Who'd a thunk?
I’ve been double nominated by The Smiling Infidel and Em for a Thinking Blogger Award. Does this mean the next time you want to visit my blog you’ll THINK TWICE? Ba dum pum. Thank you, I’ll be here all week.
After a bit of investigation, I discovered that The Thinking Blogger is not an alien tribute to Rodin's Thinker but is in fact a meme making its way around the blogosphere at an exponential speed. And so I shall ride the wave and nominate a few blogs that make me think. And heaven knows we all need more thinkage in our diets.
I still remember the first time I visited Radioactive Jam last October. I read this post and my first response was HUH? Once I figured out what he was saying (and followed up on all his footnotes), I was hooked. RaJ has a way of twisting my mind up in satisfying little knots. He is also the only blog I routinely read to my husband. I’m not sure what that means; just thought it was significant.
A recent but welcome find, Bub and Pie is a fellow college teacher but what I really love about her writing is its philosophical slant. She’s a mother who asks deep questions while blowing bubbles onto her kitchen floor.
Allysha at Bells on their toes has mastered the art of the “short but thought-provoking” post (something I clearly have yet to learn). Where my posts are Queen-sized afghans hers are delicate lace doilies. And I mean that in a good way.
Ann Kroeker is one of those kindred spirits who loves learning as much as I do. She writes about all sorts of things; I never know what I’m going to feast upon when I stop by her place. This analogy tying writing to life and near-death-waterskiing is a good example.
Moobs is another gifted writer passing as a mild-mannered British lawyer and sometime blogger. This post in particular knocked me out.
