Thinking Blogger

Notice the above graphic in the sidebar? That’s the Thinking Blogger Award, handed out to Line Upon Line by Julana at Life in the Slow Lane. Thank you so much, Julana!

The rules of the meme say that I may now award the Thinking Blogger Award to other bloggers (five max). I would thus like to bestow this award on:

- fellow poet Darlene at Berg’s Ink. This pediatrician/poet is someone who can always think of a way to make a poem out of the everyday stuff of life.

- fellow poet Charlie at Poems by C van Gorokom. Though his poems draw inspiration from the the clear streams and piney air of northern British Columbia, their final focus is eternal themes.

- Accidental Poet (a.k.a. Hatchet Lady) one of my favorite poetry critiquers who doesn’t post poetry on her blog, but has terse (and funny) blogging down to a science.

- Poets Online - the blog, which is a companion to Poets Online. The thought-provoking poetry-writing prompts at Poets Online are explained and expanded in this excellent poetry blog.

If these tagged blogs choose to play, participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

Charlie, you're most welcome.

Poets online - I must admit, I'm grinning. Nice to see you spread the 'love' around.
