Laura in NJ has tagged me as a "thinking blogger". Right back at you, Laura! -- Sometimes I think a little too much, but I'll take the compliment.
Coming up with a list of five blogs that make me think is a challenge. There must be a couple dozen out there. (Thank you to Bloglines for helping me keep track of them! Bloglines tells me I am currently subscribed to 61 feeds! They're not all blogs, but still... Yikes!) Out of necessity, I'm going to exclude a whole swath of blogs, in the homestead / rural life realm, because frankly, I have to narrow it down somehow.
Head over to Maison Madcap, where intriguing questions abound. Madcap was the first one I thought of when I saw this meme. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Beo and Mia always have something interesting to share, on the greener side of the street. I know, it's cheating to do a 2-for-1 here, but you'll just have to hate me for it. Thanks to Beo for his garden tool report, and to Mia for her mention of SparkPeople.com among various other cool stuff.
Julie Zickafoose is a recent discovery - she writes about, illustrates, paints, talks about, and otherwise basks in Nature. For a living! My hero.
The Archdruid Report is for when you're in the mood for deep thought. The author is the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America. No, really. Who knew such an organization existed? Or, for that matter, that their representative would have so much interesting stuff to say?
PeakShrink's Peak Oil Blues blog covers the subject that haunts me most. And no, it's not Don Imus.
And finally, Scott Adams, the Dilbert guy, has an always entertaining blog. He's a shameless troll sometimes - doing cannonball dives into controversial subjects. But he makes me think.
Wow. Now I know why I don't do these meme things. I think I broke every rule and convention involved. And... I can't even count!
Uh oh. Here come the blog police. So that's what those black helicopters were about!
