A Vlog Post


Guess what day it is...?????  =)



My very first vlog post is now here!  Go ahead and see what I look like in front of a camera. ;)  hehe.  This was actually so much fun...if you are wondering if you should make a vlog post, do it.  Please.  And then send me the link 'cause I want to watch it too.  I want to see all your faces. =)

Thank you for "forcing" me into this.  Haha.  =)  That's what readers are for, isn't it?   And all the wonderful questions... I wish I could answer them all!  But anyway, I'm keeping you from the whole point of this post.  And you probably skipped reading this far anyway.  Well, be that way.  =P

Without further adeu........

Hmm?  Do you want me to make a sequel vlog post to answer the rest of the questions?  =)  *rubs my hands together*  Did anything about seeing me in person surprise you?  =)

As a side note, just in case you didn't notice, I have started making some subtle changes to the blog's design...if you see more changes within the next few days, please forgive my untidiness. =)  I'll do my best to get this done quickly and painlessly.  hehe.

AND GUESS WHAT?  We now have giveaway winners!  I'm so, so, so, so excited to announce...

The winner of The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser (paperback) is...  Savannah P!

The winner of Set Apart Femininity is...  Abi E!

And the international winner of The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser (ebook) is...   Diana!

Congratulations!  *throws confetti*  I will be contacting you soon with information on how to receive your prize. =)  And thank you to everyone else who entered... I only wish that I could send you all a gift.  But because I can't, here is a virtual hug for being such amazing readers.  *hugs*  I really am so very thankful for you all.

  1. Yay! :D This was sooo fun! I would love to see another Vlog post in the future if you do a sequel! :D I think those questions were super creative. Like I didn't expect someone to ask what you'd do if someone destroyed your work! LOL! Great job, it was super awesome! :D

  2. Your vlog is awesome, Hosanna!!! Love, love, love it! And I love your background. ;) And that shirt on you is so pretty! I mean you're super pretty anyways. ;) And YES, I would love another vlog. :) You're such a natural at vlogging. I was so awkward and not my real self...hehe. ;)

    1. Hahaha. Thank you, Hannah! =) I chose that room because it was the quietest...and then I realized how pretty the flowers were. =) Lol. Well, it sure worked out quite nicely. =) And it's my favorite shirt too... Thank you! =)

      No, it didn't feel awkward at all. Maybe it helped that I am comfortable with video chats...and it's almost the same thing. Except that I have to talk to myself. =P Haha. And, by the way, you looked lovely in your vlog. *hugs*

      I'm glad you enjoyed it! =)

  3. *is unsure if THIS Savannah won the giveaway, because I have no idea what name I entered under* :D

    This was SO fun, Hosanna! I loved watching your vlog (you're super pretty, by the way :)) - and you are a NATURAL at vlogging! I'm so awkward in front of a camera :D.

    Oh my goodness, if someone burned MY manuscript, I think I would pass out (okay, not really. BUT I'D BE SO UPSET.). But of course, since I'm a tad paranoid, I always have multiple copies of my story on the computer. 'Cause sometimes my laptop will shut down and take some of my work with it. Now I have a backup plan :D.

    1. YESSSSSS! You are the winner, Savannah! I was so excited when I saw your name appear as the selected winner. xD (I would be excited with anyone winning, but it was SAVANNAH!!) =) I'll contact you later today or tomorrow so you can get the book. =)

      Thank you so much! It was very fun making a vlog...after I finally got a place to do it. (not the pasture *sigh*) =)

      Me too! I have a copy of my novella on my documents and on my email. Just in case, you know. Things like that are important. If it disappeared...I might just cry. It would be so painful. I spent a year writing that thing!!!!! But...I hope I would be able to forgive that naughty person. =)

      Congrats, my friend! =)

    2. EEP HURRAY!! :D That's super exciting for me - I can't wait to have your book on my shelf! I can't remember if you know my email or not ... (it's (theperrans AT cox DOT net), in case you don't :))

      You're welcome! Yeah, it would have been pretty neat if you had done it in the pasture. But a horse slobbering on your laptop doesn't sound like the best idea :D.

      Thank you!! :)

    3. Yes! It's exciting for me too. xD hehe. Giveaways are actually so much fun, for some odd reason...maybe because "it's better to give than to receive"? =) (but receiving is fun too, Lol) And thank you for reminding me about the email address. =)

    4. I think that's why :D. I'm thinking about maybe doing a giveaway at some point. No idea when, but it'll probably happen *nods*.
      You're welcome! :)

    1. Awwww! I love you too, Julia! You are the sweetest. ♥ What would I do without you? *shudders* Thank you so very much. ♥

  5. YESSSS you posted the vlog!!!!!
    This was so fun to watch, Hosannna! (I know this is a bit of a weird comment, BUT YOUR HAIR IS SO PRETTY. Seriously, I love it)Something about you reminds me of our former Bible study leader...she has the kind of sweet, soft-spoken personality that you do. =)
    YES MANDISA ALL THE WAY. I looove her music! What are some of your favorite Mandisa songs?
    Do I want you to post another vlog?
    Um.
    Is that even a question?! XD Of COURSE I want you to post another vlog! Again, I enjoyed watching this video, and I would LOVE it if you would post another!!
    *hugs back* I'm thankful for YOU, Hosanna!!

