MamaG at Mom to the Left has honored me by nominating Ms. Kitty's as a blog that makes her think and invites me to nominate five blogs that make me think. So I am going to try to use my limited linking skills and do so. Give me a few tries to get it right, okay?
First of all, a disclaimer: others have already nominated some of those whom I have in my bookmarks. And I notice that all of these blogs are written by women. Not that men's writings don't make me think, but somehow, these appeal to me in particular ways.
In mostly alphabetical order, I nominate:
Educated and Poor
Jubilata in the Desert
Mile High Pixie
Sexuality and Religion
The Thinking Blog is where it all started, if you're interested in participating.
Comments: I discovered Earthbound Spirit recently through a comment made on my blog. Educated and Poor comes from a college teacher in Georgia whose pets (one hen, Myrtle Mae, and several cats) figure heavily in her blog. Mile High Pixie is her sister, an architect in Denver. Jubilata comes from the high desert of New Mexico and is written by Judith Walker Riggs, one of my favorite preachers and colleagues, even though I don't know her except through her blog. Sexuality and Religion covers issues related to sexual ethics and social issues.
I would have nominated Linguist Friend over at ChaliceChick, except that CC was already nominated and I wasn't sure how to separate him out. But his posts and comments always challenge my thinking.
Now let me check and see if this worked.
This is one of those memish things, and those I nominated are invited to go to the Thinking Blog, follow the procedure, and nominate their own favorite thinkers. You can get a nifty banner for your blog if you want to.
