Oh, How I Miss You... and Other News!


First off, thank you, Alex, Andrew, and Matthew for hosting this fabulous fest.

A year ago I first connected with Sarah Belliston. She invited me to be part of her Twelve Days of Christmas bloghop. It was my first hop/giveaway I co-hosted and the opportunity connected me with some of my favorite bloggers today. (Thank you, Sarah!)

She's been off the blog circuit for a while and I miss her! I hope she comes back to the blogging world again. She always had entertaining posts and was always so welcoming. I hope she's doing well.

Next, like all of you, it's near impossible to choose one blogger we would miss if they suddenly vanished. And the blogs on my sidebar are ones that I have to visit frequently. But if I had to choose one blogger who I would really miss, it would be Mark Koopmans.

Mark's posts have two sides. One, they're either mind-blowing HILARIOUS they have you cracking up because there's too many details that are so clever--or two, they're so heartfelt and REAL that you walk away a better person. Whenever I see Mark has a new post up, I can't wait to see what he has to say. So don't vanish, Mark!

Which leads us to...


A quick reminder to stop by on Monday to either mine, Mark, Stephen, DPK, or Alex's (Heh, he's a ninja: he knows everything) blogs, because the secret to the MYSTERY blogfest will be revealed. Trust me, it's awesome.




And last, Emily R. King  and Tammy Theriault are holding the "And You Are...?" hop on Dec 3rd:

Ms. Claus is giving away presents to three lucky people, but they must answer interview questions with David Spade first. Click here to sign up for the "And You Are..?" Blog Hop. Hurry, before all the good seats are taken!

These girls are awesome. And it's great so much is going on we can take part of! Makes me wonder the last time I posted something that didn't involve a fest or hop... ;-)

Red. Head. Out. :D

  8. He keeps me in stitches. If this blog hop had been Oh, How I Miss Your Humor, Mark would have won my vote, hands down. Let's ask Alex for one of those!

  10. Mark is hilarious and very clever. Great choice Morgan!

  11. I still think it's amazing that I can be sitting here in North Dakota and get my funny bone tickled from Hawaii. I've never been there. Yet.
    It's been fun already today!

  12. Oh Sarah! I miss her too. I still keep in touch with Rebecca (her SIL) but I haven't seen her for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Mark is a character! oooh, Monday....how fun!

  14. Sarah's blog looks great! It's always a shame when good bloggers fade away.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Okay, I must participate in a few blog hops in December. I haven't in such a long time. I miss Mark too. ;0)

  22. Choosing was impossible. Mark sounds funny, I want to stop by his blog.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree about Mark. He's another one on the "cannot vanish" list.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my, yes, the world would be so boring with the delightful Mark.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd be lost without Mark> For realz! Hopefully he can give us a grand tour if and when we get ourselves to Hawaii. I, too, miss Sarah. Hopefully she's still around. Epic post, per usual! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Straight over from Alex's - nice to meet you! What a nice blog you have.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great post! It's hard to pick amongst so many great bloggers. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've come across a lot of posts about the person who gave the blogger their first leg up--Sarah sounds like a cool blogger!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Mark is a great choice! You're right about how he can make you cry one minute, and laugh the next. This sounds very much like growing up with my big brother only there is no pain involved! Looking forward to Monday Morgan! Julie

  30. Mark is a good choice. Life would be so boring without the over sized
    leprechaun!

    ReplyDelete
  31. OK, so I am sooooo not the type of person who takes compliments well... but I am

    *for once*

    serious when I say I am *humbled*

    HUMBLED

    by the oh so many nice things said my way...

    Really really nice to hear/read and I'm floored.

    Thanks. ((Morg.))

    PS... Can we do it again tomorrow???

  32. Who wouldn't miss Mark he's an awesome blogger :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Not only am I lacking in blogging, but I'm late in the game on commenting too. :) I am sort of posting on inkandangst.com but I am just not the superhero Morg is and couldn't blog, write, and be a mom at the same time. Some day she will have to share her secret powers with me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think clever, funny bloggers are a huge asset. Mark is definitely one of those. Hi, Morgan!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's kinda funny that I keep hearing that blogfests are losing popularity and yet there have been bunches of them mentioned recently. Maybe it's a blogfest renaissance! lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, wow! I forgot November 19 is THIS Monday. I've been waiting patiently *snort* for the big news. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. i miss sarah too!
    and mark is one hilarious hawaiian!
    great post of mis-chiefs. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I agree with you...I would miss Mark too! And though I didn't have time to do this blog hop, I must say, I would have missed you, my dear. I love coming over to see what you have to say. So glad we met through the blogosphere!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great tribute, Morgan! I've only visited Mark's blog a few times. It sounds like I should spend more time there. Can't wait for tomorrow's big reveal! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Morgan, thanks for the intro!

    Congratulations! You've won the Eliza Daly giveaway on Romance Book Paradise!

  41. There have been a lot of hops/fests lately, haven't there? But it's been fun! Will have to check out the David Spade one, and I love the idea for the Cavanaugh hop.
