An Award-Winning Blog

I am pleased and honored to learn that Jen Brubacher at Scribo ergo sum nominated me for the Prolific Blogger Award, and said some very nice things about me besides. Thanks, Jen!

As it happens, this is my 250th post to this blog. What could be more appropriate than to celebrate such an occasion with an award for being prolific?

The Award rules require that I pass the Award on to my fellow bloggers. Of the many wonderful bloggers I read, follow and generally wish I more closely resembled, I must select only seven. I would like to present the Prolific Blogger Award to:

Weronika Janczuk. Weronika is a young writer whose drive and dedication is an inspiration to this older writer.

JR Peck, Geeks in Action. JR runs several blogs where he reviews books, writes code, fights the good fight and keeps the faith.

Dan Powell. Dan's stories are consistently top notch, and always on the must read list.

Carrie Clevenger, Mindspeak. Carrie combines great writing with an irreverent sense of humor and a split personality.

Alan Baxter, The Word. Alan's blog is not only interesting and insightful, it is also of lasting cultural significance. (But you don't have to take my word on that... just ask him about it.)

Emma Newman, Post-Apocalyptic Publishing. Emma is a dedicated and creative writer, and is a delightful person to boot.

Maria Protopapadaki-Smith, Mazzz in Leeds. Maria's fiction is finely crafted; it goes down like a glass of high-octane rum punch.

You can read and follow any of these guys, and you'll be better off for having done so.


  1. Congrats, Tony! And to your choices as well!

  2. Congratulations! You are definitely deserving! And, that is a great list of writers. I am glad to discover a few new ones in your list I didn't know about.

  3. Wow Tony - I am very flattered to be included among such illustrious bloggers/writers

    And of course I'm blushing with pride at the high octane rum comment :-)
    Mmm, rum.

  4. Thanks to everyone, and congratulations to K.M. & Maria! Well done!

  5. Wow, I'm honoured. Thanks Tony!

    And congrats to you too. Now I have to think of others to pass the award to...

  6. Well - an unexpected honor. You are kind to send some readers my way. I'll award you back with a book that should be on it's way to your home soon - once I finish writing the review anyway. It's "Freedom" the sequel to "Daemon" and I think you'll like it. Oh - and a couple more hyphens for good - measure.

  7. It's my pleasure, Alan & JR. You do good work!

    I'm looking forward to the book, JR. I really enjoyed Daemon. This was some of that really good sci-fi (almost horror), where the tech involved was fiction, but believable enough where you found yourself saying, "OK, I can see how that could, maybe possible happen in a few years".

  8. I completely planned it to go with your 250th post! Obviously! (No, I didn't. But it's fun. :) )

  9. After reading you site, Your site is very useful for me .I bookmarked your site!

  10. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
    And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)
