A Blog Award! Who’d a Thunk?

A Blog Award! Who’d a Thunk? April 14, 2007

This blog is a recipient of the Thinking Blog Award.
My e-pal Dixie is the culprit just too kind.

Here are the instructions:

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.

All right … even though I promised I would never do another MEME after the one I did do, I’ll do it. [Incidentally, speaking of which, there’s a query in the comments of that old post about whether Duke’s Mayonnaise is available in Texas. Welp, sha’azam! (that’s the way they spell it in the Old Country) Even though I no longer eat it — we recently found Duke’s in a Middle Eastern specialty store!]

I don’t get out much; I stick pretty close to the blogroll in my side margin. All of those blogs are thought provoking regular stops. Fr Stephen Freeman offers daily more than daily deep and serious thoughts. (He ain’t got time for no MEME! But, do make time to visit Glory to God for All Things.) Also, my e-pal Dawn is bogged down fabu bizzy with her new book tour. But The Dawn Patrol (and its multitudinous comments) is a thought producer.

But there are others that nudge the ol’ noggin’ …

First off, John travels. In Notes From a Common Place Book, he views the world, the church, politics, through the lens of his journeys among others (voices that often need a hearing in our troubled times).

E-buddy Jan Bear … she’s working on getting a novel (or 2?) published. The girl can write — I just wish she did it more for free on her blog.

Then there’s James, I mean Reader Seraphim, I mean Deacon James … Doh! This guy. His Ancient Church blog lifts my spirits in a God-pleasing way.

This next recipient — not holding my breath that they will reciprocate the MEME (What an idea!) — is the most thought provoking “blog” around:
Get Religion. Do it. Daily. Dey works hard for no money.

Finally — I know, I know … I’m stretching the nature of the MEME here — this guy is the funniest thing since Dave Barry! I cannot put him in my side margin because Baptists also read this blog some of his funnies ain’t fittin’. But, just between you and me, here’s a recent post from Wilder by Far. (You can navigate to the main page for more, but be warned … do not read this blog while eating, drinking or driving. On the other hand, it has been known to help cure melancholy and bronchitis.) Okay, so I lied. John’s never made me think at all. Kudos to him for that.

Oh, about that promise never to do another MEME, I also promise to quit using the strike feature.
