Thinking Blogging by a Thinking Blogger

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:

  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


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.

  1. Gavin, I’m a little tardy to thank you for naming me a Thinking Blogger. I’m honored you chose me.
    Someone named me previously. Do you think I could cheat a little and name another five? 😉
    I’ll note this on one of my next blogs!
