Ha. This is my Memo Monday week, so I get to announce the WINNERS! of course, I thought I was going to do it on Monday, so there you go…
the moment you have
all been waiting for:
The Homeschool Blog Awards Winners!
We interrupt this program to make some important announcements:
First of all, I read a comment by one of the “non-top winners” who called herself a loser. I resent that remark. Even though she made it herself. I will tell you, there are SO many good blogs out there. We want to bring you the top ones, but sometimes, the most obscure blogs are so very good and personal too! So, just know that you are ALL WINNERS in our books here at The Homeschool Post.
Second of all, in light of concerns of the hanging chads and the ominous clouds of anyone being labeled “cheaters”, let us at The HSBA Post just say that we in no way believe that any of the bloggers who were nominees in any of the categories had anything to do with the instances of multiple votes. There are no dark clouds looming over anyone. No hard feelings. Everyone is a winner, and we encourage you to check out all of the blogs that were nominated!
Ok, back to our regularly, two-day-late scheduled post:

Speaking of great blogs, be sure to check out the blogs by the HSBA Authors. Each author on this site has her own blog and withdraws herself from being in the Awards to be able to operate the polls to present an awards that will be fun and fair for all to enjoy! You will find the Author blogs linked in their About Pages in the sidebar. Be sure you let them each know how much you appreciate all the time and hard work they not only put into the Awards, but the regular weekly posts they publish too!
Have a great week!! Eats lots of turkey and give the LORD lots of thanks! Not necessarily in that order…
