Thanking Jon Winokur for His Tweet

I don't know if you are aware of Jon Winokur. If you aren't, then you should be. That's all I would like to say. You can read one of his articles on the Huffington Post at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jon-winokur/advice-to-writers-books_b_700945.html#s133073 and you can follow him on Twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/advicetowriters  -- The Huff Post also tells you: The author of two dozen books, including "The Portable Curmudgeon" and "The Big Book Of Irony," Jon Winkour also runs a website: Advice To Writers

You can also read his website at http://www.advicetowriters.com/

Now, why am I thanking Jon Winkour so much? Jon and I are connected on Twitter and he was kind enough to tweet about my blog, this blog. Here is the picture of his tweet:

As you can see for yourself, he put me in excellent company. I was with Allen Ginsberg. Wow. But that's not all. I was checking the traffic to my blog. The fact that Jon wrote a tweet about me led to 150 people taking a look at my blog.

I thought that was phenomenal. Thanks a lot, Jon.
