When I'm tagged, I do my best to get out of having to respond. There is nothing I hate more than disclosing personal information. Less is known about me on a personal level, than even Sonia- Belle. My blog was honored by New Lines from a Floating Life with the prestigious "The Thinking Blogger Award",is not to be ignored. New Lines from a Floating Life is a real thinking person's blog. I was sold on it at my first visit. It is highly literate, concentrating both on literature and activism. The notes explaining why my blog was picked read,"Renegade Eye is one I have been visiting for quite a while, and sometimes comments come this way from there too. This is one very substantial blog. From Minneapolis, Minnesota, US. This blog is secular and socialist; influenced politically by Leon Trotsky, musically by Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, and the tango music of Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel, artistically by Pablo Picasso and Carlos Paez Vilaro. That gave me a few things to look up in itself! Much more Marxist than I am, but well written, well informed, and often refreshingly different". I think New Lines from a Floating Life is the refreshingly different blog that should be visited.
Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.
The participation rules are simple:
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 ([T]here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).
My five picks in no particular order:
Wordsbody Molara Wood writes from the Nigerian diaspora, usually about literature and art of African artists at home and abroad. She gives plugs to many struggling artists unselfishly, while she is an artist with words.
Desert Peace This blog never loses its humanism or decency, in a land that is always on war footing.
State Street Lynn posts almost everyday. You never know what will be on his mind. Whether its the pretty woman in the pub or starvation in Darfur.
Black Looks Is a group blog that is highly readable, dealing passionately with issues of African women.
A Poetic Justice Mark is the hardest working man in blogdom, with his several artistic blogs, speaking for the suffering.
