I have been nominated for the Thinking Blogger Award by Cathy.
Wow. I am very honored, but amazed as well. Who would have thought it?
To claim the award, I am to write a post with links to nominate 5 blogs that make me think. Here they are.
Sharon B's In a Minute Ago - A friend sent me a link to Sharon's Stitch Dictionary, and I discovered her blog from that. Since embroidery, quilting, and crazy quilting were my first textile loves, I was immediately interested in what she had to say, not only about textile embellishment, but about blogging as well. Her posts and links have caused me to think about myself as a blogger; not only about what I'm doing, but why I'm doing it and how to do it better.
I live on a farm - Firefly's wonderful thought provoking blog about life, knitting, and living on a farm. Her personal story is like something out of a story book. This is the kind of blog to settle down to read with a cup of coffee in hand.
Woven Thoughts - Sara Lamb's blog is a never ending source of creativity and inspiration. I love her style of writing, the information she shares, and her awesome projects. Loads of interesting things going on here.
a simple yarn - I love Cheryl's blog. I love her honest, down to earth writing style. I can relate to so much of what she says! I read, and laugh with her, or cry with her, because I've usually been there too.
Sheepshepherdess - Another kindred spirit. As she says in her bio, "I am a student of many things." That's something I hope I can always say about myself too! Not only are we talking sheep and fiber here, but her photography is absoloute eye candy.
Well, that's enough thinking for one day. It is one thing to simply react to something (blogs for example) emotionally; "I like that" or "I don't like that" withouth thinking about why. It's quite an exercise to figure out the "whys" of something, such as why a particular blog makes me think. It's been an excellent thing to do, but it's quite worn me out. :)
