Remember this? Well, I'm working on getting you something like this (image below) for your blog's sidebar!

Heather and Laura of Sand, Sea and School (a Floridian Home Learning Blog) have agreed to help me host the belated 2006 Homeschool Blog Awards! Yes, folks, that means that you get to reminisce about all those great blogs you came to love and learn from last year; and give your favorite authors a much deserved pat on the back. It so happens that Heather and Laura are also web designers, so we are setting up a site that will be specifically for the Homeschool Blog Awards and will be taking nominations very soon!

In December of 2005, Spunky Homeschool ran the Homeschool Blog Awards over at her blog. Due to her leaving the blogosphere to tend to her family, she was unable to host the event for 2006 last December. Heather, Laura, and I aim to run the blog awards each December after these belated awards for 2006 take place.

As this is just the preliminary stage of the awards, we are asking all homeschool bloggers to get involved and suggest categories, names for the website, and any other tips you might have. We are really excited to get this project started and look forward to bringing you dates and times soon! I am guessing that if we have the website up and running in a few weeks; we may begin nominations in late March.

Awesome! I'm so glad someone is picking up the ball on this. I'll start thinking about my nominations.

Tiany said...

This is all pretty new to me, but it looks like a lot of fun! I would love to see a category for the most frugal homeschooler. A mother that has the knack of finding inexpensive or free ways to homeschool her children.

Thanks Shannon. I hope that you will spread the word.

Tiany - Welcome. Nice to 'meet' you.

Ethan - Yes, I hope I can get another one just like it for the awards this year. ;)

Teaching my own - I do believe we have a category like that (or at least we did last time). Keep checking out the updates here and I'm sure I'll be listing the categories soon.

Hi there! Ron and I were the makers of the blue book graphics. :) We recently pulled them off our server too. (I wonder if I still have them on the hard drive.... I still own the book. ;) )
We are also the admins of , so when you have some firm info, let me know and I'll pass it on to our members.

Very cool, but you are actually requiring me to think, and I am not sure I am too thrilled about that! LOL (Sorry, vicodin still hard at work on the danged wisdom teeth)

I am glad you are doing this. Thank you.

As for categories there are a bunch from 2005 which seem to be more personal in nature "best mom blog" etc. and then there is one for information.

How about a new category specifically for opinions?

A lot of HS blogs are only about personal homeschooling/family stories. Yet other bloggers stick their neck out with more general ideas and opinion pieces. That is still different than "information" type blogs.

Please consider it.

Your category suggestion sounds great. Personal Opinions Blog sound good to you? I'll add that one in.

Sponsored links are paid for by a company who wishes to improve their Google ranking, but I always check to make sure these are reputable sites and never allow any links that are questionable to be placed.

The links in my "Sweet Linkage" section are either sponsored links or personal links that I find interesting (including the links to the blogs that both of my teen children run).

I occasionally run ads on my blog in exchange for money or traded advertising, or receive products in exchange for a review or giveaway posts. I also participate in campaigns by brands that offer to pay me to write about their products after using them. Any post that is sponsored will be noted as such.
