A Few Good Men

You might have noticed that I have bad luck with men in the romance arena. I'd like to blame the male species, but I can't. There are too many great guys in the blogoverse alone. And they've been some of my most enthusiastic, funny, and gracious readers. Given the extent to which I mock stupid men, I truly appreciate my male blog friends. So this post is dedicated to you, my manly followers, spotlighting a few good men in particular... 

First, my most adorable male fan, Mini-Alex. Behind every cute guy is a woman, and Elise Fallon created Mini Alex for the Alex blogfest. Mini and his Peeps recently toured Alex's blog with my book, and they made an appearance at my facebook page. The fans are going wild. His agent, Captain Alex, has been one of my dearest blog friends for several years. Thank you, Alex and Mini. [And thanks to my new creative blog friend, Elise.]

Second, there's blogland's rhyming wizard, Mr. Pat Hatt and his cat. Pat and the cat express everything in rhyme. They even respond to every blog comment in rhyme. Pat's a good guy and a successful author too. I'm most excited that his newly published book, Tune at High Noon, features a Rockin Robin!! It's really fun, the illustrations are great, and my praise of Pat's work comes completely unsolicited.
And the men who've made me laugh more than any other bloggers, A Beer for the Shower buds, Bryan and Brandon, always deserve mention. Their talents amaze me. B & B are artists, accomplished authors, and outrageously funny. Despite their beer chugging bravado, they are down-to-earth nice. B & B recently celebrated the distribution of their books in Denver based bookstores. Congratulations, guys.

I have so many more wonderful male blog friends: Jamie, Anthony, Pat T., Kal, Chuck, Matthew, Gorilla, John McE., and the guy reading this saying "Damn that Robyn, she forgot to mention me. Ungrateful little b*tch!" I love you all.

Women, I love you too. I just figure you already know this. If not, please know it now.

Be well, everyone. I appreciate you.

  1. I don't believe I have been to the A Beer for the Shower blog yet. Maybe I should remedy that.
    By the way, I got your book. Good work. I have yet to write my review. I will though.

  2. Mini-Alex and the Peeps were happy to hang with your book!
    Pat rhymes like no other and Bryan and Brandon are hilarious.
    And Chuck is The Dude.
    You are a dear friend Robyn and I'd follow you to the ends of the earth.

  4. Ages ago I'd heard a lot of good things about Bryan and Brandon but for various reasons kept ignoring it but ever since I've followed their blog I haven't regretted it once. Not only is their blog one of the funniest things I read here on a regular basis but the guys behind the blog are top class and always give me insight and advice that I find to be really helpful.

    Pat is awesome as well, if I didn't acknowledge that he would cause quite a smell!

  8. Awww, thanks for the extremely generous words! You are far too kind, not just to put us beside these other great gentlemen, but the fact that you called us 'men' and not 'overgrown manchildren.'

  9. Thanks, all, and you're welcome, gentlemen. That includes you, Mini-Alex.

  11. I seem to have seen most of these men in my travels around the blog world. Your book, yes, a review is pending and promise to do it in April, whether I participate in the A-Z or not. I need to attract bloggy friends back to my site before I post your review or you can bring your herd.
    Have been missing my regular Robin humour fix. Hopefully, by June, I would've make enough progress in my freelance work and bill payments that I'll get enough time to blog like before.

  19. Rek, it's tough to balance it all, isn't it? I understand. It's great to see you. No hurries, no worries regarding a book review or anything like that. All in good time. Be well.

    John, glad you agree.

    Cheryl, I'm glad to have introduced folks to some exceptional bloggers.

    Faraway, yes, great minds indeed. Smiles.

  22. Good on you! Great idea and there are a few good men out there. I found mine in the newspaper, so you never know where romance lurks.

  23. It's weird when people refer to me by my real name. I think I have convinced myself that I am actually Powdered Toast Man. Thanks for the shout out.
