I Got Tagged - Blogs That Make You Think

I got tagged by Reconstitution, It's an honor to be placed in such a Tag Award, and I'll try to give the sites that makes one think.

The rules, created by The Thinking Blog, are thus:

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).

Below are the five blogs I chose that makes you Think.

1. Who Hijacked Our Country - This site is by Tom Harper, who seems to come up with information that most readers never knew about. I would say that I read his post's almost daily.

2. VARIOUS ECSTASIES - snave is the author of this site.... when I stop by and read what has been posted for the day, it's as if I've dictated to him what I wanted to say, but he writes it much better than I ever could.

3. Major Conflict - The owner of this site is J Marquis, and he gives you the MSM news combined with his little touch that makes it interesting. He always throw in a little comedy or photo's that makes you smile.

4. Liberty Lost - This site belongs to 1138, There is a lot of short posts that refer you to the original sites, which bring on an interesting comment section... but when a post is really put together, it really makes one think.

5. Funky Town Fighter - She will never cease in telling you exactly what she thinks about and issue. Funky town fighter use the kind of verbal rants that gets right to the point with no holding back.

Thanks for the mention. I think the "small" bloggers like us are adding up to a force to be reckoned with.

tom harper, you are tagged and must now if you are willing, tag 5 other sites that make you think and display the Thinkers award on your site... see the rules.

We smaller blogs are a force to be reckoned with, as stated on my post, your site and others are where we come to find out information and give our opinions about it... you my friend deserves this.

FunkyTown Fighter said...

Thank you for the mention. Hopefully the more we blog the sooner we can get these BASTARDS out of office!
P.S. You hit the nail on the head when you said I won't hold back! LOL.............

LET'S TALK said...

Now FunkyTown Fighter, it'll be fun to see just whom the five sites are that you find to be thinking blogs.

J. Marquis said...

Thanks, LT. That was a nice comment.

LET'S TALK said...

You deserved it J. Marquis, I hope you will now pick your five sites.

Lizzy said...

Good picks. I must concur.

LET'S TALK said...

Thanks Lizzy, you were in the run, but I know you've had test exams and could not devote a lot of time to picking five(5), blogs that make you think and such.

Hey, someone, can't remember right now who it was, tagged Fred the Cat as a thinking blogger. His ego went sky high and he was hell to live with for a while

1138 said...

Thanks for the mention and the comments.
Sometimes I just post links to things I think are interesting.
I really don't like doing that but it's as much for me as it is anyone else. When and if I can I add some explanation to it - lately that hasn't been often enough.
The length of what I write tends to be short because studies have shown that 98% or readers on the internet will not read or comprehend more than two paragraphs (or screens) and will either wander away or skip through what is written. So I decided some time back that I wanted to be read (even with some misunderstanding) than be skipped through and misunderstood.

I enoy reading your words and the owrds of all the people you picked, I'm not really sure how I got rated into your five but it's nice to be there.

I don't read the big blogs because I don't really believe that they represent, I believe they more often tend to promote.
My ideas are mine and I don't want to tell someone else how to think, I'd rather tell them what I think and see if they can contribute to those thoughts.

You an I are probably within 7 miles of each other, we really should try and get together sometime.

Thanks again

Hi pissed off patricia, I Patricia think that problem will come this way, there is a lot of sites out there that are great!

I know that my site doesn't even compare to others that I enjoy reading.

1138, your site brings a lot to the table and believe me picking the blogs that I thought were thinkers was not easy... cant wait to see the ones you all pick.

I did not know that we were 7 miles from each other, so yes, lets try to get together.

1138 said...

Oh we each pick 5?
That's going to tough considering you've taken several of my favorites.

LET'S TALK said...

Sorry 1138, but I'm sure there's 5 out there for you to choose.

Good luck and Congratulations!
