I started this bog back in April of 2007. For at least six months before that I read several writing related blogs. The most entertaining and enlightening of which was venerable, Miss Snark. If you are a writer and have never read Miss Snark you are doing yourself a vast disservice. The archives are still there so venture on over and educate yourself.
It was in the comments of Miss Snark that I first discovered MaNiC MoMMy's fantabulous wit. So of course I started reading her blog. Those were the first two I made a point to check everyday. Google Reader was not yet an option a I dutifully clicked everyday to see of they had a new post.
So when in February of '07 I attended a week long writer's workshop in Arizona. There I had several agents as well as an editor tell me it was important to establish an online presence before I sold a novel. Thus One Word, One Rung, One Day was born. I never would have became a blogger without attending that workshop. Or reading Miss Snark and MaNiC MoMMy.
So it is with great pride that I announce that one of my blogging heroes. none other than the MaNiC MoMMy herself, Stephanie Elliott who also writes for Betty Confidential has designate your truly as one of the best of the best Dad Bloggers. You can read what she has to say about me as well as the four other great dad bloggers she highlighted in honor of Father's Day at this link.
I'm stoked to be part of such great company. And to be honored by one of my favorite all time bloggers ... I couldn't ask for more.
