Thinking Blogs

Having been tagged by MWW for a "Thinking Blogger Award" (thanks!), I am now meant to nominate five others and pass the link-love back up the chain in this pyramid-scheme meme based on flattery and self-interest. Sure.

The participation 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 (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
Five blogs that make me think:
a. Faith and Theology - already nominated, I know, but if we're really going to make this movement feel elitist, we've got to keep it small...
b. The Blogging Parson
c. Alastair.adversaria - currently on a month long hiatus.
d. On Journeying with those in Exile
e. Chrisendom
If you didn't make the top five, guess it must mean that your blog is thoughtless and shallow - did I mention that this meme also works on fear of exclusion and relief when someone finally nominates you?

I avoided the fear and negative stuff by the simple fact of not hearing about the meme until I was nominated. :-)

It could be elitist, but this kind of deal can also be used to highlight good blogs that, for some reason, get less traffic than they deserve.

well - here's for all the thoughtless and shallow blogs out there (including my own!!) - but seriously...way to go Byron. If I can speak for others, your blog is truly deep and thoughtful and stimulating to read always. Thanks!

Hey, thanks, Byron!
An honour coming from you!
