I'm new to hosting guests so bear with me. I'll have so much fun hosting incredible writers. You can see the guest list here.
Without further ado, please welcome my first guest Mark Koopmans! *claps*
This writing community, here in our small piece of the Blogisfear, is so awesome that I wanted to take a moment to comment on all of you.
Actually, if I were to comment on all of you, it would take more than 500 words, and I’d hate to cause severe cases of Eyeglazingoveritis.
Instead, I’d like to show (not tell) how awesome y’all are using a sample selection of the 2,065 comments drawn from my 119 posts.
Here we go
“I wish I could hug everyone who has helped our country or fought for it, because of them I'm free today. Thanks for your post, and your wife really sounds like a great person for giving of her time.” -Melanie Fowler on Veterans Day: The Late Warrior & an Early Story (11.10.11)
“Meh, it would take too long to talk about my self-doubt and I'm in too good a mood, so I'll just say, I love your writing - as evidenced by the fact that even when I don't get time to read blogs, I save yours and read them days later. Keep on doing more of this stuff you do next year :-)” -Sarah Pearson on Self-Doubt.I *Think* I'm Good - How 'bout You? (12.23.11)
“*grinning from ear to ear* How fun to get a little back story, Mark! And the pics are so great! "Dodgy-looking" and the "Electric Slide" made me laugh. so. hard. It *is* a relief to know that you don't need the perfect resume in order to be successful... it really does just take time and work and belief. Love it. Thanks for sharing. :D” -Morgan Shamy on ORIGINS Hop - How I Became a Journalist (02.13.12)
“I don't care where you are at in your manuscript, ‘You’re a great Papa.’ is worth far more.” -Alex J. Cavanaugh on IWSG: Worried About WIP :) (03.07.12)
“This is so touching and I feel certain that your Oma helped you find this in time for the blogging challenge. So you know she is looking down and proud of what you have become and that you are passing you passion for books on to your own children. D was very funny.” -Melissa Sugar on In honor of Oma, and her 1974 A-Z Challenge :) (04.05.12)
“Another awesome surprise! You're full of them, Mark. But that's what makes you so full of awesome sauce! :)” -David P. King on EuroDisney Opening Crew 20 Years Ago Today :) (04.17.12)
“What a great interview! I love that you write to prove to your kids that though it’s hard, you can do it. You can do anything. And you will my dear! That story is amazing!!! :) Thanks for the interview Mark!” -Kelley Lynn on Guest Interview with Leigh Covington :) (05.09.12)
“Keep on doing whatever you're doing, and the only superhero suit you need is for being a superdad! You're able to accomplish a lot more than I do, and my boys' are grown.” -Julie at Empty Nest Insider on IWSG: Am I A Bad Blogger? ... I AM??? (06.08.12)
