Hi Sprittibee,

I had my nominations all typed out and the form on the website wouldn't accept them: "No URLs?" I thought we had to include them...?

What do I do now?

Mama Squirrel:

We've been having trouble with the Homeschool Blog Awards website handling nominations that include the text: "http://"

SO, please exclude it from your nominations.

TYPE the URL as follows:

Thanks newt. Your site is neat.

What about blogs that started at one blogging site but have recently moved to another? I know a bunch of those.

Mama Squirrel said...

OK--I'll do it that way. Can you let people know that on the website, because when we're cutting and pasting URLS we get the whole thing.

We added a blurb about it! Thanks :)

Just wanted to say I love your "Dinosaur in hiding" photo - fantastic!

SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN RESPONSES - I've been burried in nominations and life's little distractions lately...

Karen - I guess it depends on if the blogger was an established blog somewhere else or they are switching themes. Such as... if they were NOT homeschoolers and then created a NEW homeschool blog - that wouldn't count. But, if they were a homeschooling blog previously and just moved addresses, I guess it would. Then again, if they changed themes all-together and began blogging in a new style or on a new topic? I guess the call is up to you. But, if you want to nominate them, please do include both links with an explanation. :)

Thanks Mamasquirrel. We did it!

Heather - :)

Shelly - Thank you for the kind comment. :) I had no idea when I took the photo that the dino was there. It jumped out at me once I got the photos home and uploaded them to my computer! I just thought the angle looked pretty. Little did I know that I discovered a woody dinosaur, peeking over the rocks.