    1. Oh Ariel! Your comment made me laugh. xD Lol! I knew that YOU would want me to post another vlog. ;) That wasn't a question at all, was it? =) hehehe

      I'm so glad you enjoyed the vlog! And thank you. =) I didn't expect you to comment on my hair, but thank you. xD It likes to get wavy naturally...for no reason at all. hehe. I'm so glad I look like your Bible study leader! That has to be a compliment. ;) I'm not quite sure that my personality is always very soft-spoken though. hehe

      Hmm....I really like "Lifeline" and "Broken Hallelujah" and "Leave it in the Valley". =) But YES!!! Mandisa is just a wonderful singer, and I love all of her songs. =) What are your favorites?

      You accepted my virtual hug! *squeals* Here's another one. ♥

      Delete
    2. Haha, glad it made you smile. =)
      You're very welcome! Kinda jealous...mine is most definitely not wavy. =p Oh, it is a compliment! You and our Bible study leader are both such awesome people. Yeah, I'm not soft-spoken all the time either. At least we know we will be heard. XD
      I've heard "Lifeline" many, many times (awesome song!)...I think I've heard "Broken Hallelujah" before (maybe ;))...and I'm pretty sure I've heard "Leave it in the Valley." I like "Joy Unspeakable" and "Temporary Fills"! Have you heard either of them before? Oh, have you heard her song called "Dear John"? The basic message of the song is Mandisa singing to a lost person, telling him, as the song says, 'there's freedom on the other side of things that keep us tied up and afraid.' I think you would like it! =)
      Well OF COURSE. =) I'll accept virtual hugs anytime!

    3. Oh Ariel!! I haven't seen a photo of you, but Savannah is just gorgeous! Being part Korean...you are just guaranteed to be lovely. =) hehe.

      "Joy Unspeakable" and "Dear John" are both amazing songs. =) I haven't heard the other one (or I don't remember it at this moment)...but now I shall. =) All of her songs are amazing though, aren't they?!

      Hehe. Well, I'm glad you're a hugger. xD

  6. You're a natural at doing vlogs, Hosanna! I can't believe that was your first one. You seem really sweet, and you're very pretty. =)

    And yes, I'd totally love to see another one if you do one! Vlogs are so neat. ;)

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Emily! For some reason, it's hard for me to realize that I have never met you in person. We somehow just became friends (in the blogosphere and out) so naturally. =)

      Hmm...isn't it your turn to do a vlog now??? =) I would love to see it. =) I'm so glad you enjoyed mine! ♥

  8. I loved watching your vlog, Hosanna!! :D It was a lot of fun to watch and learn some more about you. I definitely think you should do another one sometime. I'd enjoy watching it. =)
    I really like pink too. :) My favorite color is actually blue, but pink is definitely another great color, and I wear a lot of pink. ;)

    1. Pink and blue are awesome together, Rebekah. =) Blue was a favorite for a while...well, a second favorite. =) Pink was always higher. ;) I'm glad you enjoyed the vlog! And Happy Blogiversary to you as well! ♥

    2. Thank you, Hosanna!! :D That's cool that we started blogging around the same time. :)

  9. Ooooh! This was so fabulous to watch! I loved seeing your gorgeous face. I kept smiling at the video as if we were talking face to face and I was smiling at you - especially when you answered my questions. If it was up to me, you would make a part 2. I wouldn't have it any other way! X)

    My favourite of your blog posts was the Bookish thoughts discussion post! I felt so involved and like I could really learn a lot. I also loved your one about Kalem as it felt so open and honest and beautiful.

    Oh, and I think you would like the cover of one of my Bibles. It's brown and pink. X) The cover of the other one is green, which is *my* favourite colour.

    1. Hahahahaha! I'm glad I made you smile, Jordy. xD I enjoyed seeing your face last week...it was such a delight to hear your lovely voice and talk in "person." ♥ And I'm glad I got to some of your questions. =) I was forced to pick and choose which ones, but I hoped that I got to answer at least some from each of you. =)

      Yes! That is why I loved Bookish Thoughts as well. =) It is a blessing to actually interact and discuss topics with you all instead of just talking to you. =) And it was a subject that I was still brooding over, so it helped me get a grasp on what reading from a Godly perspective looks like. =)

      I'm sure I would. =) My Bible cover is blue with a butterfly on top. Haha...somehow I guessed green was your favorite. I do love the colors on your blog. =) Such good taste you have. =)

  10. *hugs* *squeals* You answered my questions!! Thank you! =D
    I loved this vlog! Isn't it fun when someone does a vlog, and then you can see what their real personality is? It's awesome! ;-D
    Have a wonderful day, and thank you again!

      I'm so glad you enjoyed it. =) Have a wonderful day to you too! =) (and your name is beautiful, btw!!)

    1. Oh, thank you, my sweet friend! ♥ I'm very thankful for you. =) I like the meaning of my name because of the good reminder that it brings to mind. "Glory to God who saves us!" I love those little reminders that point us back to Him. =)

  13. Awww, Hosannah, you're so sweet!!!! I loved watching this! You are very similar to what I imagined: A sweet, loving girl with a passion for telling others about what Jesus did for them! I hope you do more vlogs in the future. I love hearing your voice and seeing your face! *hugs*

    1. *hugs back* Thank you so much, sweet Ivy. While those qualities are not always present, I do strive to honor Him with my life. I was blessed by seeing your vlog as well...and how grateful I am to have such an encouraging friend like you who also wants your writing to honor Him. ♥
