It’s pretty cool when one of the smartest bloggers you know points to your blog as one that makes HIM think. So I was really tickled when David Reich included Drew’s Marketing Minute in his list of five blogs that make him think.
Feeling good about David’s nod was the easy part. Then, I kept reading and realized that I now had the difficult task of narrowing down a long list of blogs that make me go hmmm every day down to a measly five. Cripes.
So…here goes. I checked as best I could and it looks like these blogs have not already been nominated. If I’m wrong…enjoy the double dose of love. And check out my blog roll to see how many other blogs could have been on this list.
Servant of Chaos — Gavin Heaton is a marketing poet, pure and simple. And my partner in publishing with the Age of Conversation. Wickedly smart. His posts dig way past strategy to purpose.
Steve Farber — Author of two of my all-time favorite business books (Radical Leap and Radical Edge), Steve Farber is about life’s purpose, joy, leadership to the extreme and changing the world.
Logic + Emotion — David Armano’s blog is probably most associated with his graphics. But what puts it on this list for me are the questions David asks as he explores connectivity, conversation and consumer communities.
The Copywriting Maven — Roberta Rosenberg has a way with words. Her posts are never wasteful — every word has a job to do. She teaches, offers tips and asks questions that make me want to be a better writer. Update: And is snort your milk through your nose funny!
Success from the Nest — Tony Clark writes with conviction, experience and cartoons. Tony puts his readers’ through their paces. By going through them himself first. He’s a human guinea pig — and he invites us along on his explorations.
What do these blogs have in common? They ask questions and invite me to think. Thanks to all of you for making me go hmm.
And…here’s the rest of the prize package, according to the originator of this meme:
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 Drew’s post which says such nice things about you so that people can follow the meme’s trail,
3. 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).
