An Amazing Blogger

Dear Readers,
Recently J.D., the author of the creative, as well as exceptional blog "The Uneasy Supplicant" gave me the "You're An Amazing Blogger" award. It is my turn now, and my privilege to hand this award over to a truly amazing blogger, Kristyn, who authors three blogs (Kristyn Writes, Ya Don't Say, Ya Don't Say at Vox) who is a wonderful and prolific writer. I have a difficult time as it is maintaining one blog, I couldn't imagine authoring three of them. She seems to do this with ease.

Kristyn was one of the first people to stop by Mr. Grudge on a regular basis and offer very insightful and valuable comments on my posts. Kristyn doesn't just drop in and write "great post," or "nice blog;" she adds to the conversation, and always has an interesting fact to go along with it. Her blogs reflect that sort of writing. She is grateful to her readers and writes from the heart. So, without anymore rambling, I humbly present Kristyn with the "You're An Amazing Blogger" award! Step up Kristyn, and take a bow.

Congrats on your, "You're An Amazing Blogger Award!: The Uneasy Supplicant is, indeed, a great blog, as is yours, by the way.

As far as Kristyn is concerned, she is the type of reader that all of us bloggers dream about, ones that give extra sparkle to your posts.

When she is finished reading your blog, send her on over here.... she's both my kind of reader and blogger.

Thank you so much, Mike. You have no idea what this means to me, coming from a great writer and blogger like you. You're writing is wonderful, it draws me in, and I'll keep coming back day after day!! Thanks again, Mike! You truly are an awesome blogger.

Good recommendation, Mike.
Krystin's work is both heady and heavy, but with a nice relaxed, even flow to it.

Your stuff is more like a hit man looking to whack a buck-toothed beaver. But, there's plenty of room for this edgy style too. I love it.

Great post!

Honestly though, checked out Kristyn's blog: it looks visually great and I love the little word count bar she has in her side bar.

Hi Lover of Children's Literature,
I appreciate your kind words about my blog. The Uneasy Supplicant is a well written blog and it is nice to meet someone else who enjoys his work. Kristyn is a fabulous writer as well, and she is prolific and tireless in her efforts to improve her writing. I will tell others about your informative blog as well. Thanks for stopping by, and I will visit your blog often. -Mike.

Hi Kristyn! You deserve this award and so much more! I am always happy when I read your comments on my blog. You are so smart, and you know the craft and technique of writing so well. Because of you, I know about the writing bubble when I'd spend months bogged down in the mire of a plot going nowhere. You knew about Hearst Castle and told me all about it, and you taught me the word "Spoonerism" when I was actually using it in a story and didn't know the term. You are a writer, and you have me as a fan. I hope to continue our blogging friendship for a long time. Congratulations on being such a talented blogger...and writer. -Mike.

P.S. Thanks for your kind words about me.

Hi Jack, What happened between me and that buck-toothed beaver was personal; he had it coming. I like Kristyn's writing very much. I read one of her short stories she wrote from a writing prompt and was impressed. She will appreciate your comments. I happen to be a big fan of your blog as well, Jack. Thanks for visiting and for leaving a nice comment. have a great day. -Mike.

Hi Mike,
Kristyn takes the design and style of her blogs seriously as I never know what new template to expect the next time I stop by. From reading her posts, she is also very Tech-savvy. I have you blogs book marked and will be visiting them this week. I saw that you have an article up with a video accompanying the piece. I never think to do anything like that. You're a creative guy, I like that. You'll read my comments on your space. Thanks for stopping by Mike! -Mike
