Now Entering the Blogosphere…

Posted on January 10, 2007. Filed under: Introduction |

Hi all,

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a children’s literature blog for several months. Seems like there are homeschool blogs and kid lit blogs, and some traffic between them (Yea for Melissa Wiley at Bonny Glen!). And now, there’s a little more traffic, me: Marta Ferguson, freelance writer and editor, homeschool mama.

Seems like I’m always churning over article ideas in my head or on paper–and I thought that blogging some of that prewriting might prove useful to other folks interested in the same issues. And, of course, useful to me in shaping the articles. Blogging on something like *Strategies for Wordless Picture Books* before I submit an article query might, for example, help me figure out that a)Big Important Magazine X just ran an article on the same thing; b)hey, there’s a new e-zine devoted exclusively to your topic; c)there’s lots more approaches than I had seen or considered; or d)the topic is a total yawner.

So, provided all’s well in the household, I’ll be blogging about once a week. I’d love some feedback from homeschoolers on what you’d like to know about children’s literature and some feedback from the kidlitosphere on what you think homeschoolers need to know about kid lit.

BTW, I’m new to the whole blog interface, so if anything seems amiss, please let me know.
