a blog carnival of homeschooling

I had never heard of a blog carnival until I stumbled across the carnival of homeschooling at the Thinkingmother. Each week’s carnival is “hosted” by a different person and contains links submitted by many different people writing about homeschooling. It sounded interesting so I thought I would participate. You can read this week’s carnival of homeschooling at Beverly Hernandez’s homeschooling site. For more information and how you can participate, click here.

Please note that even though I am linking to the blog carnival, I may not agree with all the content you may find there.

    Hello from The Thinking Mother!
    If you like the Carnival idea, I don’t know if you know there are hundreds of different Carnivals on different topics. There are a few different homeschooling blog carnivals: an unschooling one, and one for Catholics only, for example. I am not aware of a Christian-only Carnival for homeschoolers.

    There are Carnivals for children’s literature, kid comedy (funny things kids say), parenting, and more. You can find many (but not all) Carnivals listed at http://www.blogcarnival.com

    I consider the Carnival of Homeschooling to be the same as reading a homeschooling magazine but it is published weekly, is on the Internet not on paper, and is free.

    Regarding agreeing with content it is like reading a newspaper or magazine, you may not agree with everything that everyone says. You may also like something I say one week but not what I say in the next Carnival.

    I love the Carnivals but my time is limited. I could spent all day, every day reading blogs, websites and Carnivals if I wanted, that is how much information is available. The Internet is an amazing source of free information and opinions, it just takes time sometimes to weed through it all to find something truly useful or applicable my life.

    Nice meeting you! Have a nice day.

    Thanks for all the information, Christine. The kids literature carnival sounds like I might find it beneficial. I wasn’t thinking of anyone in particular (especially you!) when I made my little disclaimer about linking to the blog carnival. I hadn’t read anything at the blog carnival yet, and I just wanted to let my friends and family know that I didn’t necessarily endorse all the content they may find there.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and hope to see you again.
