The Homeschool Post

Imagine my surprise when I discovered I’ve been nominated for… Best Variety Blog over at the Homeschool Blog Awards!!!  After reading Angela’s astonishment at being nominated for Best Nitty Gritty Blog (perfect nomination for her!) I wandered over and received my own pleasant surprise.

HSBA define a Best Variety Blogger as:
“This blogger is one that could fit in any of these categories…but they just can’t be pinned down in ONE. This type of bloggers is always moving on from one thing to the next…and always keeping you interested in coming back for more!”


Oh wow, always keeping you interested in coming back for more, I sure hope so.  I do know I have some delightful, loyal readers and commentators, and I thank you for being you.  A big thank you to the lovely person/s who nominated me, I am honoured and humbled.

There is a great roll up of bloggers for the Awards, this year, some familiar and some new ones to discover, in 20 different categories! A shout out to those I know, though I’m sure the others are just as worthy, a great way to spread the blog love.

As I look over the list I’m sharing with you, I realised I have forged real (albeit online) and precious friendships with most. Women whom I otherwise would never have ‘met’, whose friendships have enriched my life.
