Karenne usually does them at the does them at the start of the month but she's running behind this month i should have got my 1 year as well and 3000 posts. I'll ask her for you.

Congratulations Hollie on the 3000 posts. I got my one year I'm pretty sure at the start of the August even though I joined in July. Definitely ask her though Hollie because I can't really remember. LOL

It's no biggie. I was just curious. I don't want her to feel rushed over something as little as that. LOL!

Congrats Hollie on the 3K! I might make 500 by the end of the year. LOL

Like Bec said, all awards are given at the beginning of the month although usually year awards are given during the month of the anniversary, but sometimes things get really busy for Karenne, so they end up late. You should get it by next month though. I asked once about them and that was it. I was surprised that I didn't get my head chewed off cause she was busy when I asked. These days I just remind her that she has to make a new posting award since I'm the first one to hit the new numbers. I also get a *snort* or the :tt2: from her when I mention it and she reminds me that I'm making more work for her. I just end up telling her that she wubs me though and that's why she'll make them. LOL!

ChristieSilvers
October 22nd, 2008, 06:46 PM
I could never do book reviews. If I'm not interested in a book it takes me foooorrrever to get through it. Then I'd have to tell someone that it sucked. Nope, couldn't do it.

Dani
October 22nd, 2008, 10:09 PM
I feel the same way about reviewing too Christie. I've been asked to review before and asked Karenne about it (before I was asked about reviewing). I thought about it and was going to do it, but with my son and all the crud that was happening led me not to do it. I also realized that I would not like telling people their books weren't good, so I help Karenne in a different way with the reviews. I like that much better too. :)

ChristieSilvers
October 22nd, 2008, 10:30 PM
I know how nerve-wrecking it is to wait for a review on your book. I just couldn't do that to another writer. There's butterfies and jitters in your stomach. When you see that email saying your review is ready, well, your heart just skips a beat and your stomach jumps into your throat.

Half the time I'm tempted not to even open the emails. LOL But, as a writer you have to remember that every person has their own ideals about what is a "good" book. What one person may hate, another could love. You just never know.

Dani
October 22nd, 2008, 10:45 PM
Ain't that the truth. I've read book that I love and others bash it. I've also disliked other books that I see people gush over. You can't win them all.

ChristieSilvers

I enjoy reviewing -mostly. I don't like to give bad reviews and i always try and find something positive about a book. I know about nerves it takes a few weeks from when i first write a review for it to go on to the site and I can tell the author then I wait to hear back from them not that a lot of authors reply.

ChristieSilvers
October 23rd, 2008, 09:58 AM
I always respond (whether they liked it or not) and thank them for their time. I figure it's better to be gracious than to be mad about a bad review. LOL

I've been working for a very good Charity place yesterday and today. It's a place where people less fortunate can buy cheap groceries. The people come in and can get free bread and vegetables but you have to give a gold coin donation for them. Some people don't even give the gold coin donation and when you ask them nicely they just want to argue with you. It just gets so frustrating. Everyone of the workers is a volunteer and these people want to get snarky. One of the ladies I was working with was going to tell this one old lady to get out because she was being so rude and arguing with them and apparently she's argued with them three times this week. LOL
