Yes I know that phrase is cheesy and way overused but its kind of how I feel at this point after being nominated for this (which I'm not sure I truly deserve)
Although I am but a baby in the blogoshpere, Brillig the brilliant, wordly, charming woman that she is thought highly enough of me to bestow upon me this honor. If I could turn around and nominate her I would absolutely do so as she is an eloquent, passionate blogger and a must read for me.
But here goes - and this was a challenge for me as I attempt to spread my wings and learn more about all the talented bloggers out there.
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 this award.
3. Optional: Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog.)
1)Suburban Turmoil :Lindsay over at Suburban Turmoil is a a very talented, astute blogger that writes with flare. I found her through a Google Search for Dora (The Explorer) Twisty Puzzles of all things and spent the rest of the day reading her archives. Besides the fact that we share some similarities (step-parenting teens) I simply enjoy checking her out to see what thought provoking topic she might post next or what she might post to cause to me laugh out loud. She is seriously a hoot.
2)Rock Star Mommy She cusses like a sailor and even posted about it but I absolutely love her. She is frank ,honest and quite humorous (or for you rsm, shall I say funnier than sh*t)- all things I absolutely appreciate.
3)Crazy and In Charge I'm loving her more and more each day. She's real, she's candid and secretly I want to live her life after this post
4)Redneck Mommy Simply brilliant. She's smart,sassy and honest and truly I'd love to just spend the day hanging with her.
5)The Butrflygarden - Yes I know Brillig already nominated her but honestly she's deserving of multiple Thinking Blogger Awards. I did a double take when I saw her age because at only 24 she's wise beyond her years. She's sensitive and compassionate and I'll always have a soft spot for her because she was the first to comment on my blog
(note to non-blogging friends that are reading but not commenting: I'm really needy so uh...could you comment every now and then? K, thanks !)
