Announcing The Homeschool Misfit Awards!

It wasn't too long after I first started blogging a couple of years ago when I heard the buzz about the Annual Homeschool Blog Awards for the first time.  Having only blogged for a few weeks, if that, at that point, any nomination of the sorts was far into the future.  Since then, two more years have gone by and I still don't feel any closer to any award category.  There are too many bloggers out there, many far, far better than my humble blog.

Apparently, I'm not alone in my feelings of inadequacy when those annual blog awards come each year.  Several of my Crewmates from the TOS Crew were discussing how there just isn't a category that fits some of us.  Instead, we started to joke around about suitable categories, those for the misfit variety of bloggers. You know, those bloggers that neglect a blog for weeks (The Harried Homeschooler Award), who enthusiastically announce an upcoming post but never get around to it (The Not Coming Soon Award), or perhaps who exhibit major signs of ADHD with posts that start on one topic and end on something entirely different ( The "Squirrel" Award).  Now you're talking!  I could actually fit in categories like this.  And if I don't, there is the always the The Misfit Among Misfits Award for those that still can't find a category that fits them.

Before you know it, Lori over at Hearthside Homeschooling Reviews  made The Homeschool Misfit Awards a reality! How incredibly fun! Head on over and take a peek at the categories.  Perhaps there is one that fits you (or a friend that doesn't mind a little fun at her expense). As for me, I can see myself in several.  I just haven't decided yet where I'm the biggest misfit.  In this case, there are too many choices!

You made my day with this! I was just looking at those "other" awards at HSBA and thinking the same thing. Great, but so not me in any way. The misfit awards made me laugh! So true! We can't all be Pioneer Woman! ;0)

I meant to add that I think your blog is great! ;0)

Aww, thanks, Sara. (*blush*)

Yes, a Pioneer Woman I am not! I think Lori did such an awesome job on the Misfit Awards. I think many more homeschoolers can relate more to them.
