Homeschool Blog Awards - Voting Begins
I have been completely overwhelmed to have been nominated in two categories for the Homeschool Blog Awards. It is interesting to me that I started out blogging as a homeschooler, and while that is a part of what I blog about, it is not who I am. I am a mom who keeps my children home for school, but it is not all of me. I like to write, scrapbook, tell jokes, read, discuss issues related to politics, home-making, spiritual life, etc. There are many facets of this blogger - which means I never expected to be nominated for "homeschool" blog awards - as so few of my posts are about homeschooling, per se, and yet all of them are in that they are about our lives, which I believe is where we are learning all the time, to coin a John Holt phrase. It is interesting how this has changed - as it used to be one of the main ways I identified myself, and now it seems I hardly mention it until I get to know somebody or they ask the question, "Where do your kids go to school?" It is one of a million streaming adjectives that describe who I am. I know this is true of all homeschool moms - but I have noticed that some blogs tend to focus more on this aspect. Those are the blogs I thought the HSB awards were about. However, what I did not anticipate were the following categories for which I was nominated: Best Cyber-Buddy Blogger and Best Variety, which are both homeschooling and so much more. I think they suit what goes on here in my little corner of the blogosphere. If you would like to vote for me, I've made the categories linkable - so you can click right over there and place your vote. I'm listed as "So Much to Say, So Little Time". Be sure and check out the other outstanding blogs linked there as well!
