I can remember how excited I was when I received my very first link to this blog. It was as if I had made a new friend on the other side of the planet. And I know that many others continue to feel this excitement — the joy of connection, a meeting of minds or a discussion in the offing.
So today I was excited to see a link from the very clever Mark Hancock (who has exceptional taste in guitars) nominating me as a "thinking blogger". He says some very kind words and makes me sound way smarter than I really am. But now, as a thinking blogger, I am now entitled to nominate five bloggers who
drive me crazy with their powerful minds make me think.
The way it works apparently is 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
So, my nominations go to:
- Leigh Himel — Must have a brain the size of the ecosystems that she writes about. Even a cursory glance can humble.
- Robyn McMaster — Goes deep into the brain to explain how logic and emotion works works scientifically. Take a look at what she says about the colour of your blog!
- Jen Stumbles — If you need a dose of insight then you can’t go past the Innovation Feeder.
- Tim Longhurst — Because those good looks and long eyelashes dazzle you while his brain run rings around your ideas.
- Darren Herman — Because he sent me a link to his blog today and I found this great post on the Expectation Economy — right when I wasn’t expecting it.
