The Homeschool Misfit Award Winners

And the winners are...



1. 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."



 
  2. 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?





 3. 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?





4. 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 fill out the nomination form!





5. 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.






6. 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.







7. 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.








8. 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.





9.  The Snarky Homeschooler Award- (1.) snarky adj \ˈsnär-kē\- sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner   (2.) home·school·er noun \-ˌskü-lər\ - one that homeschools 


  



10. 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 only winner I have not heard back from is The Perfect Procrastinator. Perhaps she's busy procrastinating?!  I'm collecting the prize choices and will be emailing our wonderful sponsors with the information soon.  Please show them some love by clicking through and checking out their sites!
