2006bobfinalist
Well, that was a nice surprise! Just now I was checking out referrers in my site meter and discovered that Bonny Glen has been nominated for a Blogs of Beauty award! I’m a finalist in the "Best Homeschooling Blog" category along with the most excellent Spunky  Homeschool and the lovely Higher Up and Further In (which latter I enthused about recently after noticing that extremely cool picture-study Flickr badge in the sidebar). (Speaking of which—this month she has a Mary Cassatt badge. Scroll down the page to the "This Month’s Artist" section. Beautiful.)

The fourth finalist in this category is a blog I hadn’t encountered before: Enjoy the Journey. I have just spent most of my early-morning blog-writing time on a thoroughly enjoyable exploration of Lindsey’s site. Great essay on motherhood near the top of the page.

Voting instructions can be found at A Gracious Home. There are many other fine blogs in the various categories. If you had any free time left you can kiss it goodbye now.

Many thanks to the person who nominated me, whoever you are!

  1. Congratulations, Lissa! I just discovered I was nominated for craft and projects! How exciting! 🙂

  2. Congrats Melissa

    I enjoy these contests because I find out about so many new blogs. I hadn’t read Higher Up and Farther In either. I have been reading Just Enjoy the Journey. Lindsey is a lot of fun.

    I think we should just pool the votes and declare a group winner!

  3. Congratulations, Melissa. I enjoy reading you blog quite often. Thanks you sharing your time so freely.

    warmly,
