Blogging for Homeschooled Kids....

If your son or daughter loves to read blogs, have him or her check out the 28th Homeschool Kids Blog Carnival! And if he or she is a blogger, there is a form to fill out for the next Carnival.  If you're like me, you might feel a little hesitant letting your child set up a blog. But if you set up some ground rules at the beginning and stay apprised, it can be a rewarding endeavor. All four of my girls have blogs, although my oldest (almost 12) is the only one that consistently posts. The others are hit or miss. However, having the blog enables them to express themselves in a different way and to get feedback (via comments) from friends and other homeschoolers at those times when they do feel like posting. And as they get older, I feel that it will be something they may do more often.

Cheers!

  1. Thanks for the link. My daughter is always complaining that she can't find any young people blogs to follow.
