Subversive Blogger Award

Subversive Blogger def.: 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.

Thanks to Jeremy for the vote of confidence. Like Jeremy, I’m been in a blogging slump - uninspired, in his words “a dry ink well”. I haven’t felt very subversive or inspiring, I feel like a broken record and incredibly apathetic about all things that used to drive me with passion. I will receive this little nomination as a spark to carry on.

In like fashion, I nominate the following (if you have already been nominated, just take it as a double honor)
Kathy Escobar
Rose Madrid-Swetman
Julie Clawson
Jamie Arpin-Ricci

The rules of participation are pretty straightforward:
1. If you are tagged, write a post with links to five subversive blogs.
2. Link back to JakeBouma.com so people can easily find the origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the “Subversive Blogger Award” somewhere on your blog (images below) with a link to the post that you wrote.

    I hear you that you’re feeling uninspired. However, I wish I could be as uninspired as you! I’m sure in time the Spirit will move through you. God bless!
