Who we are

Home Ed Voices is an online community of and for parent-educators who believe we’re better when we lean on and learn from each other.  Each week we publish at least one or two articles on any aspect of home education.  We feel that as a community we all benefit from hearing diverse voices and sharing our hard-earned wisdom.

What we’re looking for

If you can…

  • Share a personal anecdote that connects you with the reader
  • Derive a lesson learnt, a new perspective or a new idea for others to try in their own lives
  • And include links to resources parent-educators may find useful for a greater understanding or can utilize to put your idea into practice or expand upon it

…then we want to hear from you.

Our guidelines

A good blog post is…

  • well-organized
  • skimmable – use sub headings and short paragraphs
  • use lists and bullets
  • has images and/or quotes
  • original and hasn’t been used anywhere else before
  • includes a Call to Action
  • is 1,500-3,000 words

…but we can help flesh out a good set of bones.
