Some Blog Business: FAQ, my spam policy & social media


This post will serve to tell you about three new things:  my FAQ page, my spam policy & other places you can find me on the Internet.

~  My NEW FAQ Page:  I have just added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to my site.  I thought it would be good to answer some basic questions that people may have when they meet a homeschooler for the first time.  Most of them are questions or comments I have received from other people.  A couple I threw in because I know other homeschoolers have been asked them.  Please read over it when you have time and send me some feedback.

~ My Spam Policy:  Just thought it would be a good idea to mention that while I love comments, I will delete any comment from a person who uses a link that goes directly to a page trying to sell something.  Even if it’s homeschool curriculum and the comment seemed to come from a legitimate homeschooler, I will consider that spam.  Bloggers can and should promote their blogs by making comments and fostering online relationships with each other, but I don’t think it’s cool to search the web for possible site pages related to what you are selling, make one bogus comment, leave the link and never return.

~ Twitter:  Though I have neglected Twitter ever since my second son was born, I have started to use it again.  Hopefully I’ll keep at it.  If you’d like to follow me, I’m at @mamaofletters.  And, FYI, I have created a second account for my photography business, which is at @S_P_Photography.  While that one will focus only on photography related topics, @mamaofletters will have a little bit everything: my writing, photography, and of course, daily life.

~ Facebook:  I don’t advertise my Facebook account very much because it’s mainly used for my face-to-face family and friends.  I keep them in touch with my boys and my life.  However, I also follow some of the people I have met online and have formed a mutual, friendly online relationship with.  If you are one of these people, you’ll know who you are, and I invite you to find me on Facebook.  If I don’t accept your friendship, please don’t take it personally.  I just keep Facebook rather private.  (Well, as private as a Facebook account can get.)

As always, thank you for visiting me here on my blog!  Have a great week!
