    Question Secular homeschooling magazines?

    Which homeschooling magazines are best for secular families? Our library gets two, one of which is called Homeschooling Today, with some religious content, and another which is even more religious (I forget its title). What titles should I be looking for?

    Hello Mrs. Patmore. How is Mr. Patmore today?

    In response to your inquiry, you're probably SOL.

    The only one I know of went the way of the dinosaurs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secula...ing_(magazine)

    If you find one, I'd love to have a look

    There was a thread on this a few years ago here. I don't think the offerings have changed much.

    Over the years, I've seen a few private efforts....some really good stuff, but they always seem to kinda poop out in a few months.

    Would love to see someone take this project on, but wonder if the readership exists to support it?

    I imagine it's not a big money maker.....doubt it would fly.

    Thanks, all. The best magazine on the old thread is an unschooling magazine that is no longer published. :-(

    Oh well, I guess I can just save time and money by not buying magazines. I can't really say if there are enough secular homeschoolers looking for magazines to make it a good idea.

    You could just read here. Its a daily reading in itself. Some entertainment, some education, some other stuff. And, unlike a magazine, its interactive (but still retains benefit of being able to read it in whichever room of the house you prefer).
    Homeschooling DS13, DS6.

    My spelling was fine, then my brain left me.

    I think this sort of content has mostly moved to blogs.

    But also, some statewide groups are secular and have great magazines like the VaHomeschoolers magazine, which is very sleek and well made.

    If you mean HEM, you can still reread them here:

    403 Forbidden

    if that helps at all. If you're talking about GWS, it's here:

    ISSUU - GWS Back Issue Set by Patrick Farenga

    but difficult if not impossible to read on anything but an iThing, so well worth the money and shelf space to buy this:

    Growing Without Schooling: A Record of a Grassroots Movement, Vol. 1: August 1977 - December 1979: John Holt, Susannah Sheffer: 9780913677100: Amazon.com: Books

    if you can find a copy. There are also bound books of selected HEM articles. Helen says to tell you guys hello and that she's doing well and too busy loving on her grandbabies and writing about Alaska to stress over the demise of the magazine much.

    The Link is still around:

    Free Homeschool Easy Homeschooling Now :: The Link Homeschool Magazine

    but it reads like a shopping mall now, although you might be able to sift through the ads and find some worthwhile content if you have a higher frustration tolerance than my illustrious self., which you probably do.

    There's also this:

    The Homeschooler Magazine - The Homeschooler Magazine

    if you're not done with Sandra Dodd, Sue Patterson, and Pam Sorooshian.

    Cheryl Seelhoff was talking about returning to paper publishing not too long ago, but I think her health might have gotten in the way and shot that dream down.

    That's all I know about. Please enlighten me if you can.

    Those are awesome links I would not have found on my own - thanks IEF!!!

    Plus, I really like clicking on a link that's 'Forbidden'!

    Glad you're back IEF, hope you stick around!
