Long before I had Homeschool Realm, I had another really successful site called Mommy Chats. (Back in the day of chats.) It doesn’t exist anymore…you can only find it on archive.org nowadays…

I had the site for many years, and hosted casual chatting as well as lots of topical chats…and from Oct 2004 to July 2007 I partnered with Peggy O’Mara and Mothering Magazine (then editor of the then print magazine…it’s no longer Peggy and no longer print…but it was for decades…and it does still exist as a website community and digital format, it looks like…) to host their natural parenting chats. They brought me the guests and I hosted their weekly topical chats. It was a lot of fun and I got to meet a lot of really neat people and learn some really interesting stuff.

Recently it occurred to me that I could dig up the homeschool related chats and post them here on this website because there was some really great stuff learned from those chats from long ago!

So….here’s a list of the people whose chats I will be sharing with you:

I just have to get the formatting to cooperate and I’ll start posting them soon!!

A new idea I have!

I share all kinds of great info and links on my Homeschool Realm Facebook Page , and I keep thinking that I should be sharing that info here on my site! Especially since it’s much easier to search a website then a Facebook page. But it’s SOOOO much easier to share on Facebook…so I came up with an idea that I think might work. I’m going to try it out and see how it goes.

The idea is to gather all the links and info that I posted on Facebook, and post them here in one post, called “This week on Facebook.”

And since I’ve got a LOT of great info already posted on Facebook, I’m going to see about going back back back on Facebook and gathering all those links here somehow, as time allows.

But in the meantime…please check out my Facebook page for lots of great info!

Have you checked out my Facebook Page?

I have been posting fascinating things I find (homeschool related) over on my Facebook Page for some time now…pretty regularly. So if you’ve not checked that out yet, you should!

It’s just occurred to me also that there’s a LOT of great resources over there that should also be here on this blog. So I’m trying to figure out the best way to gather all that info and post it here. And trying to find a new way to post…here first, then it posts automatically over there would be ideal. But it’s a habit hard to create! :). Well we’ll see how things evolve.

How cool is this? http://www.secularhomeschool.com/content/1136-blog-reprint-i-am-secular-homeschooler/

They liked my article and asked for permission to reprint it on SecularHomeschool.com! What an honor!

And since I’ve added HomeschoolRealm.com to their blogroll, now, I realize I need to get my butt in gear to add more content here more regularly! I’m inspired!

I’m going to start with working on getting all the fabulous links that I post on the Homeschool Realm Facebook page over here on this site. I should have been doing this all along! If you’re not yet following that FB page, I highly recommend it, since it’s the first place I go when I have great content to share! Which is pretty regularly. That will hopefully change soon so that stuff will post here first and then there, but for now, there’s a LOT of great info over there! Keep going back in the FB posts, it goes on for years! 🙂

Anyway…for all my new readers that found me via SecularHomeschool.com, WELCOME!!

New links page

Just a heads up that I have [intlink id=”1585″ type=”page”]a new links page[/intlink].  I was just thinking the other day that I am sharing all sorts of valuable info on Facebook/Twitter and not logging it. So I created a new links page to have a place to record valuable links.

I haven’t yet had a chance to go back into Facebook/Twitter to compile all these links, so stay tuned on the link above as that list will grow as I have time to work on it.
