Announcing the Mercury Rising Thinking Blog Awardees!

Posted by Charles II on June 26, 2007

Thanks to Freckles Cassie for bringing the Thinking Blogger Awards to out attention and apologies to DDay for not picking up sooner on his mention in April of these awards (this kinds of chain-linking is used by the commercially nefarious to boost Technorati rankings for marketing sites, but the virtuous can use it to boost the rankings of small and excellent blogs).  

Drum roll please…

Mercury Rising unanimously awards the Thinking Blogger Award to:

in the category of Personal and Life, the final award goes to…

And to think we knew them before they were famous. 


Congratulations, you won a !

Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the 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 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 (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

    To show you my gratitude I’d like to send you all a home-made cheesecake.

    Award totally undeserved, but thanks to the three of you! I’ve been slowing down my blogging a little bit – you may have noticed – because it’s summer in Europe and as you know, Europeans do tend to take longer vacations, or several short ones (I’m in the latter category). But it will get back to speed soon. :-) Happy summer, BrunoG

    I’ll look forward to your renewed posting, Bruno.

  14. Me too!
