thanks diva

divajood has graciously bestowed upon me the prestigious thinking blogger award- and coming from her- that is really an honor. i will do my best to live up to it.

The rules are simple:

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.

why am i not surprised?- changeseeker is a must read to get the gray matter going. she tells it like it is but also lays it out for you to find for yourself. looking at people as people regardless of color or race is discussed but it is really secondary to digging under the surface of what your own life is made up of.

fetch me my axe- belledame 222- insightful and honest- she has discussions at her place on a variety of topics but they really are debates and discussions. down and dirty sometimes but always thoughtful.

landsker- you probably won't always like what you see or hear at landsker's- because it is honest. i always learn and i always go away thinking. i can't thank him enough for post ideas :)

on the lake front- i just caught up with lara croft in the forum at the sirens chronicles. her posts there got me thinking quite a bit. feminism, philosophy, fun stuff- it's all that.

south by southwest- thoughtful and thought provoking- carol doesn't just post information- she puts it out there to think about and talk about. i find myself reading and thinking every time i go.

this is by far one of the more difficult posts to come up with. it is really difficult to stay at 5- but hey- i am nothing if not a conformist :) thanks to diva and thanks to all of my blog buddies out there who have caused me nothing but sleepless nights and carpal tunnel- from the inspiration :)

Congratulations on your award. Some of the blogs you mentioned, I know already.

The Thinking Blogger Award went around about 70x, until its inventor received it.

betmo, I bow in gratitude for making your list of thinkers. You rightly must head the list, not only for being a thought-provoking writer, but for your authenticity as a blogger. You never pull your punches; you're my role model for honesty. Thanks for your blogging dedication.
