5 Blogs That Make Me Think

Since the Laundress has knighted me with a Thinking Blogger Award I shall go forth and provideth my list. I agree with her and that all of the blogs I read make me think. I have been taught, charmed, wooed, angered, and entertained by so many
great blogs it's going to be hard to choose, but here goes.

1. Dirty Laundry: As I stated in my previous post this lady can write. Her intellgence, wit and sense of humor shine through on all her posts and I love that she is interested in so many esoteric subjects. One of my favorite bloggers.

2. E-Notes: This is poet, professor, activist E. Ethelbert Miller's blog and what can I say-he rocks. He tells it like it is and he is always introducing an author or poet who I have never heard of before. Plus, his site keeps me abreast about what is going on in WDC.

3. My Marrakesh: This is my fantasy blog. This incredible woman lives in Morocco with her husband and two kids and they are building a guest house there. This is another woman who can write and posts the most beautiful pictures of her exotic world.

4. I have been reading this blog, well since the beginning. Jessamyn West's blog keeps me informed about library news and also about all of the cool things she does. (she's also a moderator on Metafilter, editor of Revolting Librarians Redux and a host of other things.). Check her out.

5. Cocktail Party Physics- I've noted before that I am a science geek (i was president of my high school's science club) and I love this blog. This is yet another woman (Jennifer Ouellette) that can write and she explains complex themes in lingo that anyone can understand. She has also written 2 books-Physics of the BuffyVerse and Black Bodies and Quantum Cats: Tales from the Annals of Physics.

So there they are. I have posted the rules below.

Congratulations, you won:Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.The 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).
