LinkedIn For Homeschoolers
You might be asking yourself, "Isn't this just like Facebook?" While it might look that way on the surface let me show you why it is different.
Your Facebook friends are those people you are connected to on a personal level and therefore share personal information with. Facebook is about posting pictures from your vacation or your thoughts about a movie you just watched. LinkedIn is about building and maintaining professional relationships.
Now remember, you have a job. While you are not looking to move up in your career (because there is no way to get promoted), you can still build a network of other homeschool families, authors, mentors, businesses and individuals who support homeschooling.
LinkedIn is a great reminder that you are on a career path. There is no better way to learn about opportunities for consulting and freelance writing available to homeschool parents. We all have something to offer and something to learn. If you don't put yourself out there, you can't be found.
Remember, you have a job, a very important job of teaching your children and you should treat it with the respect it deserves.
