Thinking Blogger Award


Many thanks to Stephanie for nominating me for this Thinking Blogger Award. I have already found a spot to put it for now. See it over there at the top of the sidebar? Now I am required to nominate five others and link this post back to the award's originator HERE. I have thought for two days, trying to decide whom to tap. My decision has been made the more difficult because most of those I read regularly have already received the award, making me a Thinking Reader, as well.

My choices, should they decide to accept the award, are these excellent bloggers who give me a lot to think about:

Margreet of Margreet's Musings
Ursi of Ursi's Blog
Isabella of Magnificent Octopus
Sharon of Bibliobibuli
Matthew and friends of Chattanooga Energy Hub

You, my friends, shall receive either a gold or a silver award, your choice. The award, which has been traversing the blogsphere, comes with a challenge. Those who have been awarded are asked to name five others they would pass along the “thinking blogger” torch to. I read other people’s blogs for many reasons: good writing, a sense of humor, a glimpse into a lifestyle unlike my own, or the blogger’s unique personality. I read to learn, to be inspired, and to enjoy good pictures. Now it's your turn to choose five. Go for it!

Tank you - thank you - thank you so much!

Did you see my other blog?
http://www.eso-garden.com

Maybe you like it too??

Yes, Ursi, I also like your other blog: "Ursi's Eso Garden." Maybe it's more of a thinking blog.

I especially liked "Gods, Mythology and Religion of Ancient Egypt" that you posted there a couple of days ago. I have taught "Religions of the World" for over a decade and am especially interested in Egypt's one-time monotheism that basically did not survive Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), the pharaoh who instituted it. Would you like for me to change the award to your other blog? I can do that.

Maybe you would be interested in two other blogs of mine:
Bonnie's Books at http://bonniesbooks.blogspot.com and Continuing the Quest at http://continuingthequest.blogspot.com

I may write something about Akhenaten at "Continuing the Quest." His religions new creed sounds very familiar, doesn't it? Change the names and we have the Islamic creed: "There is no god but Aten, and Akhenaten is his prophet."

Thank you Bonnie; I am honored!!! I will take up the challenge, the only 'problem' is how to find 5 blogs that haven't already been nominated. But I'll find them!!!
