1. Add our Brand New Blog to Your Feed Reader
Personally, I like using Feedly. With Feedly, you can access all of your RSS subscriptions on all of your devices and everything remains synced. Adding your favorite blogs is crazy simple too. Just two steps: paste the url to the website and click add.
2. Subscribe to our Newsletter
To keep everyone up to date with our brand new blog, we’ll be sending out a Saturday update that contains all of our weekly blog posts in one condensed newsletter. We also occasionally send newsletters that contain product discounts, notifications of new products and sales (including the 2016 Omnibus) and Twitter party announcements. We will never bombard you with useless email. Everything we send you is valuable, and although we will sometimes share recommended resources, these emails are not a sales pitch. Unlike many email lists, we never sell access to our list to companies. (Even though we get asked to do that!) Our email list is us talking straight to you.
3. Follow the Hashtag #ihsnet on Twitter
Our official Twitter feed is run by Amy and Jimmie, as well as our monthly party hosts Sarah and Renee, but the hashtag #ihsnet contains tweets by our entire network of homeschool parents just like you.
4. Link Up Your Own Blogs With Us
While all new blog hops are open to only current members of iHN, if you are a blogger and would like more traffic, you are welcome to link up your posts to some of old blog hops. Sign up to our newsletter to be notified of opening dates.
5. Link Up Your Social Media Profiles With Us
If you are a homeschooler who loves to make new friends and connect with other homeschoolers on social media, iHomeschool Network invites you to add your profiles links to our popular collections for Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and more.
6. Publish Your Book With Us
Do you have an idea for a book? A story to tell the world? Let us help you bring that vision to reality with our easy to use publishing service. iHN Publishing has already published four successful books by authors within our network. Now we are opening up our publishing service to anyone with a family friendly, non-fiction topic. Although homeschooling is our primary niche, your book can be any topic relevant to homeschool parents — homemaking, parenting, entrepreneurship, or personal development.
7. Follow the Hashtag #ihsnet on Instagram
Many homeschoolers have become accustomed to using the #ihsnet hashtag on Instagram, just like Twitter. Searching this hashtag can bring you into the worlds of other homeschoolers just like yourself. You’ll be like a fly on the wall in their homes and see first hand what a day in their homeschool looks like.
8. Attend the iHomeschool University
Learn how to homeschool with expert advice from veteran homeschool moms. Course content comes in three forms: Self-Paced Text and Video with Printable Handouts/Checklists, MP3 Audio Recordings, and Massive Digital Guide —The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas. Your subscription gives you access to the online courses for a full year. Download the handouts, audio files, and The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas before your subscription expires and you can keep them forever.
9. Get our FREE Book, Banish Blahs
When you subscribe to our newsletter, you’ll automatically receive a copy of Banish Blahs: Over 200 Teaching Ideas to Motivate Homeschool Kids and Make Mom’s Job Easier, a collection created for you by the members of our community.
10. Watch our Recorded Hangouts on YouTube
While we are no longer hosting these live, weekly events, we plan to keep them up on YouTube indefinitely. We have dozens of videos featuring bloggers, authors, and speakers. Topics include Teaching Creative Writing, Music Appreciation, Living Math, Stress-Sleep-and-Self-Care, Getting Dads Involved, and much, much more!
