The Thinking Bloggers Award

Juka has thankfully provided me with my blog's first award, a thinkers award.

Ya ostaza Juka, i'm humbled by your gesture :)

History Of The Award:

It all started with one blogger, Ilkar Yoldes, who decided that all the tags out there are mindless and the blogs useless.

"Too many blogs, not enough thoughts!"

He started a new tag “5 Blogs that make me think”.

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).

It is difficult to choose 5 blogs since i am not sure which category we're talking about (i.e. political, social, religious, diary,...etc.).

Anyway, i'll try to choose one from each category i can think of (note: they might fit more than one category but i'll just mention the main one per my view)...

Here are the 5 blogs that made me think:

1. Baheyya blog (Egyptian Politics).

I have only been into reading about politics for about 2 years now. I have to say that Baheyya blog was\is an eye opener. Baheyya has so much information about different people from different political backgrounds. It's is very interesting to read what he\she has to say

(Note: the blog of course has been already tagged).

2. Zeinobia (News Commentary)

A bliss of fresh air in this world of Egyptian bloggers. She almost has the exact points of view i have about various news.

I was about to think that i am an alien out there in the blogging world, thank you for proving me wonrg :)

(Note: the blog of course has been already tagged).

3. Nousha (Culture)

Reading her blog makes me feel like an imbecile when it comes to culture (which i am, i have to say...lol). I have to say i am not into cultural events khales, but reading about them through her blog is very enlightening.

She is quite knowledgeable about culture and all the events happening around Cairo.

(Note: the blog of course has been already tagged).

4. Peaceful Muslimah (Life "From The Eyes Of A Muslim Woman")

An American convert, living in Qatar, and married to a Kuwaiti man. You can imagine what this combination is like and the stories and thoughts coming out of it. What i like most in her blog is that she is a "PROUD" Muslimah :)

5. Juka (Personal Diary)

No, i'm not balama3 goo7'! lol. She deserves it!
Her blog is one of the best looking and most organized Egyptian blogs out there.
Although she blogs about everything in life (from music to movies ..etc), I always feel it is a dairy of a young woman. Maybe because she blogs as if she's talking to her friends (mish 3aref).

Another thing you'll notice about her blog is, she might be a novelist in the making. She has talent for it. I think she should take it seriously.

God only knows what can happen :)

Note: there are other very good blogs, but narrowing it down to 5 only made choosing a pain!

Mood: Amazed!

Juka said...

I'm flattered!! Blushing and totally beside myself. To be chosen once is surreal but to use your votes that way is touching. I guess you are right, it has to end somehow.

Fadfadation said...

AS i said, You deserve it.

I am serious, why don't you try to study litrature and go pro?

Juka said...

Tried to go pro, tougher than you think. Newspapers want you to write news (rather than what you want to write), magazines want articles on stuff they chose rather than you! As for a book, never wrote something long enough, nor that worthy of publish from the point of view of Cairo's publishing community. Anything particular you read and met your fancy?

Fadfadation said...

Ramblings of the Disoriented Mind was done very well.

Why don't you start up by doing what magazines want and further on you can do something YOU think of?
