Second Time....

I have been awarded a second Thinking Blogger Award by Around My Kitchen Table - how nice of her is that?

I'm chuffed to little mint balls that anyone at all reads my drivel, let alone thinks it's worthy of an award, so I thank you very much and I will display it with pride.

I now have to choose 5 more recipients. People who's blogs make me think. This is difficult because I visit so many blogs and enjoy them all so much, so please don't be offended if I don't choose you, it's not because I don't like you, honest injun! I have tried to choose blogs who haven't already received the award but if you already have it I hope you will accept another one.
So here are my five choices...

Linda at Are We There Yet - Linda quite often ends her posts with a question - hence making me think.

Lettie at Lettuce-Eating - writes such 'from the heart' missives, you become really involved in what she is writing about.

Nea at The Southern View - writes about her life, her family, her surroundings - a joy to read.


Mike at Mike's Homefront - a recently discovered treasure. I love his writing and he has galvanised some of us bloggers into action with his new venture The Experiment (though it's not quite up and running yet). However, I will be honest here and say another reason I nominate him is because he has (unrequested) advertised my Grandmother's Biography on his blog and one good turn deserves another in my book. Thank you Mike. x

Last but not least, this may be breaking the rules a little bit but I'm going to do it nevertheless, by nominating two of Ruth's Blogs. Firstly There Are a Million Stories in the Naked City because it has made me really appreciate my life, what I have and what I have to lose, and was the first of Ruth's blogs I visited. Since then I have been introduced to Me, My Life, My Garden , which is not, as you might imagine, just photographs of Ruth's garden, it is so much more and a delight to read.


**********************

So there are my five choices, I hope you will all take a look at them and agree with me that they deserve the Thinking Blogger Award and I hope they will take part and display their award with pride.

To the Nominees.....

Should you choose to participate, please make sure to pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging.

The participation rules are simple:

If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think.

Link to the original post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme

Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Thanks for the award akelamalu. I will display it proudly.

Thanks for the kind words you said about my writing. I'd nominate you for this award but someone discovered you first.

I will participate in passing the award along to five others.

PS. The only reason I wrote about Gingervitus is I am a sufferer. :)

My daughter told me about it this weekend and I just have to start a campaign for the cure. :O)

Nea said...

Hi Akelamalu,and congratulations.......I will give this some thought.......see, i do think....haha

My blog really was started just for storage of all my poetry, and somehow it has become more of a diary. But all who come and read are welcome, as far as making them think......mostly they probably think they are glad that their life isn't as boring as mine. haha But I appreciate your recommendation! Thank you.

I am working in the yard today, I will get back to this tonight, okay.

Catch said...

Linda said...

Congratulations on being given a second award for being a Thinking Blogger! It just goes to show that people not only love your blog but it makes them think, too!

Thank you very much for my award (it's actually my second, too but I forgot to put it up the first time - shame, shame, shame on me!). I will do better this time and do a post in the next day or two. If someone is going to honor me with this, the least I can do is say thank you! And I do mean thank you!

I really need to get more organized!!

Akelamalu said...

Linda
Thanks chuck. You get those awards up on your sidebar - you deserve 'em!
