Blog Give-away

Do you have a diary? Do you have your own blog? Why or why not? A blog is much like a diary, or it can be if you choose to go that direction.

I love writing. I remember keeping a diary as a very young girl and adult. When my daughter was born, I kept a diary for her for several years. Some day she will enjoy reading it. Do you find that writing helps you express yourself, even if nobody ever reads what you write? Blogging can be great therapy. I read an article the other day about how blogging gives therapeutic aid to patients. I am not surprised.

If you own a business, even a home business, blogging is a great way to promote that business. Do your relatives live far away? Blogging is a super way to keep friends and family up on the goings on in your family. Are you an expert in some area? Other folks are always looking for help. Your blog might just be the ticket. Some people even blog together. Then there are “vlogs” (video blogs). Blogging is also a great way to get kids to write more. If they are blogging about their passion, they will enjoy what they are doing. There are lots of different ways to express yourself via a blog.

Don’t let blogging cause anxiety because you don’t know all the ins and outs. I recently took a free intro to blogging course and it was great. I was able to learn at my own pace because the course was automated. I went on to take a full eight week blog writing course that covered absolutely everything I needed to know and then some! It was invaluable. It will take some time for me to implement all I learned, but I am making headway and having the time of my life as I go.

How about you–are you ready to start a blog? I want to help you if you really want to learn about blogging. I contacted the site I took my courses from and they have agreed to partner with me and offer 5 of my readers a free 8 week blogging course–Blogging 101. Click here to look around the site. Sign up for the free pre-course to blogging, then come back here and leave a comment telling me your top 3 reasons for wanting to take the blogging course. The contest begins today, April 25, 2011 and ends May 8, 2011. For an extra entry, click to follow them on Twitter–@blogwriting-and leave another comment telling me that.

Free Chemistry Curriculum Giveaway!

Giveaway from Friendly Chemistry: A $100 Teacher & Student Curriculum Set!

After a quick read through the introduction of Friendly Chemistry, you’ll find that, hmm, chemistry is a little more interesting than you thought. Read a bit longer and you’ll find yourself surprisingly absorbed in elements and molecules.

The writers and publishers of Friendly Chemistry are Joey and Lisa Hajda, two very qualified teachers. They describe Friendly Chemistry like this: “Friendly Chemistry was written using simple language and a host of analogies to make learning (and teaching!) chemistry easy. We believe that the chemistry concepts presented in Friendly Chemistry are NOT watered-down. The concepts are just explained in ways that are readily understood by most learners. Coupled with these explanations is a host of teaching aids, labs and games which makes the learning concrete and multi-sensory. Students find the course fun and painless. Parents often comment, ‘I wish I had had this when I was taking chemistry. Now it all makes so much sense!’ ”

Visit the Friendly Chemistry site for answers to questions about the program for homeschoolers or for answers to questions about using the program in private or public schools. The set retails for $100 ($50 for the student edition, including manipulatives + $50 for the teacher edition).

Girls Planner – Day by Day… Me Refined

The reason behind the title . . . as each day goes by in this amazing stage in a tween/teens life your being refined into the individual that God has intended for you to be. It’s a process and it happens bit by bit, day by day. While I was pondering different titles this song just kept coming to mind.

Purify my heart
Let me be as gold and precious silver
Purify my heart
Let me be as gold, pure gold

Refiner’s fire
My heart’s one desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You Lord
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You my Master
Ready to do Your will

Brian Doerksen / 1990 Mercy/Vineyard Publishing

What’s inside –

The planner is compiled into an 8×10 coil book, small enough to carry yet big enough to track your life and the memories along the way.

* In between each month there is a full budgeting page, complete with a spot to chart your long term savings goals!
* There is also a social page with room for goals, priorities, journaling, etc.
* Your day is set up to ‘hold it all’, from the priority for the day, homework planning and evening plans. At the end of each week you have spots designated for ‘assignment updates and deadlines’, ‘need to get done list’, and what you can’t forget for that week.
* The rest of the planner consists of room for notes, ‘did you know facts’, math help formulas, contacts etc.

here’s a glimpse inside . . . Girls Planner

The Homeschool Lounge is giving one planner away. If you are not a member of THL, you can find out more about them at:
