Awards Stuff

Surprisingly (since I'm really not that deep), I was tagged by the lovely Katrice (http://katrice0321.blogspot.com/)as a nominee for the Thinking Blogger Award (http://www.thethinkingblog.com/2007/02/thinking-blogger-awards_11.html)

Here are the official 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 (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).


Some of the blogs on my list have already been nominated and I want to share pages you may not be as familiar with. It's taken me a while to think about the weblogs that seem to go a little deeper than the average blog. There are many sites that I visit regularly and that I admire for a wide variety of reasons, but the following really make me think:

http://www.mymixedcompany.com/wp/ is the first weblog that came to mind when given this assignment. Take your time in reading her pages. There's a lot to be learned here.

http://problemchildbride.com/blog/ is an amazing writer. Go take a look-see for yourself! I've only been reading her page for a little while and I'm already hooked!

http://kiyotoe.blogspot.com/ makes me deal with issues I'd sometimes rather skip, but I'm a better person/poet/writer because of his great influence.

http://amadeo.blogsome.com/ is an amazing weblog. He tackles a wide array of topics with honesty and insight.

http://www.restaurantgal.com/ is on the surface about the day to day running of a restaurant. It's really about life. Take a look and you'll be another fan.

There are other blogs that I love - really love, that will be honored in the future.

Thank you! Neither I nor my blog have never been nominated for a darn thing, and I consider this very cool, especially coming from your house!

Best, The Gal
