It has just occurred to me that maybe I should let everyone know this blog, Stories of an Unschooling Family, has been nominated for a Homeschool Post Blog Award in the category Best Homeschool Methods Blog.
Yes, I am a bit slow. The nominations were announced on November 4th and it was only a few minutes ago that I thought of writing this post. So why am I so far behind the rest of the blogging world? Maybe I’ve been spending too much time in my fictional world recently, working on my novel. It’s also my son Thomas’ birthday today and his death day tomorrow. The week leading up to this time of year is never normal. That has probably distracted me as well.
Anyway, there is a big reason I want to tell you about the blog awards. This post gives me the opportunity to thank Chris of Campfires and Cleats for thinking of my blog and nominating it. Chris’ blog is up for an award in two categories: Best Photos Blog and Best Special Needs Blog. If you’d like to vote for Chris’ blog, I’m sure she would appreciate it.
Everyone can vote once a day until November 18th. I don’t expect to win. Quite apart from the fact there is some stiff competition out there, I feel awkward asking anyone to vote for my blog. And I can’t vote for myself. Well, I can. It’s in the rules. But I won’t. Somehow I’m not comfortable with that idea.
But I’m happy just being nominated. And it’s good to have such friends as Chris, who encourage me. I love sharing this great blogging adventure with you! I hope Chris wins an award!
