If you aren’t familiar with the Thinking Blogger Award, these are the rules:
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.
I’ve done the linkage above, that means it’s my turn to tag five people whose blogs have made me think. Ready now? Here we go.
April Martinez — Her blog has a lot of great information regarding cover art and how to make said cover art or how a particular cover came to be. It’s almost always funny on April’s blog, but this post in particular made me stop and think. How do other people perceive us? What does our behavior say about us?
Carrie Lofty — Her blog intersperses tidbits about writing with family life, insights on motherhood, book, music and movie reviews. Very electic, but always thoughtful. Here’s the post that made me think. Laura Kinsale even commented, how cool is that?
Cora Zane — I check her blog pretty much every day because I love her sense of humor. Here’s a post that considers the impact of ebooks vs print books, and I found it quite thought-provoking.
Dionne Galace — She has an irreverent humor that means nothing is off limits. This post was funny as hell, but it also made me think about the way religion influences sexuality. I’m not sure if that was her intent. Dee is kind of an Internet shockjock, but I’m never sorry I read her. She has a mind like a steel trap.
QB — She’s a contest judge and an avid reader of romance. I first went to her blog because she commented on mine (and I try to reciprocate whenever possible). I also add people to my blogrolling if they comment regularly because that’s how I make new blog friends. QB has a great sense of humor and is very knowledgable about the genre. Her insights are priceless. I loved this post. We writers don’t think about the reader’s point of view as much as we could, and I found this insight fascinating.
Well, that’s five. I wish I could nominate everybody on my blogroll, but the meme says five. So ya’ll take your shiny Thinking Blogger Awards and start tagging people.
