Damn Fergie!!! Now her crappy song is stuck in my head! *le sigh*
A little while back Doc awarded me a Thinking Blogger award. Okay, so she awarded everyone on her blogroll an award but by jove it still counts! Today I will give out those six awards and then in another day or two I'll give out the rest with a special Friendship Rose going out to one very special person.
Keep an eye out for a few of my old DotMoms posts on this blog very soon. Those of you who are new readers can have a chance to read something other than my usual dirty-mouthed crapola! lol. I chose my favorite posts so I hope you will like them too.
Here's how the Thinking Blog Awards work - These are Ilker's Rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. (I'm breaking this rule and giving out 6 because there are many who make me think)
2. Link to this post so everyone 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.
Meg of Get In Hang On- of course you're going to be my very first one awarded because you are one of the most amazing and smartest people I know. I'm so glad that we got to know each other while you were here. You are one of the few friends I had/have here and I'm so glad that friendship has continued. I don't think I would have made it through the first year of homeschooling Big B without your help. Thank you.
Jessica of Did I Read The Fine Print?- Not only are you my Mormon Puddin' Pop but you have also been a great friend over the years. You have taught me so much about so many things- Mormonism, what life with a big family is like (she's pregnant with number SEVEN folks!), and how to keep fighting for the things that mean something to me. I'm very glad to have you as a friend Kool-Aid, hot dogs, and all.
Robin of I'm Not A Writer- I am so jealous of how quickly you picked up knitting, girl. The things you make are awesome and I enjoy seeing each and every one. Thank you for always being there for me. You are another person who has been here through all the cancer, MEN2a, pain, and other BS that has become my life. You always offer an ear and a shoulder and I always know I can count on you. I truly treasure your friendship and hope it lasts for many many years.
Joy of Dante's Virgil- I think I found you through a comment on Doc's blog a few years ago and ever since I have enjoyed knowing you and reading your blog. You are so witty, intelligent, and fun. Those are all reasons why I know I could meet you tomorrow and feel like I've known you forever. Your love for your son is so strong and so inspiring. Thank you for being my friend and letting me into your world.
Cassandra at The Atheist Mama (two years and I still don't know her name!)- Your site is fantastic and where I always go when I've had to deal with a fundie or fanatic. Why? Because your site is filled with intelligent, thoughtful, and informational posts and it helps me to drop the anger and instead just read and learn. You were the first atheist blogger I came across and ever since then I've been hooked. Thank you for all you are and all you do.
Vicki & Joey of Where The FuhKaui?- This family is amazing and I am so jealous of their lives! This family has converted an old schoolbus into an RV and they travel the country with their children. The kids are homeschooled in title but actually they are life and everywhere schooled! Lucky kids. If you've never visited this site before then please read some of Vicki's posts. They have seen some really amazing things in their travels and they are alot of fun. Thank you FuhKaui family for sharing your world and teaching me something new everytime I visit your blog.
That's it for tonight. On Thursday I should be able to have the remaining 6 names up and then the last awards as well.
In other news- the total number of visitors for June was 2,083. So I didn't get any new action but I at least didn't go down either so I am very very happy about that!
