Home School Blog Awards

It’s that time of year again, when the hardworking, tireless volunteers at the Homeschool Blog Awards set themselves up for numerous complaints about how they are going about this all wrong.;-D

They have accepted and tallied the nominees for the categories, checked to make sure the blogs nominated meet the requirements, (like being family friendly), and now you can vote on the winners.

It may be obligatory and cliched  to say all of us are winners, and it’s an honor just to be nominated, but that doesn’t make it any less true.

There are 20 categories and over a thousand nominees.

Although we have done our part to be part of the community of complainers to our thankless volunteers (because we hate not to fit in with the crowd) and asked them change it to the name our users know us best by, our regular blog is listed as Heartkeeper Common Room in the following categories:

Best Homeschool Variety
Best Current Events and Opinions
Best Family or Group Blog

Which is pretty nifty and puts a smile on my face.  Yes, since I am sure I just heard you ask, you can vote for us in all three categories. We just can’t win in all three categories.  In the event that a blogger wins in more than one category, the hardworking moms will award the prizes (because there are prizes) to a runner up.  There’s probably a way they determine which of the surplus categories goes to a runner-up, and they probably even explained it quite clearly somewhere on their page which I was too distracted (did I mention, THREE categories?),  but I am not going to worry my uncombed head about it.

One vote per person in the household per category, up to five. So conceivably, I could vote for the Cherub by proxy. I am sure she likes me best, after all, and if she doesn’t, I can just promise her cookies and then she will.

Nevermind.  The point I wanted to make is that quite often that’s not how the cookies work, and we’ve never been able to have all the qualifying people in our household vote anyway. Cookies crumble and all that.

Anyhoo, that’s a lot of categories, and you don’t have a lot of time.

Voting ends at midnight on November 18th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time (PST)

There’s a lot of great blogs there, and quite a few I’ve never read, so I’ll see you over there.=)

  Yes, yes, it can be said that it’s ‘just a popularity contest,’ and, in fact, it usually is said and I am often left scratching my head and thinking “yes?  And a couch is just a couch.  What else can it be but a popularity contest?”

So we’re shallow like that.

So do vote for us, there’s a dear.=)
