Wow! Did you even know there were that many different types of homeschool blogs? Of course, it seems like they are missing a few significant categories. How about these:

1) Blogger most likely to homeschool in her pajamas
2) Messiest school room blog
3) Most prolific blogger – who needs sleep when you can blog?
4) The Homeschool blogger you love to hate
5) Best Homeschool Worrier Blog – will my kids succeed, are we doing enough school, will they get into college?
6) Best “My Kids are Cuter than Your Kids” Homeschool Blog

Best Airport Homeschooling Blogger

A little blogging here, a lttle blogging there. Airport blogging with wi-fi is the best.

I figure I easily qualify for the Messiest AND the Sleepiest Blogger Awards. Did I mention there are prizes this year? Prizes. And fame. Oh, the glory of it all.

You’ll notice there isn’t a homeschooling category in the whole 2007 Weblog Awards. Education, yes, but not homeschooling specifically. I bet they don’t even offer prizes. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

No hanging chads in these elections, I’m sure. :)

  1. Sooner or later, if they add enough award categories, there will be enough for everyone to win. How ’bout these, for a few more potential Homeschooling Blog groupings:

    • Late Night Blogger — blog most consistently posted after 1 am local time
    • Snap-Happy Blogger — blog that really subscribes to the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words … and serves up a novel’s worth, every day.
    • Coffee Blogger — blog that manages to weave a reference to coffee into almost every posting

    I may be too late for this year, but I’m sure they’ll be wanting to work these into next year’s award categories.

  2. Woohoo! And some more:

    Most Confusing and Mind-Boggling Blog – the blog that leaves its readers most befuddled and bemused.

    Longest Blog – the blog with the longest posts.

    Most Pointless Blog – the blog which consists of meaningless babble.

    Blog of the Nerd – self-evident.

    Maybe I won’t qualify for the awards, but I can rest assured that if only people knew, I would win the Most Opinionated Person’s Blog Award.
