I’d like to expand the website to embrace more of the learning areas I believe to be important. In order to easily do this and to keep things findable on the site, we’ve added this new Articles Library.
We’re adding more articles about homeschooling, home education through high school, early college, college alternatives, microbusiness, and more. We’re also including articles on “Life Management,” because those are things we teach our children as well.
* Home and Garden
* Time and Organization
* Health and Weight
* Clothing and Beauty
* Arts and Crafts
I have many articles I want to write for this section, but I know that there is a great deal of accumlated wisdom and knowlege among my readers. I’d like to offer you and your older students the opportunity to contribute articles, recipes, patterns, book reviews, or other helpful information to the new Article Library. Think of things that would be helpful to others and are in keeping with home and family values, and submit them, following the guidelines below. We’ll publish as many items as possible.
Articles can be of any length, but they must be written by the person submitting them. I ask that each article be spell-checked and proofread before submission. Please submit in.rtf or plain text format, or even pasted into an e-mail message. Please do not submit anything in Microsoft Word. Format should be web-style, with a space between paragraphs, rather than an indention. As always, there should be only one space after each sentence.
If you would like to submit a photo with your article, recipe, pattern, book review, or other submission, please save it as a .jpeg or .gif and attach it to your e-mail submission. At the end of each submission, please include a brief bio of yourself with a link to your blog or website if you have one, and if you like, a small photo. As a sample, here’s the bio I include at the end of my articles:
Janice Campbell homeschooled her four sons from preschool into college. She is the author of Transcripts Made Easy, Get a Jump Start on College, and Evaluate Writing the Easy Way, as well as the Excellence in Literature curriculum for grades 8-12. Be sure to visit her website, www.Everyday-Education.com, to get a free writing evaluation rubric and sign up for her free e-zine.
Just write something similar about yourself, and add it, so that readers can read more of your work, or at least know a bit about you. You needn’t provide . Thank you to all those who have submitted articles so far!
