Beginner’s Guide to Joining iHomeschool Hangouts as a Panel Member

Here are your step by step instructions on how to join an iHomeschool Hangout on Air as a panel member. This means that you will be visible both during the live broadcast and later in the recorded video. If you want to watch the broadcast or recording, see the main hangout page or our event page. 1. Join Google Plus Create a personal profile on G+ and fill it out completely. 2.Turn on notifications When you’re logged in to G+, look on the left hand side, under Home → Settings to customize your notifications. You’ll notice a section specifically for Hangouts. You can have notifications come to your mail and even to your phone. 3. Be ready at least ten minutes early The equipment you need for a Google Hangout on Air is minimal. You need a computer with a webcam (or iPad) along with headphones. If your headphones have a built in microphone, that is best. 4. Don’t forget to check your camera view What can you see in the background? Declutter the view behind yourself. Also, take care with what you’re advertising:  no branded material (besides your own) is allowed on YouTube. Old Navy t-shirts, Coke-a-Cola signs, or Starbucks coffee mugs would be examples. 5. Wait for your invitation from the host If you’re a member of the panel, you’ll get an invite from iHN to join a Google Hangout on Air (or it may say video call). Click join to enter the hangout. Your mic may be automatically muted when you join, so you’ll need to look in the upper right hand bar to turn it back on. 6....

Pinterest Flips and Flops

Welcome to Pinterest Flips and Flops, a new monthly blog hop that will be hosted by me and some of my favorite homeschool bloggers! A Flip is something that you see on Pinterest that not only makes you so excited that your stomach does flips, but you also Flip out when you are able to recreate it! A Flop is one of those “looks great on paper” projects that you literally want to Flop into the trash after attempting to recreate it. We want to see both. Your Pinterest successes and failures. Not every blogger is crafty, and those of us who do consider ourselves crafty may not perpetually measure up to those insanely brilliant and gifted bakers, photographers, knitters, designers who we drool over on Pinterest. Check out these Flips and Flops from some of your favorite homeschool bloggers: Ticia at Adventures in Mommydom Heather at Blog, She Wrote Sharla at The Chaos and the Clutter Alisha at Flourish Renee at Great Peace Academy Heidi at Home Schoolroom Dianna at The Kennedy Adventures Amy at Milk and Cookies Susann at Momma Hopper Jamie at See Jamie Blog Sarah at Small World at Home Jamie at The Unlikely Homeschool This is your chance, to show off or make fun of yourself…or both.
