- List out five favourite links - the links can be of business sites, affiliate links or whatever that suits the blogger.
- Tag five more people to share their links, so hopefully, at the end of the tag, we would be able to share good links with each other.
- The links MUST be clean. No X-rated sites (which basically put my blog out of the running).
- List out only FIVE links.
- You MUST tell FIVE people you choose.
- Provide the link back to the person who tagged you. Obviously, it should be an active link.
I'm relatively new to the art of tagging. I was last tagged by Nyonya, which happened to be my introduction to tagging, and I didn't exactly follow through with the swing either. Upon reading the rules for this one, I can immediately surmise that I'm about to fail at executing it. To start off, I don't follow people's blogs as religiously as I think I should. The blogs that I do follow are not ones you can actually tag (read my list of favourite links and you'll understand). The blogs that I follow, that I can tag, have already been tagged by my tagger a.k.a. Nyonya. So here's a half-way effort of what tagging is suppposed to achieve i.e. a list of my favourite links:
1. Jason Mraz's journals I find this guy to be a literary genius whose ingenuity happens to find an outlet through music. His quirky, almost arcane brand of music is hard to place in any specific genre. As for his writing, I'd best describe it as factual surrealism. An old major in front of his window is a tree, Times Square is the best place to absorb, lovers are chain-smoked to achieve a sense of stability. I love weaving facts with fantasy and Mraz sits way up there with Gabriel Marquez and Michael Ondaatje.
2. CNN For reasons I can't quite finger, I have been having suffering from a case of an increasing ardor for keeping up with the world. Of the many news networks, this is serves me prefectly.
3. Anderson Cooper 360's blog I came to know of Cooper through Oprah. His Planet in Peril report cinched the deal for me. I like his zeal and his team of young, fiery reporters who drop a tear at the sight of a tiny Amazonian lizard that's been displaced by deforestation. Plus, he's quite an eye-candy (closet-homo or not).
4. Amnesty International I don't exactly have the resources to adopt a child, travel half-way across the globe to help build a water system or petition for a polotical prisoner's release, so I figured, until I can do so, I'll keep up with the literature.
5. Dakwah.info You can't live without some sort of spiritual nourishment, can you?
Come to think of it, all the links on my blog are ones I visit frequently and are equally important to me. I listed the five above because I think they're worth sharing.
Unfortunately, there's only one person I can tag and that is YOU. Happy tagging!
