Nights in Rodanthe

I read this novel way back in 2004, I fell in love with the story! I even convinced my husband (who's not into romance novel) to read it. This is an intense, passionate and memorable love story. At that time it entered my mind that someone should make a movie out of this novel. My wishes come true... coming this fall - Nights in Rodanthe - Richard Gere and Dianne Lane, a must see movie!

I'm trying hard to find the book and re-read it again. We had moved 5x since then, but I'm still hoping I could find it. I would like to read it again before I watch the movie.

Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her--a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teenaged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and Dr. Paul Flanner arrives. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives

Paid Blogging - What's behind the hype?

A lot of people are talking about paid blogging. So I ask my self is it really possible to get paid while blogging? I was skeptical at first but I still read and research about it. Learning to get paid to blog is not as complicated as I thought it is. Basically the way it works is find an advertiser-you blog- then-get-paid, it's like posting a normal blog but with monetary incentive. You get paid to blog for every word and every single sentences you write, what's cool than that! But this new phenomenon requires time, patience, persistent and promotion to succeed. It sound so easy to me, if only I have all the time in the world then I could be a successful big-earner blogger!

The hype on paid blogging is growing big and I am considering to monetize my blog. I think it's good to be rewarded after spending hours on blogging and blog hopping. I'll have money to pay a web space or domain (if I consider to do so), Internet use and maybe some extra to plan a vacation. Wow I am already dreaming!
