It was suggested that the rules be posted so that others may accept their awards and nominate more to keep out thought process going. Here is the quote from Yankeemom that will explain it a lot better than I can.
Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.
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.
One of the conditions of receiving the award is listing five blogs which make me think. This will be a difficult task as I visit many blogs with each one making me think in different manners and directions. Another thought to this is I would have liked to list Yankeemom, but that has already been done. As long as she knows I would have picked her, that is what counts.
It is difficult; as you find yourself not wanting to let those out that you visit often. Taking it down to five is not easy, but here they are.
I would have to begin with Redneck Central, Wild Bill’s outlook, comments and discussions of his life are wonderful.
Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers, thoughtful and at time can really make you say, “”I never thought of it that way
A Soldier's Perspective, where would any of us be without the insight of CJ, Cpl M and others. Cpl M is now back in the sandbox with his Marine unit and should be in our prayers as with all of the men and women serving.
How could I ever start my mornings without, Redneck's Revenge? Stop by the boys from Texas and get a dose of the truth, Texas style.
Last, but not least is, A Soldier’s Mind, I always find the writing real, informative and thoughtful.I simply cannot allow this to pass without two honorable mentions; both are non-profits and serve vital roles in today’s world.
One is New Parents Network, though it is not a blog, but a site with a wealth of information for new parents the world over. This site has always been near and dear to my heart and I highly recommend it to anyone who discovered that children do not come with owners manuals. Well, now they do at New Parents Network.
The other is just as near and dear to me, Honor the Fallen, and their opening explains it better than I can. “a nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to honoring the memory of American service men and women and government employees who have died while supporting the war on terrorism.”
