There are actually several home education magazines published right here in Canada. We also list homeschooling e-zines, newsletters, blogs, radio shows, podcasts, and YouTube clips and channels. Most are for home school parents, but some are by and/or for homelearners.
We've also included some resources for alternative lifestyles that include homeschooling among their topics.
Note: A "blog" is a "web log" or online diary -- like a frequently updated webpage where you publish your thoughts and share information and links and such.
