Unbeknownst to me, while I was preoccupied with Summer holidays, without a computer for nearly two months and absorbed with my mothers health problems, a friend of mine from Unplug Your Kids has presented me with the Blogging Community Involvement Award aka the “Schmooze Award”! I feel honored indeed and most humbly accept.
I believe this award originated from Mike at Ordinary Folk, and he defines the power of schmooze as the following:
Schmoozing as defined by Dictionary.com is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much…”
Ad a new blogger to the blogosphere, I am charmed that someone should sit up and take notice of what I write here. My goal is to encourage and inspire others in the homeschool community by sharing little bits of my life and daily adventures with my kids as we live out our homeschool journey. So thanks again to my fellow schmoozer friend, Mom Unplugged.
I must mention a couple of other fellow bloggers that I have schmoozed with in the blogosphere and whos blogs I find entertaining and encouraging. So without further ado, I wish to bestow the “Schmooze Award” to:
Tricia from Homeschooling on the Hilltop
DeeDee from It Coulda’ Been Worse
and Kathleen from Coffee Mom
If you’ve already received this award, consider your self a ‘power schmoozer!’. Feel free to pass this award on to other special schmoozers you have met in the blogosphere!
