Upon reading through the blogs I missed while I was away, I came upon the fact that both Fusion and Oblivion have nominated me as a "Thinking Blogger"!!! Who?? Me??!!!

I'm honoured and more than a little humbled that two great bloggers would think that of me.

The rules:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, not including the one who nominated you.

2. Link to This Post so that people can find the exact origin of the meme.

3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

My five are (bearing in mind I can't vote for those who have voted for me) :

Steve - he's been a little quiet of late, but I'm hoping that he gets back to writing more, to sharing more of his thoughts.

Sunny - this woman is my dear dear friend and constantly inspires me to think, and even challenge my own thinking.

Sally - will just come out and say it. Like it is. She'll make you laugh, make you cry and help you understand.

Deb - I truly am in awe of this wonderful woman. She meets her challenges with such dignity and integrity. She's a beautiful, insightful writer.

Ian - this sensitive, thoughtful man has no doubt been voted for elsewhere. But he's definitely on my list too.

I couldn't stop at five, so I'm adding an additional two (I never did like too much rigidity):

Jonas - what an exceptional mind and ability to express, this man has.

Mist1 - one thing's for sure, Mist will make you think about things you've probably not thought about before - or at least never admitted to it!

Like I said, I'm honoured and humbled and I really don't feel I have a place on any such list. All I do is tell it like it is, and I let the thinking come from that.

Congrats. I am still holding out for the Drinking Blogger award.

Fusion said...

You always pull out the best pictures for your posts too, Fiona!

Where do you go to get them?

Hi Fi. Yep, Emily got to me first. But I'm not sure I want to play. I keep to a very select few in Blogland, and get confused when I stray outside the circle.

Oh, and great to have you back. You were missed.

Fiona said...

Mist - I'll be the first to nominate you when that award comes round ;)

Fusion - mostly I use www.inmagine.com because you can register and get really good res pics for free. This time I had to go to google images as I was looking for a close-up of Rodin's Thinker and inmagine didn't have one :)

Ian - You're popular ;) It's a bit like a blog chain letter and has to stop somewhere *L* ..aawww don't be afraid of straying, just pin a note to your shirt saying 'return me to'! Thank you for missing me :)

Jonas said...

Aw shucks, Fiona, now you've got me feeling all humbled and honored...

Thank you!

Matt Kohai said...

Heck, Fi, you've made me think more than once, so yeah, you deserve it.

Sunny Delight said...

Ah my dear friend, talking about someone who constantly inspires....that is you.

I am honored that you chose me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This will take some thought on my part, you have chosen the very few I have spent my time reading in recent weeks, sadly, I am been very negligent in my blog reading...but you have also led me to a few other blogs, that are very worthy of the honor.

big BBGR! Hugs.
