The Ninja Won the Pot-O-Gold Award!

Big time thanks to my friend Casey McCormick over at Literary Rambles for bestowing on this blog the Pot-O-Gold Award! I’m not sure what it is or where I collect my gold, but it’s very exciting to win:)

Christie Wright Wild created the award and here's the idea behind it:

"The Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award is awarded monthly, by me, to one blogger who I feel has a flair for interesting and helpful content, as well as visually appealing and easy-to-navigate design. In other words, it's like discovering a pot of gold! It's a site you will visit frequently and enjoy swimming around in for a while."

Thank you, Casey!

Here are the rules:

If you receive the Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award:

1. Say thank you to the person who gave it to you.

2. Write a post and include the image of the award, a link to the person's blog who gave it to you, and a link to my blog, WRITE WILD. (Copy and paste the rules in your post.)

3. Award four bloggers this award and tell why each is a Pot-O-Gold! (If you receive this award more than once, you only have to forward it the first time.)

4. Share four simple things about yourself: 1-a time you had to exercise FAITH, 2-something you HOPE for, 3-something (or someone) you LOVE, and 4-a time when you felt LUCK.

FAITH: I'm a writer. I have to exercise faith each and every time I sit down to write that someone, somewhere will want to read what I'm writing.

HOPE: I hope last night's final episode of Big Love was just a bad dream I had and that when I watch the real final episode it will have a better ending.

LOVE: I love Mrs. Ninja. Obviously. And Batman. And you, Esteemed Reader.

LUCK: I feel lucky because I have even more exciting interviews with authors and literary agents to share with you in the coming weeks.

Now then, I guess I'm supposed to choose four bloggers to give this award to. Hmmmm. Well, obviously I follow several writer blogs, so I'll just rule out the blogs of any authors or agents who have appeared here. I couldn't possibly choose among so many fine blogs and in a way, isn't having appeared on this blog award enough? No, I suppose not.

Also, my first choice would be Casey McCormick and Natalie Agguire, but I can't very well regift Casey's award back to her.

So I guess I'll choose:

BabylonSista at Confessions of a Cybernegress because I'm married to her:) You may note her most recent post is about a delicious beet recipe. Beets I ate. What's not to like?

Melina at Reading Vacation because she reviews way more books than I do and her love of reading inspires my own.

Michael G-G over at The Year of Writing Dangerously because of his great reviews of craft books and because I won a book there just a week ago and I really like winning things:)

Bruce at Building Batman. I have never commented on this blog nor reached out to Bruce in any way. But I do love reading about his mission to become Batman and I support this noble cause with all my heart.

That's it for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a new Book of the Week and I hope you'll be here too. And now here's a video of a man with puppets that makes me laugh and laugh:


  1. Great award! I hadn't heard of this one. It really explores you the writer from a different angle. Congrats!!

  5. Rob,

    Wow! I've been Spring Breaking so haven't been around the blogs lately. What do I see, the very week of my birthday, but this nice award from you! Thank you so much. Too bad it's not regiftable, or it would be right back at you!

    Hope all is well with your writing.

  6. Wonderful video...You have done great job..


Thanks for stopping by, Esteemed Reader! And thanks for taking the time to comment. You are awesome.
