Getting my act together as an educational blogger – call for carnival posts.

I really really loved running the not back to school carnival. And I get the impression that it was pretty popular with a lot of home ed and other bloggers. So, I wondered if we could make an educational carnival a regular thing?

Who is up for that?

I was thinking maybe 4th Thursday of the month, which would be 26th September, so if people are up for it and got posts to me by Monday 23rd, I could have it live then. I’d be open for any home ed related posts, but could suggest a theme each month so there would be two sections – themed posts and otherwise. For this month I was thinking maybe favourite resources?

That could be online, offline, books, TV programs, DVDs, games, whatever floats your boat really. And I’m also thinking that this isn’t about school bashing, so if anyone who does use school, but also likes their educational resources would like to join in, I’d be quite happy for that to happen, I hope that makes sense. When it comes down to it, we’re all in this together, however we choose to parent and educate our offspring.

If I’m going completely mad, feel free to let me know. But if you’re up for joining in, feel free to send me a post via the contact form, twitter, or the comments here. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

  1. you are going completely mad (or are already there, it’s difficult to tell what with me already being mad….) but don’t let that stop you ;-) Can’t promise something for this month as I’ll be at Michaelmas but will hopefully do something for the month after.

    • Gah, had forgotten you’d be away. Odd, considering half of this family will be away, you’d think I’d have noticed!

  2. Well you are no madder than me, I am definitely up for it :)

  3. I’ll have a ponder. I need to find a blogging mojo.

  4. So here’s the post. A view from the journey’s start: http://circusqueen.co.uk/2013/09/when-does-home-education-begin-2/

  5. We’ve got a home ed articles we are writing, we would love to be included in the blog carnival :)

  6. Hi,

    I really enjoy your blog and following you on twitter. We started home ed 3 weeks ago and I started a blog at the same time. I’ve only just found out about the carnival but would love to be involved and contribute another time. Let me know if that would work for you.

    Best wishes, Caroline

    • Hi Caroline, would love to have you. If you can get a post up this week I’ll include it :) can’t get your blog link to work just now though.

  7. Sorry…here is link. Will submit something tomorrow. Great to be involved…caro

  8. jax, i am happy for you to nab anything from my blog for a carnival :) [tho you missed me off last one :( ] i would choose this time the ticksheet page. tho they aren’t resources on their own, they really help me use them! http://petitsharicots.org.uk/weblog/ticksheets-recording-and-strewing/ or, for true resources, here is a history one, which i still stand by :) http://petitsharicots.org.uk/weblog/2010/10/29/resources-post-history/
