Blog Party Declared

I’ve been keeping this blog since July 30th of last year.  In that amount of time, I’ve met so many of you, read so much of your writing, seen your photography, interacted with you, received your comments, and generally been given so much support that it was time to do this to say THANK YOU!!  I declare a…


Here’s how it works:

Create a post on your blog about one of your current followers.  Choose anyone you wish.

  • Title your post “Blog Party Declared” and link back to this post somewhere in your post.  This will create a pingback to this post which will appear in the comments below.  This way everyone can be directed to your post to read about your featured follower as well as to give us all the opportunity to follow your blog and the blog of your featured follower.
  • Keep your post from becoming too long but be sure to link to your follower’s blog and say why you’ve chosen them.
  • Check back on this post on occasion to see the links that appear in the comments section so you can go see the blogs of others to read their latest work and to show them a little love by following.

NOTE:  I promise to follow anyone who takes part in this blog party and I’ll also follow the blog featured in your post.

My Featured Blogger for this first Blog Party is:

Mike Steeden!

Mike has been a follower here since virtually the beginning.  It’s possible he was the first to follow, actually.  And that’s not to mention that he’s been exceptionally supportive by hitting that “Like” button virtually every time I’ve posted.

Mike writes some great poetry.  Shoot, even his titles are amazing!  His most recent is THE CONFESSIONAL OF REMINISCENCE.  Here’s an excerpt:

“You have the peerless cocktail mix

Defining the addled moron that was

Me in those sophomoric know-all days”

That could describe so many of us in our younger years of rebellion, teenage lust, wantonness, and craziness.  Mike nails the description in this piece  – something he has a habit of doing in his writing – nailing it!

And I haven’t even mentioned that Mike can rock the color black!

Go check him out and be sure to give him a follow.  He’s a heckuva fine writer!

That’s pretty much it!  Simple.  Stick around and enjoy the Blog Party!

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
