I received a Thinking Blogger Award from Seasonal Soundings (who sponsors the great Seasonal Book Challenges). I am very thankful for her award and the way she inspires my reading.
I'm a little late posting my five choices since my computer time was limited this week. It's hard to choose just five but here are my choices (in no particular order), which you can see are rather eclectic...
I'm king of cheating because my first "blog" is actually...two! However, they are so similar I can't separate them. I actually do read them one right after the other. I have long lost my interest in following politics but I can read both of these blogs and at least know all the major "players".
J-Walking is David Kuo's very interesting political blog. David wrote the book called Tempting Faith and worked in the Bush White House. Joel Rosenberg also has a great political blog. Although known as a writer [THE LAST JIHAD (2002), THE LAST DAYS (2003), THE EZEKIEL OPTION (2005), THE COPPER SCROLL (2006), and EPICENTER (2006)], his take on what is going on from a Christian perspective is very interesting.
The other four are blogs that often teach me something new and fresh are...
I love reading Copperswife's blog, just darn good information in such a chatty way that I feel I know her. As a homeschooling mom, she often makes me think!
Lainiersbooks always makes me think...sometimes of music, sometimes beauty, often about books. She doesn't post a lot but when she does...beautiful!
Homeliving Helper always makes me think about what it means to be a wife, mother, and maker of the home in today's world.
Sallie at A Gracious Home is always interesting to read. You can tell she is a very thoughtful writer, especially when that cute baby lets her have a good night's sleep.
So...these are my five-ish picks for the Thinking Blogger Awards. All "winners" are challenged to think of their own five.
(It would have been easier if I could have picked 10!!) :)
