Thinking Blogger


Kelly has also tagged me today as a Thinking Blogger. This award started appropriately enough at The Thinking Blog. Now I'm fairly surprised by this because, of late, my Blog's been fairly frivolous from a book-reviewing point of view - lots of raving about "Doctor Who" (Yes, I know TV drama is a form of storytelling - that's why I love it so much - aside from the current Doctor's gorgeous incarnation !), and witterings on about this and that. Not much, I'd have said, to make anyone think (except perhaps along the lines of "Is she ever going to shut about the Doctor Who/David Tennant obsession?"), at least compared to some of my earliest posts way back in July and August of 2005. Still, Kelly has declared me a Thinking Blogger, and who am I to argue with so multi-talented a woman ? (grins)

The rules are as follows:

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 (there is an alternative gold version of the logo if the silver version isn't to your taste!)

I'd quite like to tag some Bloggers that haven't been tagged before, but I've a sneaking suspicion it's too late in the day for that - so I'm not going to check whether these Bloggers have already been tagged, I'm just going to list five Blogs which I read regularly which make me think for one reason or another (in alphabetical order):

Jen Robinson's Book Page
Lowebrow Blog
Original Content
Wands and Worlds
Wild Rose Reader

Thanks, ladies !

Michele,

I'll work on it! Thinking is harder for some of us than others, you know!

Michele said...

And some of us should really be made to stop, at least occasionally !

Jen Robinson said...

Thanks, Michele! I'm happy to make you think from time to time. You do the same for me.

Michele said...

You're welcome Jen !

Thanks for 'thinking' of me, but yes, I've already been tagged but don't display the logo. Here's why:

I did actually know you'd already been nominated since I do read your Blog and had seen your comments. But since your Blog regularly makes me think, I wanted to acknowledge that fact with this list.

Michele,

I just posted my response, What One Thinking Blogger Has Been Thinking About, at Wild Rose Reader.

Thanks for the tag!

Michele, thanks. I appreciate the vote of confidence. I don't read as many child/YA lit blogs as I'd like regularly, but yours is always on my list.

Michele said...

Thanks, Elaine, for the thought-provoking post !

Lee, you're very welcome...

Michelle, I was already tagged, too, but appreciate being hit again.

Michele said...

OK, thanks for letting me know Gail.

I think I should add one more couple to my Famous Pairs from Biblical and World History: Michele the Scholar & Doctor Who!
What do you think??? Or maybe I could start a new list called Famous Pairs of the Kidlitosphere. I'd start with you and the Doc...then go on to Jules & Eisha, Franki & Mary Lee, and on and on and on.

Michele said...

*cough* THE DOCTOR *cough* (His name is not and never has been Doctor Who - that's just the name of the show...)

I wish he was mine ! *sigh*

Elaine Magliaro said...

Michele,

I didn't mean to make you have a coughing convulsion. I know the gentleman's name is David Tennant--but we all think Doctor Who when we think of you!!!

Michele said...

Elaine, the coughing fit was for the character's name, not the actor's. The character is called "The Doctor", the show is called "Doctor Who"...

And yes, the current incarnation is played by the gorgeous and talented David Tennant...
