“Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use, do the work you want to see done.” Austin Kleon
Every day I check my site stats, I love to see how many people have visited & had a read or left a comment. It’s always exciting when someone links to your blog, especially if you’re a relatively new blogger like me. Not only is it interesting to see what appeals to people (and also what doesn’t) but it’s the ultimate procrastenation tool. It’s also a real buzz when you connect with people online who share your love of similar (or very diverse) things, you make you think differently, who are attracted to different kinds of content than you normally would be, and who broaden your horizons on a regular basis.
Gavin Heaton from Servant of Chaos has nominated me as a “thinking blogger” [original post here] and said some very nice things. Gavin has been really supportive of Innovation Feeder ever since I started which has made a big difference to me. I read his blog regularly & it’s really nice to have someone who takes an interest in what you do so thank you Gavin.
The way it works apparently is as follows:
If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote
So here are my nominations:
Max Lenderman – Who twists my brain a little every now & then with his blog on Experiential Marketing
Miel Van Opstal – Because when I need another juicy little insight or example for a workshop or presentation he always comes through with the goods
Erin Middleton – Offers great discussion around strategic planning amongst other things, puts a bit of buzz uptop
Katie Chatfield – who bite sized beauties I often flick through when I need a little pick me up
Laurel Papworth – Whose blog on social media & online communities is worth its weight in gold
