    Many members of SHS.com also happen to be bloggers. Some host their blogs at Wordpress, Blogger, or Homeschool Blogger. Others host their blogs on their own domain.

    But for those who are starting new blogs, or want to have a blog focusing on secular homeschooling, you might want to host your next blog right here at SecularHomeschool.com!!
    Here's why...



    1) It's Simple !!
    Starting a new blog is as easy as clicking "Create New Post" on the main Blogs Page



    2) It's Easy to Use
    The blog interface couldn't be more user-friendly. You simply pick a title for your blog post and start writing! The formatting tools are very similar to what you would find on any word processing software, but if you have any questions about what one of the icons does, just hover your cursor over it to have it identified.



    3) It's Fully Featured
    Just like most blogging hosts, blogs at SHS.com have the ability to add images, videos, links, html, smilies, tags, and more. In addition, blogs can be saved as drafts to work on later, or published immediately.

    Who says Topsy never listens when you speak?? When member Teri inquired about a locator map for our more "visual" members, I really tried to pay attention - - even though there were lots of bright shiny objects (and a bag of Dove Dark Chocolate sitting on my nightstand) to distract me.

    Fearing that I might never get back this momentary bout of concentration, I went right to work and created our new SecularHomeschool.com Member Map!! If you would like to see where other secular homeschoolers are located, simply click on the link to view. Hover over each pushpin with your mouse to see the member username.


    To be added to the map, simply click on the "Additions" drop-down menu, and click on "Simple Addition" to add your site username and city, state, or zip code.

    Of course, you may still use our Member Locator feature to find other local members as well.

    Maybe I'm a little too Facebook addicted but I think it would be really nice to have some sort of notification thing where it told you when a post you commented on was replied to other then having to hunt all the posts down and check the icon next to them. Maybe there is something here and I'm missing it?
    Sarbare0704 asked this great question on our Feedback forum today, and I thought the answer to it might be interesting to ALL our regular forum posters!!
    Oh...no worries, Sara! We are Facebook competitive around here!! There is this great little setting in your "Settings" menu that will accomplish just what you are asking for. Head up to your Settings menu -> then look for "Forum Settings" in your lefthand sidebar. Scroll down to "Default Thread Subscription Mode". You will see a drop-down box where the default setting is "Do Not Subscribe." You want to change this setting to: "Through My Control Panel Only" (OR you can have the notifications sent to you via email, if you don't mind a clogged up inbox!!)

    With this setting, you will get notifications each time you log in of any new responses to the threads you have posted in! Cool, huh??
