Prelude to a Blog - Review and Giveaway

Lisa Bertolini (aka Sisterlisa) is a homeschooling mom of four. She herself is an accomplished blogger. You can find her blogging at The Home Spun Life . She also works behind the scenes at Growing in Grace Magazine, a blog written by and devoted to Christian girls. Now, she is sharing some of her wisdom on blogging with us.

Her ebook, Prelude to a Blog, is a guide to help parents establish a blog and blogging guidelines for their children. My son, Kellen, keeps a blog, and I have found it a very useful tool for our homeschool. Blogging can also be a way for children to network, and interact with other homeschoolers.

We all are aware though, that the internet is not always an easy place, or a safe place to navigate. Sisterlisa provides step by step instructions on how to help your child to establish a blog, while keeping it a fun and safe endeavor. The book will help you set up the blog, establish safety guidelines, and gives tips on a broad range of topics from sharing your faith to blogging courtesies.

Her book is available for purchase via her website, or you can win one here. Just leave a comment, and a winner will be drawn randomly Wednesday September 16th. The winner will be notified by email. So, please, be sure to leave an email address if your email is not enable through blogger.


  1. What a great and wonderful idea. I pray everyone, especially with children will read her eblog.
    Thanks for the info...blessings

  2. Thank you for the giveaway - I'd love to win this for my kids. :)

  3. Oooooh I love free stuff!! :-) How old was your son when he started his blog? I have a hard enough time getting any computer time anymore...not sure if I want to share the computer even!

  4. Kellen isn't fighting me to get on the blog, but I do feel your pain on battling over computer time! :)

    Kellen is 11. he started his blog in 2006.

  5. I would love to win this because my daughter is wanting to start a blog and I have been cautiously thinking how to set it up so she is safe. I have not allowed her to have facebook, myspace, etc.. but I think a blog is a great idea, especially for homeschoolers. I just want to be careful.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. I would love to be entered in your draw. Thanks.
