#678: I MAKE SOMEONE THINK, AND FIVE PEOPLE MAKE ME THINK, AND THOSE PEOPLE EACH HAVE FIVE OTHERS WHO MAKE THEM THINK, AND SO ON, AND SO ON, AND SO ON. IT'S LIKE THAT SHAMPOO COMMERCIAL.

I have been honoured by one of my favourite bloggers out there, Sweetney. When I say honoured, I don't mean it in the way that it is used in speeches at boring events where everyone tosses around hyperbolic words like deeply and overwhelmed as though they really mean them when the truth of the matter is that they honestly don't even like most of the people in the room. No, I don't mean it like that at all.

I mean it honestly. I feel honoured. Sweetney did something lovely for me right when I needed something lovely by giving me a Thinking Blogger Award. See?

Thinking Blogger Award

It means that I make her think, and it might even mean that she likes me. Swoon.

So, here's the deal. This award is freely given to others by those to which it was previously freely given, meaning that it's in the form of a meme from The Thinking Blog called "Five Blogs That Make Me Think". The participation rules are simple:

  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five 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.

Without further adieu, here is my list of five blogs that I think deserve the Thinking Blogger Award. They are keen, keen folks, these bloggers.

Five Blogs That Make Me Think

  • I Blame The Patriarchy
  • Rekabek
  • Sweet Juniper!
  • Alec Soth
  • Wood S Lot

  • It's viral. It's potential exponential kindness. Now go, my five thoughtfuls, and make more thoughtful bloggers feel honoured. Unless, of course, this is anathema to you, which if this is the case, you should know that you've still got me thinking. Mm-hmmm.
