It was only a matter of time...

Even though my old friend, Thomas Hamburger Jnr, recently received the accolade of being nominated as a Thinking Blogger, I noted that he pointedly did not include me in his own list of five subsequent nominees. I thought, at the time, that it was a little unthinking of him.

Thankfully, my thoughtfulness has been noted by another. Thank you, then, 70s Teen for nominating me for the self-same award.

I shall not let it go to my head.

Here are five blogs that make me think, and I hope they'll make you think too:

  1. Homeless Family's Blog - a recently-discovered place worth a regular stop-by, methinks
  2. Moon Danzer Delivers - more proof that the words 'thinking' and 'American' aren't as contradictory as President Bush might suggest
  3. On the strength of this single post alone, People in the Sun gets my vote.
  4. Saskboy is another blogger who makes me think - so much so that I regularly Fuel His Blog even though he's a competitor of mine in the tightly-fought-out News/Politics section of FMB. He keeps a close watch on our transatlantic cousins from his north of the border vantage point - and I for one am glad.
  5. Dear Domestic Minx has already been nominated twice for this award, but I can't resist making sure she has a third for her crowded mantlepiece. Her decadence delights daily.

The rules for winners of the Thinking Blog Award are outlined by originator Ilker Yoldas:

1. If you are nominated, 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' - you can find more details here - with a link to the post that you wrote (there is an alternative gold version if silver doesn't fit your blog).


People in the Sun said...

Thank you, Sir. I'm honored. (honoured). First thing tomorrow morning I will find five fellow thinkers.

Oh thank you my darling Bill xx

I'm so glad I make you think - even if it is about stolen moments in Paris and the state of my rather illustrious minge!!

I will proudly display this on my mantlepiece. You can rest assured it will be dusted and polished.

MoonDanzer said...

I still am in a mild state of shock but I did want to say thank you. I am at an utter loss for some witty quip. I can only offer my most sincere thanks.

Saskboy said...

Thanks for the tag, I'll write about it when I've got a few minutes.

Ah yes, and it takes one of great intellect and IQ to Bush Bash.. And so original these days...


John C said...

Thanks Bill. I hadn't had the chance of thanking you directly. Thanks again.

...and again. And just one again, thanks again.

Again? Ok. Thanks!

Bill Blunt said...

No thanks required, John - your blog is definitely one for those who like a bit of meat in their sandwich. You don't duck the important issues, and that's to be commended!
