Please Support Our Catholic Bloggers in the 2013 Homeschool Post Blog Awards ( Everyday Until Nov 18! )

Well, we've been crossing off the days in November 
and you know what THAT means.
 In addition to being graced with 
the seasonal crimsons, magentas and  burnt oranges, 
 the traditional and the exciting new Thanksgiving dishes we eagerly prepare 
and the advent customs we ready in anticipation of  once again celebrating,
it's award season in many arenas!
How can it be that we've come so close to saying "Goodbye" to 2013?
You've no doubt been asked to vote (or you've done the asking, as I have!)
in a handful of 2013 blogging award venues.
And yup, that's what this is all about.
But this is a  unique request...:
Catholic bloggers are rocking one specific awards platform, 
Let's  support them all 
and show our Catholic pride 
by voting in the many areas in which they are nominated.

Of the many categories featured  at the Homeschool Post Blog awards
Catholics represent: 
13 blogs
17 nominations
13 categories

Friends, let's make this a Catholic sweep! 
Let's  keep our  faith front and center 
by supporting Catholic voices, opinions,  projects, photos,
 curriculum  designs, homemaking styles,
crafts, plans, encouragement,
traditions,  liturgical season activities
homeschool methodologies, resources and more 
visible and prominent.
 All of the bloggers are winners, simply by
virtue of being courageous enough to speak the 
 unpopular Truth in our current culture.
That's a fact.
And because of that, nomination in itself is huge.
Let's make even more of a statement and vote Catholic in

Now, for the details:
1. You can vote in   each category,  once per day, per device until November 18!
2. Please click to shade the dot to the left of the blog name. Then scroll down the page to click "vote."
3. Please spread the word by tweeting, pinning, sharing in some form, this post or the
