Q is for Quizzle

Man.

If you're here from Alex's blog, I don't know what to say.

That dude is so much cooler than me.

So much more giving.

He works way harder than me on his blog, and his blogging (yes, that's two different things).

He already has a book out.

He gives WAY more help and support to both friends and strangers than he ever receives.

I don't know what to say for myself.

I'm not saying I'm not cool. I am. But to stand next to Alex is a little different.

If you're new here, please have a look at my pages, and the archives, when you have time, but I don't have a real post for today.

Tomorrow I'll be helping my friend Michael G-G with his query. Friday too. You could just become a follower and then come back for that.

Actually, that would rule. Do that, please.

Don't compare yourself to Alex and think you come up short. You're cool too and all of our journeys are different.

Em-Musing said...

You blog is fantastic and cool in your own individual way. I mean, look how many followers you have. They can't all be wrong.

Laura Pauling said...

That's what I love about the blogging world! We're all different! :)

Vicki Rocho said...

Ya lured me in with 'quizzle' (a truly great word) and then post a commercial for Alex. Yeah, he rocks -- but you know you can't compare yourself to anyone else, right? Rest assured that somewhere someone is wishing they were cool like you.

Matthew MacNish said...

You guys are all so nice! I didn't mean to sound like I was fishing for compliments, I'm just flattered that Captain Ninja Alex would highlight me out of all the Q blogs out there.

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww!!! You are so yoda to his cap'n ninja!
:-)

Take care

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I'd say you're super cool, Matt. You help people with their queries. And that's not an easy task to do. It takes a coolness factor to give such honest and great advice. :D

Ishta Mercurio said...

Hey, your blog rocks. Don't knock it! You've got a nice mix of serious and light, and it's awesome that you help people with their queries. Write On!

KarenG said...

I should have written about you for the Q word because your blog is so full of Q love.

Ella said...

Great Q word; No comparing! We each have our own unique voice~ Great pic of you n' your daughter!

Sommer Leigh said...

I think he picked exactly the right Q blog for the job of cool.

Emily White said...

Best quote ever:

"I'm not saying I'm not cool. I am."

I must use that now, and often. :)

LTM said...

stop being so modest, you are very cool and super helpful. Look at all the query success stories you've got... Well, I know of some anyway.

Not sure if I'll be around tomorrow, but I'll try~ :o)

Bish Denham said...

It's wonderful that he highlighted you!

Karen Walker said...

I learned somewhere that comparison is an act of vengeance against oneself.I am envious of others and struggle with this. Please don't compare yourself to Alex or anyone else. We all have our journeys and ways of doing things. Looks to me like you're doing just great here.

Diversity is what I love about visiting blogs - and people!

Michael G-G said...

How many more cool people are out there in blogospace?

Matt, you're all about cool. And "Q." In fact, I'd say you're "qu-ool."

Looking forward to tomorrow.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Alex is awesome! For the record, I think you're both in the same class of Cool.

Tara said...

You and Alex both bring sooo much to the blogging table. ~~awesome~~

L.G.Smith said...

Of course the QQQ is cool. The ultimate Q blog.

Lori M. Lee said...

I will obviously have to check this Alex guy out.

... but not like that. Erm.

But you definitely don't give yourself enough credit. Really enjoy your blog, your thoughts, and your query critiques. Which, by the way, thank you for stopping by yesterday and offering some feedback on my query. HUGELY appreciated <3

Shain Brown said...

You are pretty cool, even bordering way cool...

I am always learning stuff from your blog: other writers, queries, books, a couple movies sprinkled in, and my recent discovery of a new hot sauce.

I don't know, you set the bar pretty high.

Katie Mills said...

who's alex? LOL Just kidding but you are in your own center of cool.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Yeah Alex is pretty cool. Sometimes i wonder what he looks like. I think he might be a robut. Nahh, i'm just kidding. I meant an android.

Patti said...

From what I've read, sounds like you're your own kind of cool.

Huntress said...

Kudos to Alex and the A to Z but it is YOUR blog that created the stir.

Great blog filled with rich info.

"I'll be back." - Aaaaahnold.

Donea Lee said...

I was quite honored to be featured on Alex's blog today AND paired with an awesome blogger like you!!

Thanks for the follow, btw ~ :) I just kept thinking, "When I'm cool enough...he'll come." Lol...

Laura M. Campbell said...

I wish I could be here more often, but this month has turned my blog reading upside down. Once the month is over, I will be sure to head back and hang again!

Michelle Merrill said...

Uh, I think you are both cool. Really. And thanks for the link to Michael. Not a real post? Palease. It rocks. The fact that you post so much for other people just proves that you must be awesome. Just sayin'. :)

Elana Johnson said...

You are totally cool! Give yourself a break.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Dude - and you do rock! You give so much help with queries, something I could never do. You're a cool Ninja!!

Christina Lee said...

Awww... well this post just made you even cooler!

Lindsay said...

Aww. Well I think you both are awesome!

Nicole Zoltack said...

You both have awesome blogs!

Jessica Bell said...

You do know that you are both too kool for skool ;o)

You do know that you are both too kool for skool ;o)

Cynthia Lee said...

I think you're pretty cool, dude. :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I think you are both pretty neat people!

Chris Phillips said...

You are mixing up the words cool and kind, because I'm cooler than both of you, but you two are the kindest bloggers out there.

Bethany Elizabeth said...

I haven't been to Alex's blog, but don't discount yourself here. Your blog is SO super helpful and fun to read. :)

Matthew MacNish said...

You've got a valid point there, Chris. You are damn cool.

Sean said...

Anyone with a lightsaber is cooler than the other side of the mattress. No wait, pillow. Damn, screwed that all up.

Lydia K said...

You are icy cool and your swear word dictionary is way cooler than mine.

Alex is awesome, but you are not Alex. It doesn't mean you are not awesome though.
;)

Sarah said...

I think the featuring was well-deserved--though very cool of Alex to do! Looking forward to reading Michael G-G's query!

Rose Cooper said...

Um, you rock. You don't even need to write an actual post for everyone to tell you how awesomely awesome your blog is. So Take That!

Rose Cooper said...

PS-I was a maybe kinda sorta a little bit sad to not see my name on your list under "author blogs" Could I perhaps bribe you with chocolate? or maybe a volcanic rock?

Helen Ginger said...

Alex is a great guy, I agree. And he seems to think you are as well!

ali said...

See? THIS is why we love you. Pure Awesome. ((hugs))

Lisa of In Pencil said...

You are far far too modest. You have helped so many people, and I think your coolness goes without saying.

And for the record, I found Alex's blog today. Through you. Not vice versa.
