You Like Me, You Really Like Me!

Kathy from The Carnival Inside my Head nominated me for the Subversive Blogger Award and as "scary" as the word subversive sounds, this is actually a compliment, one that is particularly meaningful to me.

The description for this award is as follows:

“Subversive bloggers are unsatisfied with the status quo, whether in church, politics, economics or any other power-laden institution, and they are searching for (and blogging about) what is new (or a “return to”) - even though it may be labeled as sacrilege, dangerous, or subversive.”

Here are the rules:

1. If you are tagged, write a post with links to five subversive blogs.

2. Link back to this post on JakeBouma.com so people can easily find the origin of the meme.

3. Optional: Proudly display the “Subversive Blogger Award” somewhere on your blog.
That’s all there is to it.

Keep in mind that this award is meant as an encouragement to bloggers to keep doing what they’re already doing - being subversive (however you interpret it). May we never forget that Jesus (and His message) was the original and ultimate subversive.

I nominate:

David, over at Imagination Conversion (I would nominate Mak too, but she's been nominated several times already, I think).

Terry over at Ornaments of Grace. We disagree on many things, but also agree on the important things. Disagree or not, she definitely challenges the status quo.

Mike Clawson over at Emerging Pensees

Linda over at Christian Feminism

Derek over at Rebel God.

All these bloggers challenge the status quo in their own unique and creative ways. Thank you all for giving me something to think about.

As for me, I have been in a bit of a blogging slump. I am officially finished with school, but I have been working a lot and am currently on the hunt for a full-time job. I can't seem to find the time to put together anything compelling. On a personal note, I've been in a very private, introspective mood, kind of keeping to myself and thinking over a variety of things. I've also been reading two rather depressing books, which are proving to be extremely beneficial for me, but are depressing nonetheless. All of this to say, my blogging well is running dry at the moment. But after tomorrow, things should settle back down, at least in the busy department.

Well, I am honored! Since I know you mean "subversive" in a good way, and my posts have been pretty ornery of late (subversive to some for sure), I thank you for thinking of me.
