"I Love This Blog" Award

By Mark Young
Aw, shucks … someone out there likes this blog.

My friend, Jordyn Redwood—creator and editor of the  Redwood Medical Edge blog— surprised me the other day by announcing on her blog that Hook’em and Book’em is one of her favorites. By the way, Jordyn’s blog is the place to visit for any writer needing emergency medical treatment information. She is a registered nurse with over eighteen years experience working emergency room and intensive-care wards. If  you write or read about crime, mystery and murder, sooner or later you’ll need advice from someone like Jordyn. Why not start learning right now.

Here's how the award works: 

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.

2. Share seven things about yourself.

3. Award up to 15 blogs that are deserving. (I’m awarding nine.)

4. Contact those bloggers and let them know about the award.

Here's seven things about myself:

1. I’d rather kick in the door of a house—teaming with armed and dangerous gangsters—than to be dragged out on the dance floor.

2. I’d rather walk across broken glass in bare feet than be called upon to give a speech.

3. I’d rather jump naked into an ice-cold lake each morning than have to wear a suit everyday … wait a minute, let me think about that one for awhile.

4. I’d rather have root canal surgery than explain to my daughter about the birds and bees … thank God for moms.

5. I’d rather learn how to publish my own novel than to keep getting rejections letters year after year.

6.  I’d rather be tarred and feathered than ever lose my wife’s love and respect.

7. And, ... I’d rather never to have been born than to betray my God and Country.

Here's who I'm giving the "I Love This Blog!" award to:


  1. Mark, thanks for saying such nice things about me and my blog. I'm so thankful for your support.

    I loved your seven things list! I look forward to taking a peek at some of your favorite blogs.
