The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine announces the launch of their newly updated and improved online community—HomeschoolBlogger.com.

(HSB)—the world's largest and free homeschool blog site—got a clean,

According to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine® publisher/owner Gena Suarez, “The plan
behind the change is to link great blogging with the ever-expanding homeschool
community to usher back in the 'blogging craze' that hit when HomeschoolBlogger
was launched in 2005. It was a lot of work, we pushed forward, and now we're doing
it. This is a major upgrade, using the popular WordPress platform and will mean a
whole new way of blogging life for our members at HomeschoolBlogger.com."
During August ALONE, HomeschoolBlogger.com received thirteen million page views!
One of the draws to HSB is the ease in discovering new blogs and connecting with
those of similar homeschool and family interests. This online community has a
safety-net feel unlike other blog sites, where using a random blog button could
reveal undesirable content.
HomeschoolBlogger’s Senior Editor, Kristen Hamilton, oversees the site. She and
other authors contribute homeschool-related posts. She assists members and keeps an
eye on new blogs to identify inappropriate content.
Kristen states: “HomeschoolBlogger is comprised of a large group of bloggers who make
HSB their home base. This is the largest upgrade in our five-year history and makes
the community even stronger with its exciting new features.”
Here’s a look at some new HomeschoolBlogger.com features:
• Intuitive user interface—A “What You See Is What You Get” editor works seamlessly
with the HTML editor. Also advanced image uploading and in-browser image editing.
• Widgits—Add tools like search bars or calendars by clicking and dragging.
• Backups—Click a button to create backups with instant saving capacity.
• Spam protection—Integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and
