New Beginnings

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers.
But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.
~Sarah Ban Breathnach

For the last few months I've had this dream. It was about a place where like-minded, Waldorf-inspired homeschoolers can connect on an even, community platform and visually share their inspired lessons and ideas. A place where we could work together to archive those ideas and easily access them to assist in our own lesson planning and inspiration.

I hope you'll dream with me!
This team blog is open to all homeschoolers who are using Waldorf-inspired methods, whether they are using them exclusively or are melding that inspiration with other educational methods and theories (unschooling, Enki, Charlotte Mason, etc.)

If you're interested in joining, please send an email to tasteofwaldorf AT gmail DOT com. Through Blogger, I'll send you an invitation to join and you can post as much - or as little - as you want! Links, pictures, lessons, ideas-- the sky is the limit!

I hope you'll feel welcome here!


1. Is there a time limit to join?

This community blog is ongoing; you can join anytime.

2. How do I join the Taste of Waldorf blog?
Send an email to tasteofwaldorf AT gmail DOT com. Provide me with your name/email address and blog address.

3. What happens when I send an e-mail to join?
I'll send you an invite through Blogger. Blogger will send you a link to confirm your membership. If you have a Blogger username, enter this and your password and you're all set. If you do not have a Blogger username, you will need to create one before you'll be a member.

4. Do I need a blog to join?
No, only an email address. However, when you sign up, you will be asked to create a username, and you can create a blog (for free!) at this time.

5. How do I post a picture?
When you create a new Blogger post, you'll see icons above the text you're typing. Click on the icon on the right; this will pop up a window that has a few options. You can upload a picture from your computer, insert a picture from a website (use this option if you've already uploaded a picture elsewhere), and select where in the post the picture will be placed. When you've entered the necessary information, select "upload picture" and Blogger will automatically insert the code into your post.

6. How do I link my name to my website?
If you enter a website URL into that field in your profile, the posts you make will link your name to your website. That feature isn't working. I've added a list of contributors in the side bar that links to each person's blogger profile. Also, feel free to incorporate a link to your blog in your post.

7. Is joining the Taste of Waldorf blog and joining the Waldorf-Inspired Homeschoolers Web Ring the same thing?
No. These are two separate entities. This blog acts as the hub for the web ring. You are invited to join either or both. To find out more information about the Waldorf-Inspired Homeschoolers web ring go here.
