For many families, the best option for their dynamic and the education of their children is to homeschool. At the same time, many families require two sources of income to survive. Balancing work commitments and educating your kids isn’t easy, so many homeschooling parents look into alternative sources of revenue, such as blogging. But, can you blog and homeschool?
Is it easy to blog and homeschool? It does require a bit of organization, but it is not that difficult. The chances are that if you homeschool, you are already a very organized individual. Below are a few tips to help you make it work for you.
Brainstorm a list of topics you would like to write about and then outline them. These frameworks do not need to be overly detailed—just include enough information to make it easy for you write the post when you find the time. You can group them by theme, making it easier for you to produce a series of posts to grab your readers and get them invested.
Part of the struggle is just finding the time to write. However, your children will need to write as part of their schooling. Take advantage of those moments and write your posts. Not only are you getting your work done, but you are also modeling the habits of a good writer for your children.
Whenever you have some free time, write a post or two. It is okay to write many posts at once because you do not need to publish as you write; you can schedule your posts, so they go public and a particular day and time. This will help you keep your blog active while lowering your stress.
