Here are the rules:
- If, and only if you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
- Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
- Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (there is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
Now the hard part. I have to choose 5 from the long list of amazing blogs I read. So, I've taken my daily read list, removed any that (as far as I could tell) had already been awarded this, and also very large and popular blogs. Here's my five, in no particular order:
Marginal Notes is one of my favourite feminist blogs. She takes no shit and I admire her for it.
A Canadian Lefty in Occupied Land for his long, well-reasoned, and thought-provoking posts.
Sand Gets in my Eyes, an American ex-pat in Saudi Arabia. From her I get a very different and valuable perspective on many issues.
Shmohawk's Shmorg helps me stay up to date on many underreported issues, especially pertaining to Aboriginals in Canada.
Thought, Interrupted by Typos not only has one of the best blog names out there, but has clear concise writing and a diverse set of topics.
There's many, many more. My blogroll is in need of an update.
