Thinking Blogger Award

Thinking Blogger AwardWell I have been awarded a Thinking Blogger Award very kindly by Amanda over at Imago Dei! I am not much of a meme guy, but this was quite gracious and figured I could use to to point to some of the blogs I enjoy reading that really make me think. UPDATE: I have also been honored by Lillie Ammann with the Thinking Blogger Award over at Thinking Again … Still?. Thanks Lillie!

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).

It is hard to pick only five as there are numerous blogs that I read that really make me think. Here are five that you should definitely check out (although you should also visit my Blogroll and Friends List to check out a variety of the blogs I read). (In no particular order.)

  1. John Stackhouse - Professor at Regent College who is quite knowledgeable about a wide range of issues.
  2. Not So Fast - Kristin Hoppe always provides great links that make me think (and/or laugh).
  3. Instapundit - Glenn Reynolds is an obvious choice I suppose. He is the master linker that provides information from all over that forces me to think about a number of different issues (but especially politics).
  4. Tom’s Astronomy Blog - Tom always seems to be a step ahead of me, he always has great stuff pertaining to science news.
  5. Shofar, So Good - While Julia notes that she “think[s] people think I think too much,” she is good at asking good questions.

Is that already five? Humm, too bad. There are lots more. (I am really tempted to list a number of others… but I will restrain myself, go check out my Blogroll.) I think these five are a good variety (both in size and scope) that you should enjoy!

    Thanks, Matt, for the honour of this mention. I’m so bloggically-illiterate that I hardly know what a “meme” is, so I can’t really participate in what seems like a lovely game of relaying esteem. But I appreciate your kindness and will try to be a “thinking blogger” also!

    Most memes are fairly silly and not worth participating in. I figured this one would at least be good for pointing out some of my favorite writers (of various sorts).

    Thanks for stopping by John, since I’m not taking classes up at Regent, I can at least hear a few of your thoughts in a different form.

    I’d like to thank the Academy, Al Gore, the WordPress team, the gaffers, and all the little people that have made this moment possible. You’re beatiful, every one of you… You like me, you really like me….

    Hey, I love the “5 things you already know about me” and “3 things I really hate about memes” memes.

    Really, thanks.

    Congratulations Matt… I’m probably more of a “what was he thinking” blogger. :)

    Yeah, the memes that directly refer to memes are definitely difficult to stay away from… /sarcasm

    Haha, yeah, I think I get that a lot too Tony, I am hoping to get that award later this week.

    Thank you Matt for the honor! I passed it along as well.

    I certainly do more question-asking than answering… but I hope the answers are out there somewhere *cue slightly sci-fi background music*

    Great recommendations, Matt. Thanks!
