The Homeschool Misfit Awards- It's Voting Time!


I love the response and participation in The Homeschool Misfit Blog Awards!  There is a wonderful mix of homeschoolers here, and what we all have in common is the realization that we're not superhero homeschoolers.  We're the everyday folk who are doing their best to provide a homemade, individualized education for our families but don't always feel like we fit into the stereotypical homeschool image. We're proud to call ourselves The Homeschool Misfits!

At the close of this contest, everyone will receive a handy dandy button for your blogs to identify yourself as a Misfit.  The winners of each category will have one personalized with their category. A "Vote for Me!" button is available at the bottom of this post.  If you're a nominee, feel free to post it prominently on your own site!

I'm not sure how to create a super duper poll style voting form, and it took a lot longer than I thought it would to list all of these great blogs, so the voting form is in the same style as the nomination form.  Simply visit the blogs listed, copy the URL of the one you'd like to vote for, and paste it under the correct category on the form. One vote per person, per category please!

Now have fun visiting these blogs and making new bloggy friends!  And be sure to vote by clicking HERE.  Voting will close on November 30th.

The Wannabe Award 
This is for the homeschool parent who wants to be this or that (Classical, Structured, Relaxed, Unschooler, Free Spirit, Sane) but frequently falls short and is not afraid to admit it.  "Here's where I want to be, here's where I am, and I'm going to keep on striving."


The "Squirrel" Award
 "Wait, weren't we supposed to be studying Abraham Lincoln?  How'd we end up talking about the chemical properties of Styrofoam?"  This is the homeschool blogger who begins her posts on one topic and then takes off in several different directions.  ADHD anyone?


The Harried Homeschooler Award "Good thing I don't neglect my kids like I do my blog."  or "Who are all these kids and why are they wanting my attention when I'm trying to blog?".  This is the blogger who has every intention of blogging regularly, but life just gets in the way sometime.  Her family expects regular meals.  What's up with that?



The Perfect Procrastinator Award 
"I really should write that thought provoking piece about world hunger/child discipline/spiritual growth/etc. but I'd rather play on Facebook.  Here's a cute puppy photo instead."  Some bloggers have turned procrastination into an art form.  Quit procrastinating and vote!


The Blabber Blog Award
 "MOM, you put THAT photo/story on your blog?" This one's for the blogger who isn't afraid to embarrass her family for the sake of blog fodder.


Too Busy Blogging Award
The opposite of The Harried Homeschooler, this blogger posts at least once a day, if not more.  It's an addiction. Like coffee, only not as tasty.
The Meme Forgotten Award
For those who begin a meme, mentally commit to following through weekly, and then promptly forget or manage it sporadically at best. 


The Not Coming Soon Award
Ever write a post informing your readers of all the great upcoming posts you have in mind?  Did these posts actually get written? This is the award for the blogger hanging their head sheepishly as they read this description.


The Misfit Among Misfits Award 
Have you read through the Homeschool Blog Awards and not found a category that fits you, only to come to the Misfit awards and realize you still don't belong?  You may just be unique, qualifying you as the Misfit among Misfits!


The Queen (or King) of Misfits Award 
This is the blogger who can fit in almost every misfit category listed and will proudly be proclaimed as misfit royalty!


The Snarky Homeschooler Award
If you or your friend enjoys the snark and sarcasm, this is the award for you.
