Some examples of article topics are: my problem and how I solved it; what works for my family; best ways to teach a subject; a day in the life of my family; the joys of home schooling; the story of my home business; a Top Ten list of anything (favorite ways to teach math, best ways to deal with toddlers while teaching, top ten lessons from having a home business, etc.)

Children are also welcome to submit articles and artwork.

If you have a website, you may include a link to your website in your article. However, we ask that you backlink to Home School Marketplace from your site in return for us posting your link on ours.

We also are interested in poems, quotes, top ten lists, convention reports, cartoons, funny stories, graphics, and anything else that could be a part of an ejournal.

Don't want to write an article? Then please at least share what home schooling means to you.

I home schooled my three boys for their whole schooling experience, so I know what home schooling means to me.

But I wasn't sure what home schooling means to all the other parents who are educating their children at home.

Then I remembered a great book I read recently called, The Wisdom of Crowds, by James Surowiecki..

He makes a strong case that when you ask a crowd of people to answer a specific question... the answer they come up with is often better than what even the smartest person in the group could come up with on their own.

Call it the collective wisdom of people.

And that's when I got a crazy idea. What if I surveyed as many home schoolers as I could to find out what home schooling means to them.

If enough people participate, we should get the answer.

I'd really like you to be a part of this survey, so please go RIGHT NOW and tell me what home schooling means to you!
