Look Who's Talking - David McMahon!

Barely into blogging, I discovered David McMahon's Authorblog and hung on his every word. His blog was all about "encouraging others in excellence" and he did-- every single day!

David is the source of Blogland's wildly popular, Post of the Week, an honor he bestowed on my twice and The Sunday Roast, which he also asked me to participate in. His recognition was HUGE for this newbie blogger and greatly appreciated.

David stepped away from blogging in September, 2009 (gasp!) to work on his novels. But, Eddie Bluelights-- the current father of The Sunday Roast has lured David back for a great interview in blogging.


Please stop by and show David some blog love-- Eddie too!

Truth be told, I kind of stalked David in the early days but he was gracious and offered feedback and encouragement, rather than calling the cops.


Hope you're having a great weekend!
