Consent Of The Governed Gets Tapped For Another Award

Elisheva over at Ragamuffin Studies has chosen COTG as one of the blogs she believes is A Blogger For Positive Global Change Award!
Thanks Elisheva! This is much appreciated!

The meme is from Climate of Our Future, whose mission statement states:
"There are a wide range of bloggers on the Web who, like Atlas from mythology, have taken the weight of the world upon their shoulders and are trying to build awareness among their readership in order to create a more sustainable and enlightened future.

Our particular mission is no small task — changing the world we live in for the better — but we take great comfort in the fact that we’re not struggling alone to achieve this."
Elisheva said this about COTG:
Consent of the Governed : Homeschool mom turned activist and researcher, Judy provides a great deal of varied information about the legal issues involving homeschooling, as well as commentary on the educational establishment and government that keeps me thinking. She is also a researcher for National Home Education Legal Defense. Based in Connecticut, this is a non-sectarian alternative for those of us who want to pool our resources to preserve our freedom to educate our children ourselves.
And here are the rules for the Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award:
1. When you get tagged, write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.

2. In your post, make sure you link back to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

3. Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you’re tagging, so they know they’re now part of the meme.

4. Optional: Proudly display the “Bloggers For Positive Global Change” award badge with a link to the post that you write up.

So here are my 5 choices:
- Susan over at Corn and Oil for her commentary and superb reporting of issues related to mental health screening and parenting.

- Izzy over at Homeschool Revolution who consistently reports about the successes of homeschooling and freedom to educate. She always inspires me.

- The Cates Family at Why Homeschool who have done much to add to the discussion about history, science, homeschooling and education reform.

- Tamara over at Stylus Woman who herself lives a life devoted to positive global change.

- Dana at Principled Discovery because her commentaries on freedom and liberty are always worth reading. Freedom and Liberty are always positive ideals for our global community.

I wanted to pick Sandy at Junk Food Science but she was already tagged by Elisheva. Sandy consistently exposes: "The truth about food, fat and health. Learn the science that mainstream media doesn't report and how to critically think about the junk they do that's not fit to swallow. Plus some food for thought."

Why thank you. And I nominate you for the most gracious accepter of blog awards. Maybe I'll accept all my awards at once tomorrow.
