. . . or rather I’m not the award; hopefully I’m a thinking blogger.
I appreciate the compliment, and if Laura hadn’t tagged me first she would be on my own list. Interesting, annoying, challenging, uplifting, but always getting me thinking.
So where do I go in the blogosphere when I want my thinking challenged. There are a number of group blogs, but I’m going to leave them off the list (Better Bibles, The Panda’s Thumb) and go for individual blogs where I go for gems of good and or creative thinking.
Here’s my list:
Dispatches from the Culture Wars. Ed was the first blogger I read, and he and I first met in the good old days when most online dialog was done on various fora.
Pseudo-Polymath, who regularly challenges me.
Bruce Alderman or It Seems to Me . . ., who manages to challenge with gentle good humor.
Monastic Mumblings, whose take on spirituality is extremely refreshing.
Speaker of Truth, where Peter Kirk has challenged me a fair number of times more than I have responded. Don’t worry, Peter. I’ve got those old posts to which I should have responded, and hopefully I’ll get to them before I reach the kingdom of heaven! (Good link here.)
There are numerous blogs I regularly read and even respond to that are not on this list. I’m not sure I could explain just why one made it but not another, so we’ll just call it random.
Here are the rules:
Congratulations, you won a thinking blogger award! (See the image above).
Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.
The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).
