Blogs That Make Me Think

Willa very kindly nominated me for a "Thinking Blogger Award". Now I'm supposed to share five blogs (besides Willa's!) that make me think (and thus ones that I would nominate for a thinking blogger award). I have no idea if any or all of these have been previously nominated. At the moment, I don't seem to be able to narrow down my idea of what makes me think - these people/blogs make me think in significantly different ways.

Electroblogster... though he rarely blogs, we talk a LOT. Bits and pieces of our conversations end up on his blog, here, in my reviews, etc. :)

Clairity's Place... My big sister (and godmother) always makes me think. Her blog is no longer being updated, but she and I (and occasionally my mom) do some group blogging at the CIN Blog.

G.K.C.'s Favourite... Even though Dr. Thursday's blogg is also no longer being updated, there's plenty of material I haven't finished reading yet (and you can still enjoy his Thursday posts on the ACS Blogg). He's a great friend and a great mentor - especially in the thinking department - to our family.

Church of the Masses... I don't always agree with her and sometimes I find her a little caustic, but she has provided me with some wonderful insights into human nature and culture.

The Way of the Fathers... Mike Aquilina's is another blog I always wish I could have more time to read.

There are lots more that at least deserve some sort of honorable mention (the danger, of course, is in forgetting someone!)...

Karen Edmisten

Darwin Catholic

Lilting House

Cottage Blessings

Minnesota Mom

The Wine Dark Sea

Classic Catholic

...all the ladies who work with me on Love2learn - especially those who contribute to Unity of Truth, especially Suchi Myjak and Mary Daly

...lots of the TAC alumni listed here - Nutmeg, Suzanne Temple, Kristen Laurence, Cozy Tea-Blue House and Matt Lickona particularly come to mind.

I'm sure there are others too.

Alicia, I thank you!

I also agree with Kristen; that's a great family photo on your side bar.

Thank you, Alicia. I love to come here and think. :-)

I don't know how I missed this, Alicia. Thank you-- mine probably is more "eye candy" (as Geoff calls his pretty satellite images) than anything else, because I post pictures and let them tell our stories... With six homeschooled kids at home this year, time is scarce--to think. Yet I love to have the spot reserved .... and one day I will write more. In any event what I wanted to say was-- your blog(s) deserve every fitting blog award!
