Good Stuff for Homeschoolers

I try to catch up on all my Google reader subscriptions every few days. Sometimes I get so far behind that I delete nearly everything without reading, and I often feel momentarily distressed about that. (I never delete my real-life friends' posts, by the way, so pipe down.) I don't really mind deleting crafting or DIY-type blogs, but most of my subscriptions are homeschool-related. What if I miss something? These are a few of the ones that I do read regularly, although often I don't get to spend as much time on each post as I'd like:

* The Carnival of Homeschooling. This week it is hosted by Melanie at Raising Real Men.
* The Weekly Wrap-Up at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. I like reading what other homeschoolers do on a weekly basis.
* Simple Homeschool. And not just because I'm a contributor. The articles there are smart, savvy, and relevant.
* The Homeschool Classroom. Ditto, and lots of hands-on, put-in-practice type ideas.
* The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I know, I should be reading her homeschooling posts. But really it's her recipes that are a tremendous help to my life.

Speaking of helps, our support group had a roundtable discussion a few days ago, focusing mainly on Sonlight curriculum. But a couple of links came up that I was surprised to hear that only a couple other people knew about. These have been staples for me throughout my homeschooling career, and I figured everyone knew about them. So in case you haven't:
* Paula's Archives of Homeschooling Advice. Just everything is here.
* Donna Young's Homeschool Printables and Resources. Everything else is here.

What are your "must read" homeschooling blogs?


  1. OMG.I feel the same way.I try to check up on the Blogger Dashboard at least twice a day to see who has updated.I hate missing anything that has to do with Homeschooling.I have a BIG problem with finding more and following them so then I have even more blogs to follow.

  2. Wow - THANK YOU! This is our first year homeschooling and sometimes I don't know where to start when it comes to finding helpful resources. Thank you again!

  3. Thanks for the article. Very interesting.
