Funny how things change so quickly these days.
It seems that almost everyone has a blog now, for some reason or another. Look around you.
It must be the thing to do!
If you search Google, you will find over 897,000,000 pages of information on blogs compared to a topic like homeschooling that only has 9,860,000.
Only 9.8 million! That is still a lot!
Millions of People Blog
As I am sure you know, you will find blog posts about almost any subject imagineable, written by people from all walks of life – young and old.
Some blogs provide valuable information for readers, written from the blogger’s personal perspective or experience.
Businesses have blogs, professionals have blogs, authors have blogs, big name entrepreneurs have blogs... and the rest of us regular folk? We have blogs too!
Blogs give a voice to majority of us who will never be heard in mainstream media. Like most blogs, homeschool blogs offer a place to easily share your opinions and life with others.
Homeschool blogs can provide you some additional support and encouragement as you educate your children at home.
Through homeschooling blogs you can read about other families who school at home, receive encouragement, and find new ways to overcome difficulties, and meet new friends.
Homeschool families come in many shapes and sizes. Many homeschool bloggers blog about things totally unrelated to homeschooling! Most blog about topics they're passionate about.
Home educators blog for many reasons. Perhaps you blog yourself. It’s fun, isn’t it?
Below are some typical reasons for blogging:
Perhaps you blog out of pure enjoyment. Some home educators want to keep an online journal of their family’s activities for friends and families to see.
Homeschool blogs provide a way for you to share your homeschool experience with others who show interest in your child’s education or want to keep up to date with your family’s daily happenings.
Your homeschool blog may be your vehicle to let your voice and opinions be heard by all. Perhaps you enjoy broadcasting your insight, wisdom or view about a particular subject or current events affecting our world.
A blog is a great way to communicate with your homeschool group. Many groups have blogs so that the leader can easily share information with the rest of the group.
Staying in touch with friends and meeting new homeschooling families can be done easily through a blog. Many times a person, who has the same interests as you, finds your blog and quickly becomes an online friend.
Staying at home full time as a parent and home educator sometimes causes us to feel disconnected. Homeschool blogs provide an easy way to meet others just like ourselves, and provide connection to others.
Perhaps yours is among the many blogs that earns some additional money for your family. Generating income from blogging is a fun and easy - a great way to work and homeschool your children.
A blog provides a business an easy way to send out announcements and build a relationship with potential and current customers.
Perhaps your blog helps you to keep in touch with your customer base and build relationships with those who use your products.
Share Your Thoughts!
I like to get to know people. I like to know why they do things – what makes them tick. If you know me, you know I enjoy asking questions. Not too many to be a pain in the you-know-what, but enough to get to know more than just a name.
So assuming you blog, why do you?
I created a poll just for fun. I would love to get to know you. Please share your main reason for blogging!
