The Thinker

Thank you to Susan Gets Native for giving me the “Thinking Blogger award”

thinkingblogger

This award was given because my blog posts make her think, which is a really nice thing for her to say, especially with what has been going on lately.

The Thinker

Side note: If memory serves me correctly, there is one of these “The Thinker” statues located on the SU campus. I’ll have to check it out sometime and take a photo.

Sooo, I’ll play along, but first I want to tell you that I don’t read any blogs that don’t make me think because my time is really limited. So I really would like to give the thinking blogger award to all of my blogging friends! And in my selection (selecting is really tough to do) I’m not including the ones that have already won the award (to my knowledge, that is). Please note, these are not in any particular order.

a. Tom at Mon@rch’s Nature Blog: I love Tom’s enthusiasm and his willingness to teach and share through his blogs and Flickr and to answer all of the questions I ask him. He’s so smart yet down to earth and doesn’t ever make me feel stupid when I ask about birds or anything! And he loves history, too.

b. Lynne at Hasty Brook: I fell in love with Lynne’s blog from day one because of her love of nature and her love of Hasty Brook. I’ve learned quite a bit from her blog, and I always look forward to learning more from Lynne’s posts.

c. Sandy at Gardenpath: Sandy, whether she knows it or not, has inspired me to write haiku by reading her blog. She also inspires me because she loves some of the same things I do, including nature, quilting, cooking, baking and gardening.

d. Jayne at Journey Through Grace: Jayne inspires me to be more graceful through her posts, and to continue decorating my home, and to try to achieve better photos, as all of my blogging friends do.

e. Jennifer at A Passion for Nature: Jennifer is a relatively new blogger and I have yet to comment on her blog because of my life’s events, but I have lurked, she’s got quite a bit to say, and I love her Flickr photostream.

Tom, Lynne, Sandy, Jayne and Jennifer: If you would like to participate in this meme, please choose five of the blogs that make you think, and please put the following participation rules in your post:

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).
