Reader Thoughts Requested

My blogging has been rather infrequent due to....time, I suppose. What a year we've had and yes, my blogging is evidence of the demand in other arenas.

I have a question for you non-homeschooling readers: Should I combine my blogs, my family blog and homeschooling blog? As you know from the sidebar you can click on the link and read about our homeschooling adventures. (Yep, it's an adventure. Had one this morning that I'm still recovering from.) I've been posting somewhat on homeschooling but - zero - commenters. I know our purpose is to simply post for our own use, but it would be nice to know if anyone is benefiting. (Or, does that really matter?)

If I combine them, will that bug that non-homeschooler in you? I know, it's my blog, but still....just want to be thoughtful to the readers. Hoping to get some direction from one of your answers.

The homeschooling reader may have some thoughts as well. I'd like to hear from anyone on this.

Can I comment even tho' I homeschool? Ok...thanks! :)

I say combine. If your blog is about your everyday comings and goings, which I know that it is, then homeschooling is definitely a part of that too!
I don't feel you'd be unthoughtful to your non-hs'ing readers any more than you'd think they were unthoughtful to you by posting about their children's after school, sports, weekend or whatever activities. In other words, their everyday lives.
So, I say go for it. Your posts are always from the heart.
It's nice to be back.

I vote for combine them. I know I would enjoy reading about the home schooling. I use to read a homeschooler mom's blog and so enjoyed hearing how and what she was teaching them. Made me wish there had been such a thing when I was raising mine. And I learned a lot!!!!!!

I don't have a problem with you combining. Homeschooling is a big part of your life. I may not comment as much on those posts because it's not part of my life, but I'll still be reading!

Ah, great responses....helpful, for sure. prob on the commenting part. I, too, am a reader of way more than I comment, especially if they have 283 comments on their post already! : )

Thank you all. This helps.

Late to the party to say combine... I'm interested in EVERYTHING in your heart/life!

Combine! Seem like a lot of us bloggies that started about the same time have slowed a bit...This bloggie still likes to read your posts and a combined one would be great!

Thank you, Nancy.
