I am so flattered that Pam at Nature Woman nominated be for the Thinking Blogger Award. I wholeheartedly agree with her other nominees as they are all among my favorite reads. I've given lots of thought about passing along my nominations and here are my choices:
Larry at The Brownstone Birding Blog is one of my favorite blogs. His bird and song lyric games are a blast (I admit to being a bit obsessive about them!) and he frequently asks questions at the end of his posts welcoming others' opinions and always causing me to think.
Deb at Sand Creek Almanac is one of the first blogs I ever read. She a fellow Minnesotan so immediately my interest was sparked. Her posts are always interesting, often thought-provoking and she is an eloquent writer. I envy her lifestyle and admire her writing talent.
Cathy at Looking Up is a blogger I only met a few months ago but feels like a friend for ages. Her joy for life is woven into every word. She often reminds me to be grateful for things I take for granted.
Mojoman at Moose Hill Journal is a blogger that I always count on to challenge me to think about his posts. He is able to convey his thoughts clearly- I admire that as I seem to agonize over every sentence that I put down! His writing is beautifully descriptive and imaginative and I always look fore ward to "going along" on his trips to Moose Hill.
RuthieJ at Nature Knitter is the newest addition to my blogroll. Another fellow Minnesotan, Ruth's attention to the details of every day life are a pleasant reminder to watch and be aware of what's going on around us as it will enrich our lives. She's also really good at Larry's Song Lyrics Game!
Again, I am so honored to have been nominated and really feel that the five I've listed and all of the rest of you out there that have become part of my daily blogging have enriched and brought color to my life. I never would have dreamed that I would feel so welcomed and that so many strangers that I've never met would become friends.
