What An Honor

I was honored to find that I had been tagged with the honor of "Thinking Blogger Award" by CAPCity. It's an honor to me because it really took me a while to find my way here in blog land. There are so many good blogs out there that one can easily be pulled in the direction of someone they admire. However, I'm glad to be liked for being me, Rich in the STL or Mega Rich as I've been so eloquently penned by one of my good friends, Mr. CP Howard.

By accepting this tag it is now my duty to award 5 other bloggers with this award.

Here are the rules:

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 nomination.
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ icon with a link to the post that you wrote:

Next i choose, nominate, award the following: (Some of these folks may have been nominated, but it's just a testament to the validity)

1. Raw Dawg Buffalo - Torrence Stephens never ceases to impress me with his fresh diverse takes on everything. It won't matter if he is talking about Booty or Politics, you will be enlightened.

2. Saadia's World, Neurotica and Nonsense, Adventures in drinking - Saadia creates poetry like a wizard creates spells. She also adds a little lesson at the end so that you understand why she did what she did. She has some cool spots, go drink it in.

3. The Soujourner - When you read this brother you will come to the same conclusion that I did, The truth has arrived. This brother makes me think about myself as a writer. He makes me think about how I position myself in relation to Christ. Reading him, makes me want to be better, period. It's not about competition, it's about pushing the envelope and not selling myself short.

4. The Field Negro - with a name like that, just go and learn.

5. It's hard to give this final spot to one person because I like so many blogs, so I will dedicate this spot to the blog that I have yet to find. When I find it, I will complete the list.

I have to give shout outs to Darling Nikki , Dave and Shai - All three of these bloggers move me in different ways. One inspires, one makes me more introspective and the other makes me want to give more of myself in order to impact change. Now your job is to figure out which one is which. (SMILE)

Congrats to all, especially you Brotha Rich! Continue on your path...without a doubt you do inspire us all! And yes, we made some of the same choices, it's very hard to pick from so many wonderful blogs.

CapCity said...

I agree - choosing a "thinking" blog was a challenge when so many have got me to thinking!

I am so HONORED. Thank you, Rich!!! I'm going to work on my post now. :)

Dave said...

Rich, other people have said this, but I have to forward the idea, "inspire" is a great word to describe your blog. You inspire us to think, and for that we are very grateful.
