I'm Changing This Blog! I Think....

I don't know if you've noticed how I've disappeared over the last few weeks, but I'm trying to figure out what direction I want to take with this blog. I'm sort of just going through the motions with it because I'm not happy with it right now. I'm still here just behind the scenes making notes and brainstorming. Are there any suggestions? What inspires you to visit a blog? Is there something that you miss on the blog that I used to do?

Asalaamu Alaikum

I think you used to have more pics of what resources you were using and what things you were doing. I'd like to know what method you use to teach duas and surahs and if you are attending any conferences could you share your notes?

I love reading your ideas and projects. It inspires me to do similar things, or helps me brainstorm ideas for our own home.

As salaamu alaikum Sisters,

InshaALLAH I will be more active with the pictures of resources and possible a few videos of how we do things.

I'm taking a few courses and starting an Arabic course with www.myfiks.org - this is another endeavor that has taken up my time in a good way - you really find out how much time you waste when you obligate yourself to learning, SubhanALLAH.

JazakILLAH Khairin for the feedback! It's very helpful.

Take care,
wa salaam,
Nakia

As salaam alaikum,

Are you thinking of changing it to being more resource oriented?

I really enjoy following along with other homeschoolers' journeys and adventures. I tend to enjoy the more personal type blogs, but that is just me.

Wa alaikum as salaam,

no, no. not resource oriented but maybe less cluttered in look, and more organized in thought. I think that my posts are all over the place these days and it's become a chore. I think that I used to be more consistent and perhaps this is what's missing. I don't know. lol.

As-salaamu'alaykum dearest Nakia,

I can't really help here.. because I don't have children.. nor do I homeschool my nephews any more.

I just come here cuz I love you so much :D

And I usually go to a blog that I can learn from. Even if it's about something I wouldn't use (i.e. like home schooling stuff).. I still like learning. I don't like blogs where I have to read to much about a person.. LOL you know.. "I woke up and brushed my teeth" kinda thing. Unless you're teaching me HOW to brush teeth, or something cool about it :)

Lots of Love
Farhana

Wa alaikum as salaam Farhana!
Yes, I don't have the time to tell everyone that I brushed my teeth.

But maybe I will find a miswak tutorial, lol. ;)
