A Writer’s Words, an Editor’s Eye Receives the Thinking Blogger Award!

Laura Spencer at Writing Thoughts has awarded the Thinking Blogger award to this blog.

Iker Yoldas at The Thinking Blog created the award and describes the award and the rules in Thinking Blogger Awards. The award recognizes blogs that make people think, and those who receive the award then pass the award on to five blogs that make them think.

Laura said:

Lillie’s posts are thorough and comprehensive. When Lillie writes about something, you can be sure that she has studied it thoroughly.

I’m honored to receive the award and appreciate Laura’s words.

One of the reasons I love blogging so much is the opportunity to learn. When I took the Now Discover Your Strengths assessment, I ranked very high as a “learner.” I enjoy learning from other bloggers and appreciate blogs that make me think.

I had to really think about who to select, as I read a number of blogs that stimulate my thoughts. Here are the five I selected:

  • Helen Ginger at Straight from Hel. Although Helen’s blog is fairly new, she has been making me think about writing for years through her newsletter. I’m glad she’s joined the blogosphere so I don’t have to wait for her newsletter to benefit from her excellent writing advice.
  • Hummie at Hummie’s World. Even though I’m not a scrapbooker, her blog makes me think about and appreciate my blessings. She introduced me to faithbooking, a concept new to me.
  • Lisa Vella at Getting It Write for You. Her posts are encouraging, inspiring, and thought-provoking – about writing and about life.
  • Manchild at When Least Expected: Inspiration To Brighten Dark Days And Lonely Nights When All Seems Lost. Manchild’s posts make me both think and feel.
  • Yuwanda Black at Creative and Editorial Freelancing. When I read the specific tips and bulleted lists of advice for freelancers, I always think about how I can apply these tips to my business.

Thanks again to Laura for recognizing me, and thanks to all the bloggers who make me think.
