If you regularly visit my blog you are familiar with all of the reviews that I write about homeschool curriculum. There’s no way I could afford all of the curriculum that we are blessed to be able to use. So how do I get all this wonderful motherload of awesomeness? Simply put, I am a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew. And….
So, why would you want to join the Crew?
- Free curriculum!!! – There are sooooo many opportunities to review curriculum!! If you browse through my review categories, you will find that probably 90% of the reviews that I are for homeschool curriculum. The items can be anything from preschool to high school, digital materials to textbooks, audio books, supplemental movies, and tons more. We’ve even received board games and amazing skincare products. What I especially love about this, is that I’ve been introduced to life-changing products that we continue to use after the review period and that I will even purchase advanced levels as my kids outgrow what we were given. I’m extremely thankful for that. Without the Crew, we wouldn’t be using curriculum that we now have incorporated fully into our schedule, love, and recommend to others. Many of the curriculum I might not would have ever heard of or sought out to research.
- Friendships and Support – As part of the Crew, you have access to a closed forum. This is a place where we learn about upcoming vendors, apply to review products and get all of the information needed. But it is sooooo much more than that. There’s also areas in the forum where members can request prayer, general encouragement, asking technical questions concerning blogging, sale used curriculum and lots more. It’s amazing the support that is given. I might never meet many of these lovely people in person (although I have some!!!), but my fellow members make up at least half of my prayer list. We support each other through spouse’s job loss, parenting issues, moves, you name it. There’s also a closed Facebook group just for us “Crewbies”.
- Blogging Growth – The Crew will help challenge you as a blogger. Of course, you do have to be consistent in your posting to be part of the Crew but it’s more than that. There are opportunities to participate in sharing events, pin parties, blog hops and guest posting. Some Crew members have much more experience that I do that I can glean from and then there are newbies that I will try to help if I can.
