Thanks to rockin' Diane at Bringing Home the Word (as well as at The Word, The Catholic Colbert blog) for nominating me and her kind words about this blog.
And now I get this very pretty badge!
Apparently the clue is to nominate five other blogs written by women that rock. Apparently a number of my ilk have already been named to this august honor. That, combined with thoughts such as "That one rocks--oh geez, he's a guy too....", presents a dilemma. Women out there, you need to blog more. Yes, I know we're busy essentially taking care of the cosmos and all, but really. Remember: The hand that rocks the blogosphere rules the world.
So that said, I'm trying to nominate people who have not been nominated by others, and will be inevitably leaving people out. My five nominees from all over the Catholic map:
Adoro at Adoro Te Devote. I don't know that Adoro and I would agree on every single thing, but we would agree on the biggest ones. I appreciate her transparency, her willingness to be bold and take risks for God, and besides, she's an alum of the university where I teach. (Which she kind of hated, but hey, we'll let that go.)
Sr. Susan at Musings of a Discerning Woman. The queen of Catholic Social Teaching meets prayer life meets vocational discernment!
Katerina at Vox Nova. She says things no one else does, and I, for one, appreciate that. Plus she's responsible for the awesome "Why am I Catholic?" video.
The Kitchen Madonna. Theology meets The Iron Chef. Yum.
Ask Sr. Mary Martha. Ok, so we don't know if she is really a she, or who this actually is. I'm not one to cast stones here. The blog totally rocks. Dear Abby can retire now.
