, m'dear. Always the words.


  40. Happy 4 year Blogiversary, Stacy!

    1. I totally could pimp both New Moon and Star Trek. Loved both!

    2. I love Defying Gravity by Kristin Chenoweth & Idina Menzel from the Wicked soundtrack. I love the entire soundtrack, but that is my favorite song right now.

    3. I just discovered Lisa Kleypas this year and pick Seduce Me at Sunrise as one of my favorite books of the year. Also loved all the Black CAT books by Leslie Parrish and Faerie Fate (ARC) by Silver James.

    4. I'm totally addicted to my new HTC Droid phone. It is as close to the iphone as I can get with Verizon.


  41. Happy Anniversay, Stacy, and thanks for such a generous contest!

    1)I would recommend "Star Trek," "The Proposal," "District 9," and "Avatar." Very different movies, but they were my favorites for different reasons.

    2)My current favorite song is "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys because I LOVE New York City!

    3)Favorite book of 2009 is a really hard question. THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett & GONE by Michael Grant. (Along with some other YA fantasy novels.)

    4)My favorite addiction is the internet & blogs. :)


  42. Congrats on your blogoversary! Time has really flown! Here are my answers....

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend? District 9

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. An oldie, but a goodie......I Want to Be Sedated by the Ramones

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter--even though I don't think what I have to say is overly exciting.


  43. Happy 1000th post. I can't even imagine having that much to say. I bow down :)

    I haven't seen that many movies this year. I really want to see Sherlock Holmes, but I haven't seen it yet so to answer your first question I think I would have to recommend The Proposal with Sandra Bullock. Yes it was predictable, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

    It's funny that you should ask about my current favorite song. It's actually one I rediscovered last week while putting together fav Christmas songs. It is Sweet Surrendy by Sarah McLachlan from the Fumbling Towards Ecstasy CD. I forgot how much I love love love it even though it is so old now.

    Hands down my favorite book is Deeper by Megan Hart, followed closely by Laid Bare by Lauren Dane. I discovered both of these authors this year, in addition to Jaci Burton's Wild Riders series (especially Riding Temptation)....asking about my favorite book quickly becomes books...how can I possibly choose just one?

    My favorite addiction this year...blogging. Can't tell you how many hours I have spent blogging this year, and I have enjoyed each and every one immensely!


  44. Happy Blogiversay!! Isn't it amazing how fast time goes! And isn't it also amazing - and wonderful - how close we can feel to other bloggers - people who we might never meet in RL are just important as people in our every day life.

    And *g* now for answers!
    Movie of the year:I get to about 2 or 3 movies a year. And this year I saw two great ones - Star Trek and Avatar. Hmmm - I sense a theme there.

    Current Song: I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas

    Favourite book - The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie written by Jennifer Ashley

    Favourite Addiction: Bogle/Word Twist

    Atonement, because it was just BEAUTIFUL.

    I Need You Now by Lady Antebellum. There is a desperation in this song that realy touches me.


    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009?

    Perfect Chemistry by Susane Elkemes... amazing book. Can't wait for the sequel in april (although I doubt it can be as good as this one). Thx for the recommendation btw ;-)

    Congrats again !! *\o/*


  51. Happy Blogiversary, Stacy! I love your blog and hope you'll continue to be here for many years to come.

    Wow! Great prizes! Here are my answers:

    1) I'd recommend The Blind Side. It's one of the best movies I've seen in some time. Loved it!

    2) Alright by Darius Rucker. Great, great song!

    3) Captive of Sin by Anna Campbell.

    4) I'm addicted to my camera. Seriously, it goes with me everywhere!


  52. Yay, happy blogiversary, Stacy! (Heh - not sure on the word, but who cares, right?) 1,000 posts is very impressive! Congratulations :D
    As for your questions...

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?
    Hands down, The Blind Side. I've loved "the Michael Oher" story when I first heard about him in the fall of 2006. The NYT article made me cry, the movie trailer in 2009 made me cry (every time I saw it) - and yes, I cried when I watched the movie too. But it was good.
    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. Please be specific*
    Ack - I'm way too fickle for this... I have music ADD so how about one of the most recent songs I downloaded? (Thank you Amazon) - Drop It Low by Ester Dean.
    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? (*same as #2)
    One of my favorite books of 2009? :X I'm going with three. Relentless by Lauren Dane. Instant Gratification by Jill Shlvis. Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas. They're all different, and I loved them equally.
    4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter, iPhone, etc. I'd love to know *g*
    Twitter, reading... and... well you asked for it - but I'm telling you this is the spawn of satan. Bubble spinner. http://www.bubblespinner.com/
    :)


  53. wowza! 1000 posts? You're prolific. :) Here's to a few thousand more.

