Homeschool Websites and Blogs we recommend:
- HomeschoolRealm.com (Tina’s homeschool blog)
- Balancing Everything: an eclectic homeschooling family (some occasional religious content, as the family is Mormon.)
- A Magical Childhood: an unschooling family. Not aware of their religious preference, as I don’t recall ever noticing her mention it.
- Melissa Wiley: author of children’s books that also blogs about homeschooling…she alternates between unschooling and structured learning (aka “tidal schooling”). They are a Catholic homeschool family, though I’ve never noticed any religious content on her blog
- Simple Homeschool: a blog site with multiple authors. More like an online magazine.
- Homeschool.com’s podcasts.
- Secular Homeschool has great reviews, blog posts and forums.
