The Unexpected Happens

C.B. Whittemore not only Floors the Consumer - but floors me with her post on "Blogs that make you think". She honors - and surprises - me with the Thinking Blogger award on June 18, 2007. It feels good to get any award - any time.

I don't very often get tagged. Must be my quick reflexes - yuk, yuk!

The following five bloggers are ones that deserve the award - if they choose to accept it. They change the focus of my lens. They challenge me with their points of view. In short, they make me think. They make me laugh, cry and alter my thought process - all good and worthy. To them, I offer the Thinking Blogger Award.

I also find them to have a playful streak and thought they might be up for a game of tag :) - if not, that's cool too. Remember - it's almost summer -

Robyn McMaster - Brain Based Biz
Mark Goren - Transmission Marketing
Toby Bloomberg - Diva Marketing
Ryan Karpeles - Living Light Bulbs
Christina Kerley - CK's Blog

Here are the participation rules for the Thinking Blogger Award:

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).

There you have it!

Well deserved Bob. And thanks for the links to your 5. I have spent a happy half hour browsing. Sitting here in Edinburgh linking with folks thousands of miles away and confirming that globally we have far more in common than we have differences has given me a great boost to the day.

Thanks so much for thinking of me, Bob. You have no idea how much I appreciate this honour. I will send you a note when I post my five. Have a wonderful day!

C. B. Whittemore said...

Bob, what great selections for your 5! Thank you for accepting the award. It is well deserved!

Bob - How could I not accept your award after your too kind words? And may I say that One Reader at a Time also .. makes me think, challenges me and expands my perception of the world? Congrats! to you for the recognition to begin with .. I'm sure there will be lots more honors to come!

Ryan Karpeles said...

I was trying to think of how to say thank you, but alas, my thinking skills are struggling today. So I'll just keep it simple:

Thank you!

I'll be sure to continue the meme-tag, and I'll let you know when the next 5 lucky souls have been chosen :)

Thanks again, Bob. You make all of us think, and you're very deserving of this award.

You are all very welcome & deserving...each of you expanding the collective thinking of the common human being.

At least that's my feeling :) - and in a blog, I've learned, that's the main thing. Keep up with your good work!

Who else deserves more that you do. Congrats.

BobG said...

Thank you Dio - its a real honor, believe me.

Robyn McMaster said...

Hi Bob, I'm very honored that you selected me! Wow. To be truthful you make me think, too, so you lead the way! Thanks and I'll soon create my follow-up post!
