Put That In Your Pipe And Smoke It

Ok, I'm really bad at keeping up on the bloggy world as far was awards go. I don't mean to be. I don't want to be. There are so many great bloggers out there. So many great posts.

I think they (the awards) are a great idea. I think they are wonderful at recognizing the bloggers and their posts for a job well done. It is great to have the spotlight on your blog, on your writing. Too often (for me anyway) I lurk, I read, and I don't let the writer know what their work meant to me. I need to work on this.

I get very embarrassed when the spotlight is turned on me. I've only received one award. Until today.....and last week. Slackermommy and Pippajo - over at The Knut Hut - have both awarded me with the Thinking Blogger Award.

I'm honored and flumoxed.
And I don't know what to do about this because a lot of the people that I would pick have been chosen already.

I think most of you know the rules but here they are just in case:

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, for the 5 People That Make Me Think:

1. Jen over at One Plus Two - I know she's been awarded with this....and probably a bazillion times over. And it is well deserving because she's just.that.damned.good. There are too many posts to mention. You just have to go check her out. Dig in her archives. You won't be disappointed. She's truly a beauty. And her writing is beyond beautiful.
2. Deb at Tired Mummy - She's relatively new to me. Deb is so brave to share the pieces of her life, her struggles, her humor. She gets me thinking time and again. I don't often comment over her way...because she leaves me speechless time and again.
3. Jess over at Oh, The Joys - Again, another repeat "offender". Joy gets me thinking about how I need to wear Depends everytime I visit her blog. She is damned funny and damned thoughtful in her funnyness. Little firecracker, she is. And I luvs it.

There are two blogs that I read frequently, but haven't commented - hardly ever if at all. But they do get me thinking and I feel I do have to acknowledge them.

4. Sweet Juniper - They are just too cool for school. The writing by both Wood & Dutch is funny and though provoking - even Dutch's Sweet Juniper Press among other projects he shares.
5. Grace - Again, her writing is just simply put: Beautiful and she gets me wee noggin going.

Again thank you, Slackermommy & Pippajo. So sweet. Lovely, lovely ladies.

Congratulations and now I'm embarrassed. And I didn't know that Oh the Joys name was Jess, I always think of her as Joy, now I just have to rethink everything.
