Blogs that Make You Think


The meme of the week seems to be Blogs that make you think. I found myself nominated by both Golden Silence and Mother of Invention. I asked myself why, after recent posts had dipped to a new low level on topics ranging from dog poop collection to nothing to write about. But nonetheless I was honored that these readers and others keep checking in.
So now it’s my turn to nominate Blogs that make me think. I seem to have developed a fairly close-knit Blogger community, so many of the people GS and MOI nominated are my favorites too. However, there are more that they didn’t mention. So here are my nominees:
MediaConcepts: I met Matt at the last big Blogger happy hour I attended. I hated the place, some bar in the Dupont area which started with a "G". But it was worth it to discover his Blog, if nothing else. He’s now living out west and many of his posts take on the flavor of southern California. He rants about things that matter and then throws in a humorous post just to balance the rants. He does his homework and finds/takes great pictures. He’s one of my favorite male Bloggers.
Draw-Conclusions-on-the-Wall: This is not a paid endorsement, although David is my husband. He has always been a great writer. His 6 posts over his first year of Blogging illustrated that. Now he’s posting on a more regular basis. He is one of the most technically savvy people I know, so he of course has migrated to Wordpress and customized his Blog to the limit. But he also has interesting things to say. He throws out ethical and moral questions. Then he too reverts to taking movies of our silly prodigal dog.
InfiniteConnections: Aileen appeared on the Blogging scene sometime last year. No one I know has met her, but she has acquired quite a following. I recently told someone that I view her as the next Washington Cube. She offers real life situations which pull at your heart strings and make you remember similar times in your past. She cuts to the chase and tells it like it is. I loved her recent post about male Bloggers. Any time you come to Infinite Connections you know there will be something of substance.
Avocado-in-Paradise: She is a young one, easily young enough to be my daughter. But she writes with a maturity that belies her age. Her taste in topics is extensive, but includes many of the same things I write about. She occasionally offers up a U-tube gem, always a good way to entertain. I hope she stays with the DC Blogging community.
GoldPoppy: Reya offers us the world in pictures with reality turned on its head. She has this unique way of looking at things that is almost kaleidoscopic (is that a word?) Reya was the person who enticed me to Blog, and even though our Blogs are as different as night and day, we both have a similar track record in publishing frequency. You can fly high and dip low with Reya. You can never be sure what the day’s ride will offer.
Ulysses: Here’s a new Blog that sports only a handful of posts, but they are the kind that leave images in your head and give you something to chew on for days. He is a master at dialogue and there is obviously a romantic heart of gold under that big burley exterior. Go read Ulysses when you have more than a minute or two because he writes a novel with every post. But they are all certainly worth the read.
I read so many other great Blogs, some daily, some here and there. But these are just a few of my favorites that were not covered by those who "sponsored" me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
And if you were mentioned above, it's now your turn!

Congratulations on the recognition and thank you for mentioning my little project.

Okay, I've got a post currently in process, and they don't let up on me when they're that way. Don't think I've dropped the meme, that post I'll cobble together to get in done within my particular idiom.

Barbara- you definitely deserve the mention. I would agree with GS and MOI, because you would be on my list too...

Thank you so much for the mention! I certainly have learned a lot from the experience.

Thanks for the nice compliment! I hope we both stay with the dc blogging community for quite a while! It's harder to take time to blog when you're happy though, but worth the effort.

Blogs have the ability to make us thing about their subject....The only requirement is to have valuable information....and another one, to let a place for interpretation because that's how they could make us think.....what if?

Articles with pros and cons about a subject are also very good because we analyze if the owner is right or not .....and that means thinking:)
