A "Thinking Blog" Award

Who'd a thunk it? I was tagged with a "Thinking Blogger Award" over at Two Write Hands I sure do appreciate that, knowing that someone thinks, amidst all my nonsense, that I am actually capable of thought.

The Award started at The Thinking Blog and has been passed along to me. Like I said, I do appreciate that, thank you.

The way this whole thing works is, I now give 5 awards to people whose blogs make me think. I assume the idea is to pass it forward, although I would be amiss not to mention that I enjoy reading Two Write Hands, a new blog on my list, and one that definitely keeps me thinking. I'm also going to try and give it to blogs that have not received an award yet, just to keep things moving. I like this idea. I'm also not going to name any AOL Journals since there is already an award over there.

Ok so enough with the disclaimers, huh?

My 5 choices for "Thinking Blogs" are:

  • Rules For A Reason Kristen definitely makes me think, and respond, as well as writing a journal that expresses a lot of thought.I don't think we should ever drive together, lol, because we share a common pet peeve there, but I really, really like the way this Lady thinks.

  • Miss Nemesis I never go away disappointed when I read this one. She shares a lot of great ideas, and when she wants to be, is very funny. Always gets me thinking.

  • A Little East Of Reality Chosha is on my must-read list daily, because she never fails to make me think carefully about what she's written, and I don't want to leave comments not fitting for a blog of this stature.

  • I'm Not Going Crazy This Lady never seems to miss. I can't tell you how nice it is to find someone who thinks like you do, and who just has a knack of making you see things in a new light.

  • The Daily Warrior Tammy probably doesn't know this, but she helped me get over myself, get past the nonsense, and get on with my life. Why? Because she is living proof that life can be wonderful, no matter what the circumstances. It sounds corny, but Tammy is one of my inspirations, as well as one of my heroes.

So there you have my choices. I think this is a great thing. The recipients will now get mad at me, but the other condition here is that they all, in turn, now need to nominate their own 5 choices for awards and pass them along. I hope they take this as the sincere compliment it was intended to be.
Please remember to tag your Blog with the award picture at the top of this post!


  1. jimmy--I am so honored. And seriously, if you weren't tagged yet I would tag YOU....because you make me think.

  2. Yay, you! Yes, you're definitely a thinking blogger, and I love some of your picks and will have to read your others. Tammy is one of my inspirations too, and she's definitely helping me get over the whining. Congrats again.

  3. What a neat idea! Maybe if I increased my blog posts I'd get nominated one day my own self! :)

  4. Congrats and thank you Jimmy! Your words touched me and I'm honored. I have received this award but I never thought to put it on my blog. I can definitely find a few more bloggers to give this to. I think we all touch each other in important ways.

    I still remember the first post I read of yours about the love you have for your kids as you left them at their moms. Your emotional honesty was beautiful and it stayed with me.

    Many thanks and hugs.

  5. Thanks Jimmy! And it's now given me a few more blogs to read after checking out your other choices. :)


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
