A Blog with Substance Award x2!

I was pleasantly surprised a few days ago to receive an award by Barb at Handbook of Nature Study blog. She is giving me an award? I thought it should be the other way around! But I gladly accept it and pass it on. Then, a couple of days after, I received the same award from Makita from Academia Celestia! Again, I felt the same way, Makita's blog is great and I think of her as a friend, even though we have never met in real life.
So now it is my turn to pass this award along.

Here are the Award Rules, if you find yourself the recipient of this award. I hope you will pass it along!

•Thank the blogger who awarded it to you.

•Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using ten (10) words.

•Pass it on to 10 other blogs which you feel have real substance.

My philosophy, motivation, and experience on blogging....

Blogging is good for my creativity and hopefully is helpful. 

Here are my 10 choices, in no particular order:

Kris from At Home Science  keeps an excellent blog for anything related to science, books, websites, reviews and more. I have learned a lot by visiting this blog.

Leslie at Home-Grown Love is a homeschool mom of 3 who participates regularly in my Book Sharing Monday. She hosts the 100 books a month challenge!

Our Pace is a regular participant of Book Sharing Monday and a real life homeschool friend. I really enjoy reading her posts, even when we have matching photos sometimes!

LegoQuest Kids is an awesome site for homeschoolers/unschoolers to participate in weekly lego challenges. If your kids like building with legos, make sure to check it out!

Rockhound Place is another great homeschooling blog that participates in Book Sharing Monday too! I like reading her posts, it feels like chatting with another homeschool mom.

Carol at You're Not Lost, You're Here is real life friend and actually got me started in the world of blogging (thanks Carol!). Check out her "Eating Our Way Around the World" posts!

Freeplaylife is a new-to-me blog, but it looks excellent so far. I am a visual person and love photography and this blog is a great combination of great photos with interesting posts. 

School for Us is a pleasure to read. I like reading her posts about homeschooling and all their travels. Great pictures too!

Jimmie's Collage  is, I think, well known with homeschool moms, but I have to pass the reward to her as well because she truly deserves it. She has given me many ideas over the years. Thank you Jimmie!

Practical Pages is like a treasure chest for homeschool moms. A ton of free resources, printable and ideas in various subjects.  

My 10 picks for the Blog with Substance reward. It took me almost a week to get this post together! There are so many wonderful blogs out there kept by awesome homeschool moms, it made it very difficult to choose. You can see more blogs in my links on the left side of this blog, under homeschooling and unschooling families.

I hope you will visit these blogs and enjoy them!

    I saw this award on Practical Pages, a blog that indeed deserves this award. I know Jimmie's blog (who doesn't ;-), the rest is new to me. I will have a look at all of them....awards are great tools to help to explore the blog world.

  9. Alex, You're so sweet! Thanks so much for your kind words.
