Gold Blogging Thinking Award

Back on Friday 16th March JMB awarded me the honour of a ‘gold thinking blogger award’. Dr Dork who was also awarded this label at the same time, side-stepped the three step rule award requirements in the following way, which I replicate here:
"1. Post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to (*original source blog*) which contains advertisements and solicits "donations" to its author. Maybe not.
3. Variation on 2. Definitely not.”
So, in the spirit of linking to 5 blogs which make me think, I offer the following, which are in no particular order:

1) Ellee Seymour – always offering a topical issue with plenty of debate.
2) Walking Dreams - daily beautiful descriptions of the British countryside in all seasons.
3) The Barrister Blog – For cutting edge legal debate.
4) Prague Tory – a leader in the political blogosphere.
5) Or so I Thought – a freelance writer who has entered the blogosphere with a storm.

There are so many more which I would like to have listed, as there are many quality blogs out there. Hope you also enjoy the blogs named here.

Hi Michelle,
Although I tagged you I never expected you to do anything about it, just a token of respect. But the best thing about this meme is that I get introduced to new interesting blogs. Ellee is the only one I know here so I'm off to check out the others. Thank you.

Well I certainly love Ellee's blog, and will look at the others!

You certainly deserved to be "gold", and many thanks for nominating me too, I feel very honoured. I've checked out the other blogs and they are all great reads, I also liked JMB's site and the story about the nuns and Alzheimers.

The concept of "thinking" bloggers is a little exclusive for me, but the way you framed the award was very flattering. Thank you very much.

Consider it reciprocated. A Gold blog if ever there was one. Thanks.

Michelle, I am honoured to be so nominated, and especially to be nominated by you. I make reference in my blog and link back to you, so expect more visitors. I also would have chosen Ellee, but you got there first.
Thank you again.
