I got a “Thinking Blogger Award!”
It all originated with ilker yoldas at The Thinking Blog, who picked 5 blogs that made him think rather than just answer a simple meme about what his favorite color is. Anyway, I’m to pick 5 blogs that make me think.
So here goes:1]Rogue Gunner. “Rogue Gunner” is a Falklands War Veteran. He has PTSD and he writes beautiful and moving poetry and commentaries. He writes about the war now and he writes about his own war experiences.
2] Rose Covered Glasses. A Vietnam Vet and his colleagues write a very unique blog. I don’t always agree, but they frequently have a good laugh and will offer you much to think about! They are big on satire which I am often slow to catch, lol!
3] Crotchety Old Bastard by cobdanny. He has a real down to earth approach to his words. I like reading his blog. He will definitely stir your mental juices!
4] Sparks from the Anvil by WordSmith from Nantucket. Another great writer. He moves my emotions when I read his blog. I often find he helps me out of my writer rut!
5] Tanker Brothers has Brat, Tracey, A_C, all really good bloggers. They each have their own style. What can I say about these guys. They support our troops, They write some really thought provoking posts. They also touch on some spiritual needs.
You guys have all been tagged as blogs that make me think. Yeah, believe it or not I do have a thinking cap I put on from time to time. 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.
I don’t usually go in for mimes. But, I think this one has merit. I like the idea of being able to make people think. I also enjoy reading blogs that make me think. This may be the only award I ever get; but, it is an award I feel proud to get! Hope you feel the same and decide to each pick your five choices.
