Homeschool Blog Awards ~ Nominations Closed

Nominations for Alasandra's Homeschool Blog Awards are now closed. Since Mother Crone's Homeschool is now offline, I am going to drop it from the adult blogs. I am really disappointed that Angela choose to discontinue her blog as it was one of my favourites and I thought it contained a lot of wonderful material. I will start working on getting the polls up, I hope to be finished by November 1st.

    1. Thanks, Alesandra. I am honored to be nominated! I came by to read another post and found this. How do I nominate some of my fave's?

    2. Just leave the name(s) of the blog(s), what category it/they fit in and a link to it here in the comments

      Example I nominate ________ for Adult Blog (link)

      I nominate ________ for Group Blog (link)

      you get the idea.

    3. Can I nominate a teen group blog? It's Growing in Grace.

    4. Yes, you may nominate a teen group blog.

    5. I'd like to nominate Colleen's adult unschooling blog, The New Unschooler. I think I nominated her last year when she was VERY new but if she didn't win then she's eligible again, right? :)
      Also, I honestly see provocative things at Lynn's that I just don't find anywhere else, a very personal blog with its own decidedly not boring voice, so please include Bore Me to Tears too, in the adult blog category?

      p.s. Thanks for having Snook in the mix again; Nance and I are glad you've taken this on and so pleased to participate.

    6. Hi JJ,

      Thanks for nominating me. I'm laughing because you're the second person this month to use the word "provocatory" to describe my blog :D ...So, does this mean that I should lay off the strawberry daiquiris while blogging??

      Thanks also to Alasandra :)

      Lynn @ boremetotears

    7. Yippee! Thanks JJ and Alasandra. I'm already working on my campaign slogan. Oh wait, that's for elections not blog awards...
