I Think, Therefore I Am

The ever-lovely Cathy has awarded JAQQ2 with the "Thinking Blogger Award." That's what we here at JAQQ2 aim to do. As our description says, our questions can be thought-provoking. Though, a lot of them are just silly! I feel inspired to write up some serious questions... Maybe later!

So, now I'm going to mention some blogs that make me think. Hmmm.

1) The Thinker from Theory of Thought. Her name alone is perfect for the award! Even though she's a teen, her posts are well written and often thought-provoking. Love it!

2) Liya from To My Pen, Forgive Me For Typing. She's a fellow teacher, and she gets me thinking about the different sides of education. But she also talks about life, love, religion, art, etc. She entertains her readers, while making them think about an aray of things. Good job, girl!

3) Mother Of Invention from Spilling Out! She's also a teacher. She, however, is on the opposite spectrum from myself and Liya. Liya and I are newbie teachers, whereas MOI is a seasoned teacher. It is great to see the experience she has, and that she survived it! That gives me hope! MOI also uses a lot of poetry, which is fun to read and analyze.

4) Klu from Get A Klu. This will take some explaining. This blog is written in the perspective of a Teddy Bear. The Kindergarten teacher in me loves it. It makes me think because I want to write children's books one day, and it helps me to exercise my imagination.

5) Silverneurotic from The Post College Years. I love her posts. Some of them start or end w/ famous (or not-quite-so-famous-but-still-thought-provoking) quotes. I'll spend a few minutes mulling each quote over. I enjoy giving my brain the workout! There are days that I really need that!

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.
