The Thinking Blogger Award - Who Me?


My thanks go out to Clifford Garstang who has awarded The Thinking Blogger Award to yours truly. It was either me or "The Poetry of Making Fishing Tackle" Blog. Let me tell you it was a close race. Anyway who would have thunk it?

Apparently in order to fulfill my obligation I must notify the recipients to whom I bestow this honor to, of the following conditions:




  1. Acknowledge the origin of the meme/award



  2. If you are tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think



  3. Optional: Display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote using either the gold or silver versions of the award.)

This was a hard choice and I might have chosen 5 different blogs at some other point in time. But without further ado I nominate:



sonnets at 4 a.m. - Greg Rappleye's blog that is a treasure trove of insights and information on ars poetica.


this is all your fault - Christine Hamm - who consistently posts her poetry - which can kick ass any day of the week.

Robert Peake: Code Poet - Whose namesake writes some of the most refreshing posts on the craft that I have had the pleasure to read.


Chicks Dig Poetry - Sandra Beasley who wrote through NaPoWriMo like there was no tomorrow - each and every poem a well-crafted piece.


One Poet's Notes - Edward Byrne's blog that presents ongoing personal commentary about notable recent books of poetry.

"...some of the most refreshing posts on the craft that I have had the pleasure to read." As my wife is wont to say, "that's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me."

Seriously. Thanks.

Hey, thank you! I've been trying to get the blog momentum going again, and this is a perfect incentive. Congrats on your own recognition, too...that fishing tackle didn't stand a chance.

Shann,

Thanks. I gotta admit that I didn't see this one coming. Still, when you're a poet like me, it's nice to get some recognition in any form.

Sandra,

Glad to provide an incentive for your continued blogging.... Oh, I don't know that shop bass tackle is pretty exciting stuff. ;-)
