so brooke picked my blog for the thinking blogger award. which is a lovely compliment, since i always love reading what she has to say. her blog is full of fun tidbits and recommendations and creativity and beauty. i’ve lifted some of my favorite pictures from her. and found wonderful children’s books to recommend for all my nieces and nephews.

so, in no particular order, and because they make me think in a variety of different ways, i’m naming the following as my own thought-provoking blogs:

1. my sisters at bougainvillea and we can do it! because there’s something really wonderful about knowing siblings as adults and their blogs help me to know not only what’s happening in their lives, but also what they’re thinking about and how they’re dealing with problems that i also sometimes face.

2. seymour, to whom i owe 95% (probably more) of my discoveries in new music and a signifcant chunk of my other discoveries in the last few years. in addition to keeping me tapped into interesting trends and info, he makes me laugh. and i found my most recent life motto on his blog.

3. time is an illusion. lunchtime doubly so. full of funny little tidbits and an interesting perspective. plus she ran ‘kiss of the day’ for a while last fall (bring it back!), which was highly amusing. and she used the term ‘bathing jersey.’ that in and of itself is worth notice.

4. then there’s ftrain. written by paul ford, who i don’t know from adam. but he’s a fabulous writer. and he’s an NPR commentator, so i’m officially jealous. his posts often speak to me. and occasionally for me. he hasn’t been posting much lately, but i still go peruse archives on occasion.

5. i read a few mormon women’s blogs. i thoroughly enjoy both exponent II (which i occasionally write on) and feminist mormon housewives. but zelophehad’s daughters most consistently gets me thinking about being mormon, intellectual, and feminist.

so there they are. five of the more than five blogs i consistently read and thoroughly enjoy. i don’t like narrowing it down to five (actually six), because i wouldn’t read any of the blogs i read regularly if they didn’t get me thinking. but those are my arbitrary choices tonight.

if you’re the sort to pass a meme along, here’s what you’re supposed to do:

1. If I have nominated you, you have been tagged.
2. If you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think.
3. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
4. (Optional) Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote.

do with it what you will.

    wow! i tagged jana, who tagged brooke, who tagged you – and you were one of those i thought of when i was originally making my list. i didn’t think i know you well enough to know whether you’d enjoy this sort of thing or not – but i’m glad you’ve played along! i’ll definitely check out your nominees!

    thanks…but i’m of the feeling that memes are the chain letters of blogilandia. and i don’t do chain letters. the madness (or in this case the kindness) must stop somewhere.

    i like finding new blogs that the people whose blogs i enjoy like to read. so this particular meme didn’t bug me much. and i don’t mind the kind that ask questions that lead me to post about things i may not have considered otherwise (like the fun christmas one jana introduced me to last december).but i totally understand the stopping-the-chain-letter-madness response (and fully expected it of you, seymour). i’ve done a fair bit of it myself.
