Blogs (Or, straight from the horse's...erm...homeschoolers' mouths):
Homeschoolers LOVE to talk about the curriculum they use. See what they're saying -- and writing -- about their curricula. Most homeschoolers even list the curricula that they use on their blog's homepage. If you are not already blogging, get going. But, even if you're not ready to take the leap into blogging, you can at least take advantage of what OTHERS are saying on THEIR blogs.
- Search the blogosphere with Google Blogsearch
- Get on the blogs that homeschoolers are using: Homeschoolblogger, Blogger (Blogspot), and Wordpress.
- Follow these blogs, aggregate their feeds, comment on posts, and send private messages.
- While you're at it, get connected to other people (including homeschoolers and other educators) via the social networking sites: Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
