The user Family Man at Build Tomorrow Another Day of Life nominates David Bohl for The Thinking Blogger Award. The thing is to identify “5 blogs that make me think.” There are some rules and they are: you get tagged you have to put five links to blogs that make you think, link in your post so it is easily accessed by others, and, as an option, display the “Thinking Blogger Award” on your page with a link to the post. Check out the five blogs that make me think.
This award was originally created by blogger Ilker Yoldas whose aim was to:
“offer content that is interesting, informative and things that could really help my friends who are reading it.”
The mechanics are to identify “5 Blogs That Make Me Think” and the participation rules are as follows:
- If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
- Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
- 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).
The blogs I have chosen are under no obligation to accept the award, link back to me, or carry on the meme. I’ve listed them simply because I enjoy reading them and, as the award states, they are 5 Blogs That Make Me Think.
Here they are:
Bob Sutton’s Work Matters – Professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University and author of The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn’t, Bob understands.
Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist – Penelope Trunk the author of the book Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success. She is a career columnist at the Boston Globe and Yahoo Finance. Penelope writes to Gen Xers and Yers, but her experience and lessons are translatable to all generations.
Carmine Coyote’s Slow Leadership – You won’t get any 100 word posts here. You’ll find real issues with a Quick Summary, a real-life experience or example that one can generally relate to, then an in-depth exploration of the issue.
Steven D. Levitt’s Freakonomics Blog – You never know what you’re going to get, but you know it will be interesting. Sometimes it may blow your mind.
Steve Pavlina.com – Steve has a burning passion for personal growth.
These folks make me think.
