Thinking Blogger Award

I’ve been tagged for a “Thinking Blogger Award” by Camel’s Nose for a post I wrote in January on war and sacrifice as part of my Sunday Sermon series.

How cool is that?!

Quoting Nijma:

The Thinking Blogger Award, then, is a grassroots attempt to select blogs based on interest to bloggers themselves, and not just the number of links or clicks measured by an impersonal commercial enterprise.

I can’t tell you what a warm fuzzy feeling I got after finding out I’d been selected by someone as a blog of interest. It’s just big and warm and fuzzy … and I can’t stop smiling. Big thank-yous to Nijma!!

From The Thinking Blog, the rules are:

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 hereby tag:

Latina Lista Great insight into issues affecting Hispanics in America.

Egregious Discusses a variety of issues, not the least of which is working with Russian hospitals.

VichyDems For the post on the US and its debts that scared me and got me thinking.

Pacific Views Lots of great feminist and environmental posts. I discovered a new interest in science as a result of some of their posts. Wouldn’t my high school teachers be amazed?

Days of My Life Life through the eyes of a 15yo Iraqi girl nicknamed Sunshine.

  6. PA-Lady:

    Hey, thank you! I didn’t see this post at the time, but just came across it, and am honored. (And, yeah, it scares me, too. All the talk about how this is gonna be a short recession assumes that other countries are going to want to/be able to keep funding our debt; if they don’t/can’t, then …

    There’s something else I’d like to talk with you about — would you please email me, vichy aaaatttt

    Thanks again —