    My answers...

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?

    Even though it came out before this year, I really enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire. It made me sit on the edge of my seat, laugh, cry, and had a happy ending despite all the bad stuff.

    2. Current favorite song.

    I don't listen to the radio and I am completely and utterly out of touch with current music. So anything I have to contribute is going to be eclectic, world music stuff. heh. Current fav song is probably N'Teri by Habib Koite on the album Afriki. You can hear a sample here.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009?

    Hard to choose. I probably have to say Written on Your Skin by Meredith Duran. She really has been a great find of 2009.

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions?
    Surfing the internet on my little i-pod touch. Even though it takes twice as long to scroll, it's just so cute and handy.


  54. 1. My favorite movie: Hangover.
    2. Favorite song: STAY by Sugarland
    3. All the LUCKY SERIES by Carly Phillips. this was a hard one..I have too many favorites.
    4. Books first than comes chocolate. I am Susan L.


  55. Happy anniversary Stacy! Here's to many more years of blogging to come.

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?
    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and I also liked Mamma Mia.

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a song.
    My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. I like the beat of it.

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it?
    "Smooth Talking Stranger" (contemporary) by Lisa Kleypas. I just wish she would write the youngest brothers book. I also liked "Tempt Me At Twilight" (historical) by Lisa Kleypas.

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions?

    Buying books! I can't get enough, no matter how high my TBR pile is.


  56. Happy Blogiversay Stacy! And you are definitely photogenic. I'm so glad that I found your blog, even if my TBR list is a little (OK, a lot :) bigger from all the books you pimp *grin*

    And thank you so much for making your contest open to all :) OK, anwers!

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?
    I've just seen Avatar in 3D and...WOW 3D has come so far since Moonwalker! I'd say see Avatar for the 3D (although the movie itself is very good :)

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist. I want a SONG. Please be specific*
    I have two. Don't Stop Believing by the Glee cast. And What About Now by Westlife. Hey, I never said I was cool *grin* They just...make me feel, which is always good!

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it? (*same as #2)
    I've got two :) Melusine by Sarah Monette and Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier. Both books were mind-blowingly good...I didn't want to put them down. It was so amazing to be so engrossed in a book, invested in the characters. I *heart* the two authors!

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions? Twitter, iPhone, etc. I'd love to know *g*
    I'm just about to buy an iPhone so that I can FINALLY read eBooks. Currently, I love my new computer and it's broadband connection. I can whizz around the computer. And it's introduced me to YouTube! How did I survive for so long without YouTube?

    Good luck all and thank you Stacy!


  57. Happy Blog Anniversary & thousandth post, Stacy!

    Here are my answers to your questions:

    1. What movie that you've seen in the last year would you recommend?

    Surprisingly, I haven't been to the movies much, but I'd have to go with Whip It. It was great fun and I really enjoyed it.

    2. Current favorite song. Not artist.

    I always have such a hard time choosing a favorite song. I guess I'd go with the song Free (as recorded by Seal on his album Soul). It's a cover, but I love his version!

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it?

    I'll go with Kiss and Tell by Suzanne Brockmann. I picked it up at the library and then had to read the rest of the series!

    4. What's one of your favorite addictions?

    I am so easily addicted to things. I'd have to say my favorite addiction is buying books! I just can't stop. I love visiting bookstores and buying books :-)

    Thanks for doing the contest, Stacy.

    1. The movie that I've seen in the last year that I would undoubtedly recommend (with copious amounts of unashamed fangirling) would have to be Avatar. It has it all, story, characters, and jaw dropping gorgeous CG. It is an eye fest that cannot be missed!

    2. My current favorite song is Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machines. It is the perfect song to listen to while I'm book reading, beautiful and mellow with a great drum beat. :)

    3. One of my favorite books of 2009 would have to be Coyote's Mate by Lora Leigh. The characters of Anya and Del-Rey simply touched my heart. I was on cloud 9 for days after reading this book!

    4. One of my favorite addictions would have to be Twitter right now. Tweeting is surprisingly so much fun! LOL, I would have never thought I would get addicted but yes, newbie twitter-holic here. :D


  62. Happy Blogiversary Stacy!

    3. What was one of your favorite books of 2009? Who wrote it?
