A Thinking Blogger's Award!
I don't know what to say? Uh, well let me begin by thanking God for making me love writing and reading so much. I'd like to thank my family for without them my life woul'd only be 1/83rd as much fun as it is right at this moment. I'd like to thank Dell for making one kick-ass and affordable laptop! And I'd like to thank EVERYONE around the world that takes the time to read my humble little opinions on my blog!
Let me backtrack for a moment. Early this month I was named for a pretty interesting blog award called THE THINKING BLOGGER AWARD. This is a concept originated by blogger ILKER YOLDAS, and I was choosen for this by a fellow blogger named GUNFIGHTER who writes one of my favorite blogs THE VIEW FROM HERE.
The rules for winning a THINKING BLOGGER AWARD are as follows:
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 (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
Honestly, I think this is a pretty cool thing to do. I think the idea of blogging as a hobby, and sharing ideas with people is simply incredible. I think BLOGS make the world a much smaller place and the idea that people from all over the world can and sometimes do access my thoughts and opinions is so amazing and humbling. It is also humbling that a blogger I enjoy and respect so much thinks a lot of my blog, too - so thanks a million GUNFIGHTER!!!
In keeping with the rules of the award - here are five fellow bloggers that make me think and make me look a little harder at the world I live in. Sadly, I could ONLY name five. There are so many more that I enjoy and those are listed on the right side of my blog!
