I enjoy reading blogs just as much as I enjoy writing. It's something about reading others' stories that gives me a dose of inspiration. When we started our home educating journey in 2009, I began to be more intentional about the blogs I read. Home schooling can be a bit lonely if you aren't in an area where there are many home educators or if you don't have a lot of support. During my search I found very few blogs written by African-American home school moms. The few I found early on no longer exist although many of those blogs did offer the boost of encouragement that I was searching for at the time.
Thankfully as time has gone on more African-American home school moms are sharing their stories online either through writing or video. This list is dedicated to 20 blogs or YouTube channels that are created by African-American moms who home educate.
