Blog Spotlight: Mike Allegra
How can you not want to read a blog with this as its banner?
This is Mike Allegra, aka HeyLookAWriterFellow. Think of Steve Martin and Billy Crystal as children’s book writers. A little scary but Mike promises he keeps it clean. In fact he insists on it, even though he has been known to trot out some potty jokes now and then. Besides writing an absolutely this-is-really-funny stuff blog, he is a very talented writer, doodler, and all around good guy. He loves to show off his cute kid, who I need to figure out how to bribe so he’ll pull my entry out of the next doodle hat round.
I don’t even know how I found Mike’s blog. I think we started frequenting the same blogs with our commentary and I popped in. Mike and I now banter until I get him to cry “uncle, already.” Yes, Mike, I am keeping score. But I should stay on his good side because I am really hoping to get a cow on a pogo stick doodle out of him one of these days. And, no–this is not a butter up attempt. There have been at least three blog spotlights prior to Mike (I’m going by who trades the most comments with me or who I’ve known the longest in the blogosphere).
So, if you are looking to connect with a talented published children’s author, or like witty writing, or hope to win a doodle (there is a batch of us petitioning for him to run his doodle drawings at least once a month) you need to pop in and visit Mike, who is more than just another writer fellow.
I just love this—and Mike 🙂 And you are SO right—I want doodle prizes at least once a month! 😀
I tempted him to come out of his mini-hibernation but no Mike sightings yet.
If nothing else, Pam, he’ll know how much he’s missed 🙂 I mean, seriously, who do you know in the blogosphere that gets “nudged” this way? 😉 I don’t blame him though! lol I’m wanting a VERY LONG hiatus from social media! lol
Yes, he’s fabulous! But he hasn’t posted in a month of Sundays! Mike! Yoo-hoooooo!!! Where are you????
I was hoping this post would entice him. Hmmm, I know he likes pancakes or was that waffles?
I’ve got some outstanding maple syrup. Now if he would just poke his little rodent-loving nose out of his hole…
(Rubs sleepy summer hibernating eyes)
Hm…? What’s going on?
Oh. It’s October isn’t it?
Wakey Wakey Sleepy Guy
I’m thinkin’ the Bear Snores On 😉
But I don’t wanna go to school…
Yet your clamoring public craves doodles and Allegra charm.
Let’s not get TOO carried away with the “sucking up,” Pam. I mean—charm?! lol 😉
Yes, it is. Draw us a pumpkin, or something. Throw us a bone! Your admiring readers will be happy with anything!
Aren’t you satisfied with all your ding dang cat drawings?
Ooh, someone came out of hibernation grumpy.
Au contraire. That just whets the appetite for more, moRE, MORE!!!
Mike has vanished. Even his blog has left the planet. Tsk–this hibernation of his has gone to serious status
I recall that last post, the one with the smoking gun. I’m thinking the duck did it with a revolver in the library. And these minimalists responses are being written by the duck to cover up the fact that Mike has been done away with. He deserves to be put in the Goldilockup!!
I’m all for that!
Ah! You have touched one one of the many reasons why I have not been blogging lately. But I shall say no more.
You are such a tease!
