Nice site you have there I’ve been hinavg a bit of success lately using ‘yourkeyword home’, so in your case you could try ‘cleaning home’ – if you try and put too many keywords in it looks a bit spammy imo. The company name could just about work too. It’s definately something to consider, as it’s a link that appears on every page and possibly more importantly, towards the top of the page too – this will be next post I think – content source ordering.

This is an itenresting income stream. I already heard about Review Stream before…during the time when Ciao was still open to Pinoys.

Great story, Budgielover. I was completely enthralled from beginning to end. I know that you normally write hobbit stories. But if you ever decided to go elvish full-time, we elf writers would be honored to have you in our ranks.

Until such time (if it ever occurs), you will be my favorite hobbit writer. :)

Author Reply: Hi, LKK! I am finally catching up on answering reviews, and wanted to thank you for your kind words. To say you were 'completely enthralled' is such a compliment - better than being paid! Thank you for the invitation to go elvish - I think I might visit now and then! *grins* (Like a hobbit, however, I would eat all the biscuits, drink the ale, thank you politely and take a nap under the table.)

I simply loved Aragorn and Legolas in this one. I always enjoy your hobbits, but this was such a great Legolas story. I liked the way Gimli welcomed Legolas back by taking his watch and telling him how proud he was of him. All in all, a very enjoyable read.

Author Reply: Hello again, GW! Thank you for your review, and for telling me that you liked that scene between Gimli and Legolas. I found out that writing Elves is very difficult - one can't play with their dignity like one can with the hobbits. Most educational!

OHHHH! What a wonderful story! I positively love it, especially the part at the end. Do you have any more stories? I'm going to check right now! Wonder-filled story! Thanks for writing it!
Galimeril ;D

Author Reply: Hullo, Galimeril. Thank you for your kind words and for letting me know you enjoyed "The Forest Has Eyes." I appreciate the review. I do indeed have many more stories (around 30?), all of which are posted on SOA. I also have just launched my own website,
and invite you to check it out. Thanks very much!

Budgie, I'm just in awe of how this story evolved. You should be very proud.

Author Reply: Thank you so much! After I got done whining and cringing and complaining, it flowed pretty easily. (After I got to the danger, blood and gore, that is... *grins*) Thank you again for your support and encouragement, and for your wonderful contributions to this one!

That's it?! (jk) That was great. I like how Legolas comes to realize the strength of the Ring-bearer, and Gimli's newfound appreciation of the elf. I kind of wish this could go on...

Author Reply: To say you wish a story could go on, BB, is the greatest compliment - thank you. I appreciate your kind words and encouragement. Be assured there will be many, many more, as RL permits (unfortunately). The others are all elbowing each other and waving at me and generally behaving without good manners in the effort to get written first...

Bravo! Bravissimo! A wonderful story and a wonderful ending. I love the Gimli and Legolas interaction at the end. The wonderfully creative touch of the forest helping Legolas recover quicker and the trees reaching out to touch him. The banter between Legolas and Aragorn was spot on as well. Wonderful!!!!!

Author Reply: Pearl, thank you so much for your encouragement and for nominating this story! It just amazes me how you can write and review and comment and always be so supportive of other writers. (I accuse Shirebound on a regular basis of hiring help to write/read/review/edit/beta/comment - I think I am going to eye you with equal suspicion.) Thank you so much for being so encouraging all through this story.
