I read quite a few, but I'll specifically mention "How Michael Phelps saved the Olympics" and "Harlequin Party Report."

I love how personal the blog can hit you. I read the one about the "Firsts" and the one about seeing your family in movies and such. I loved the one about the blogger's firsts. I think that all girls love remembering these things because it just shows that we're growing up. There's still many "firsts" i haven't experienced myself. haha. Kind of a late bloomer i guess. anyways, please enter me in the contest. thanks. =)

JenniferY said...

I read the post about "Firsts" and commented on a couple of my firsts.

I also read Fiona Lowe's post about "All in the Family" where she discusses films and books that she relates to and why.

I loved the post on "Firsts" - it brought back some very fun memories. I also liked "All in the Family" for the same reason!

Great blog! I had never been there before. I commented on Firsts as well and enjoyed reading the post called All in the Family since I watch lots of movies.

My Kingdom for a Book said...

I read her blogs about first loves and comfort reading. They both really struck a note with me. I hadn't thought about my first kiss for a long time, and it was fun to think back to my first romance novel. I also have a stack of books by my bed--I can't fathom not having something to read!

I had a lot of fun reading the posts about her son's stand up comedy and ideas, too. Thanks for the link, the giveaway, and BBAW!

wordlily said...

I read
• Firsts,
• All In The Family ~ by Fiona Lowe, and
• Where do you get your ideas? - Kate Walker.

I commented on the last one, in which Walker talks about where she gets ideas for books.

All in the Family is a post about how we as consumers recognize our family in books and films.

And Firsts is about first love, first kiss, first romance ...

Amanda said...

I read the post Firsts and commented on it. It's about our first kiss, first love, first romance novel we read. I also Read All in the Family about how we often can find similarities between movie and book characters and members of our own families and perhaps friends. Thanks for the giveaway! awalworth19(at)gmail(dot)com

Aerin said...

SO glad you sent me over there - did you know Susanna Carr has a post about Olympians who are on your "men to do" list????? YIKES! I don't even have a men to do list! (Or, I didn't, before reading that post.)

And then I went back and read the post from my birthday, and commented on it. It's by Kate Walker, called 12 points for writing romance, and was actually hugely informative.

Madeleine said...

I entered 2 posts, one on the first...and one on comfort reads

I agree with many about the post ALL IN THE FAMILLY I often find resemblances to my family members and friends in books sometimes good and sometimes not so good

Marilyn Shoemaker said...

Blueviolet, Cindy and Tawny posts but the first one by Donna Alward I loved; loved not only the post but love her books as well.

Dina said...

So sorry, deleted to repost, I errored, lol.Shouldn't try to type with headache going on.

I visit there daily. :)

I've read and commented at these blogs: today Firsts by Tawny Weber... and Thursday, September 11, 2008 Can I Tempt You?



Book Spot said...

I read th about Jinx--which I've seen somewhere lately but I forget where--and then I read about Shayla Black's new book...that I'm looking up more info on right now :)

Nise' said...

Read Firsts and Research is Fun! Commented on Firsts.

Kristina said...

I read Firsts and All in the Family. I commented on Firsts!

Natasha said...

I read firsts...It detailed her first love, first kiss (same person), and her first romance novel love! (The first kiss made me chuckle, lol).
I also read Where do you get your ideas ? - Kate Walker...It details the process Kate uses to find inspiration/ideas for her writing (I laughed when I found out she once wrote a book just to incorporate the line: "I don't know who the hell you are, but you're certainly not my wife!") - I commented on this one (I'm Jay...well I'm not, my son is, lol)

Icedream said...

I read Where Do You Get Your Ideas by Kate Walker and I read and commented on My Favourite Time of Year by Donna Alward

Cheryl (akaCheri) said...

Tote Bags'n'Blogs is one of my favorite blogs, and I visit there regularly. Today I read and commented on the All in the Family article about books and movies. I also enjoyed Tawny's and Megan's articles, and I left a comment for Christina on hers. And don't you think the cover for Anna Campbell's book is wonderful?

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I read Firsts and "All In The Family ~ by Fiona Lowe" as well. All in the Family is the one that I left a commen on. :)


windycindy said...

Hi, I enjoyed Christina Hollis' article. She talks about how every author gets at least one wonderful moment ~ that perfect phrase, a love story clicks or the call that comes to buy your work. Then, there are times of disappointment! She asks if anyone ever lets their heroine take the brunt of the down times?! I found that very interesting. Thanks, Cindi

Jena said...

I read "Firsts"--what a great first kiss description--and Anna Gracie's "Research Is Fun!" in which Gracie describes a research trip, which was supposed to be a "quickie" , to a foundling hospital and where she discovered a display of trinkets left for the babies by their mothers, which supplied the basis for a story in her book. (comments on both)

Cindy W said...

Firsts and All in the Family.

Re: First, How do you not remember your first romance book? I read Perfect by Judith McNaught and still remember it perfectly!!

Tammy said...

I read All in the Family and Research is Fun, and left a comment on Research.

Loved the part of Family when she talks about While You Were Sleeping -- the scene for me was when the family was in church. That one is MY family in public!

CrystalGB said...

I read Tawny Webber's Firsts post and Anna Campbell's Can I Tempt You? post.
I love this blog. They have great posts by some amazing authors.

Rebekah (the_littleminx) said...

That's such a great blog. I read and commented on the Anne McAllister post in which she discussed book dedications. I also read and left a comment on Susanna Carr's "Men to Do" post. Both were excellent!


Sunny said...

I read the post about Firsts (and commented on that one) and I also read the post about All in the true! Love it when books/movies connect like that.


Maureen said...

I read Anna Campbell's post about her upcoming book and posted on Anne Gracie's post about orphanage's where mother's had to leave a token behind with their child so the child could be identified if she decided not to give him/her up.

kimmyl said...

That Vital Spark - Christina Hollis and
