We’re very pleased to report that we’ve received a Thinking Blogger Award from Thought, Interrupted by Typos. We’ve been thinkers for some time, but we’re really new to the blogging, so it’s especially nice to be appreciated! Thanks, Thought!
The rules are as follows:
- If, and only if you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
- Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
- Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (there is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).
It’s taken us a disgracefully long time to figure out 5 blogs to link to, and to work out how to put our award up. (Actually, even formatting all the links was a struggle. We’re new to this.) But now we’re finally ready! Here are our five somewhat eclectic choices:
- From Monkey:
- A Muslim a Day The blog is run by an American Muslim, and the aim is to post a photograph of someone Muslim every day to show how diverse Muslim people are, and to put some human faces to the word, in an effort to combat prejudice.
- Afrigadget The wonderful Afrigadget shows Africans turning old junk into gadgets. Great source of inspiration for recyclers and re-users all over the globe.
- From Stoat:
- Mudd Up! It is predominantly a music blog – and well worth a listen – but the writer, djrupture, is quite provocative in his commentating on the goings on of themusical world, and prone to bringing a bit of philosophy into the mix – note his recent post appealing to speech act theory as a way of understanding recent music-world behaviour… Definitely a thinking blogger.
- From Edna:
- Ethicurean A blog about the ethics of food,agriculture, agribusiness, and sustainable eating.
- And, finally, me. I’ve had a really hard time thinking about what blog to nominate. I wanted to give the award to a feminist blog, and there are so many great ones out there. So today I settled on:
- The F-Word A great feminist blog with some excellent writing as well as important news items.
