Feature Friday: As We Walk Along the Road

Every Friday here at Wonderfully Chaotic is Feature Friday where I showcase a different blog or business. If you're interested in being featured, send me an email {shayaddison@wonderfullychaotic.com} and make the subject line "Q&A." (Featured blogs/businesses must abide by the rules of my ads & sponsors.) Today's featured blog is written by a fellow Review Crew Member, Leah, from As We Walk Along the Road. Welcome Leah!
As We Walk Along the Road

First off, tell me a little about yourself, your blog and family.  
I have been married to my husband who is my best friend for 19 years. We have four children ages 14, 13, 9, and 8. I've been homeschooling all along. I began my blog to share about our homeschooling with friends and family. I've been blogging for about 5 or 6 years now.


Why did you start blogging? Has that changed any since you started? 
I first began blogging to share with my friends and family about what we were doing in our homeschool. My social media experiences began as a member of a homeschooling web board, and I loved reading the blogs of others to glean information. 


Over the years my focus has changed because I'm not the new homeschooling mom anymore. I'm the older, more experienced mom. Now I see blogging as a great vehicle to give information and encouragement to other homeschoolers.

What do you blog about the most? (Feel free to list topics/subjects or go into more detail)
I blog the most about homeschooling. I post ideas. I post information about things we've been doing in our homeschool. I post resources. Every once in a while I also post about homemaking. And I will list free or frugal resources. I do reviews for homeschooling products and occasionally for some homemaking products. And I have a blog devoted solely to book reviews that I link to every once in a while.


How did you decide on the name of your blog?
I actually called the blog The Courtney Six first. That's always been our family nickname. I changed it to match the theme verse of our homeschool Duet. 6:4-6  -Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your Godwith all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 

What are your top 3-4 posts, and why?
Okay. This was hard. I picked a few from this past year, but it's hard for me to pick favorites. :-)


For two years I've participated in the Virtual Curriculum Fair. I love this link up because it is always so fun for me to see what things others are using and liking. I linked to the first post from last year.


"I'm Gonna Miss This Sometimes" was a post I wrote about how quickly the homeschool days pass.


"No More Perfect Kids" was part of the Hearts at Home blog hop series this year. I really loved this one because I shared a favorite story from my early mama days.


Why do you blog? What is your blogs purpose?
Here is my blog's purpose statement: "I inform and encourage other homeschooling moms by sharing information about homeschooling and homemaking, by reviewing products and curriculum, and by relating personal stories as they do the homeschooling job God has called them to do."
