Everyone, if we link to this page on our profile pages, we'll help other homeschoolers find fun folks to follow. :) Click the timestamp by Monica's name at the top to get the permalink.
 
Hi everyone! Great to connect with you!
 
I think there will be a way to have public sub-circles soon.
 
I think Phoebe's right--some public/shared circle options will probably come along at some point.

For now, my workaround is these master lists where we can find each other, and announcing my "opt-in circles" for people who actively want to see my posts on certain topics that might be of less interest to the mainstream, or that I don't want to show on my public profile.
 
I am LOVING this!! Melissa's idea is an excellent one - add the permalink to your profile so it's not tough to find the list. the more the merrier.
 
we're a homeschooling family also. 1 highschooler, a middleschooler and elementary
 
This is great! I just joined google+ so I'm really excited to see other homeschoolers on here!
 
Thanks for adding me Lissa. Homeschooling my two boys (11 and 14) here in Virginia...this list could get EXTREMELY long. :o) My blog: http://www.throwingmarshmallows.com - love talking about right-brained learners, tend towards the relaxed side of the spectrum.
 
Hi, I'm homeschooling 7. I'd love to google connect with other homeschoolers. My oldest starts homeschooling high school in the fall--Yikes, how does that work? :)
 
Thanks! Homeschooling 2 and always eager to share links to new resources, ideas and leads.
 
Hi, I'm co-admin of a forum for Australian and NZ homeschoolers, and on the side I homeschool 3 kids (yeah, I do realise it really should be the other way round!!!).
 
Homeschooler here! Currently a 9yo girl and 16yo boy.

Homeschooling high school to preschool here! Love the master list idea!
 
Still figuring this out ... but I'm adding myself. Homeschooling three kiddos in Austin, TX.
 
just by adding a comment here to the list is doing it right, don't worry. if you want to add folks to your personal circle of homeschoolers (if you have such a circle), then hover over the profile pic. it's so good to find you all!
 
I homeschool my son through a charter school in Southern Ca. He'll be a--gasp--fifth grader this fall.
 
So glad to find this list... NOW Google+ makes sense to me!!
 
Homeschooling mom of my 11 year old son in Arizona. Have a blog at http://myhomeschoolingplace.com I was originally going to turn it into a community, but with all of the social media/communities out there, I think I'll stick with people it a straight blog, now I just need to get better at posting on it!
 
Relaxed to panic scheduler to radical unschooler homeschooling family. Graduated first child this year. Remaining two are 12 and 3.@KellyBecko at Twitter (but I rarely post homeschool worthy stuff there...Twitter is my playground). Despite what others have found, Google+ confounds me still.
 
I'm a homeschooling mom in CA with two kids, 8 and 12.
 
I'm a homeschool mom to 3 in the Twin Cities metro. I can't believe my youngest would go to kindergarten this year! My kids are 5, 9 and 10. I am "@homeschool" on twitter, and run http:Homeschoolrecess.com, a free website that helps homeschoolers handle sign ups for field trips and other events.

I'm interested in any group that discusses ONLY homeschooling issues, not religion or politics.
 
Good idea! Thanks for putting this up! I'm a homeschool mom of four, Catholic, co-schooling two days a week with two other families (total number of kids = 11, age range 1-13). I write about coschooling among other things at http://bearingblog.com . Classical, Charlotte-Mason-inspired.
 
My husband is on google+ (+Shamusyoung) but he seldom talks about the kids since he has a rather large following of geeks due to his website.
 
Mmmm, chopped liver. W eggs and fried onions. On little crackers.
 
Cindy Rollins homeschooling 4, graduated 5.
 
I have 9 kids. 2 graduated from ps. I will be schooling 6, maybe 7, this coming year. They are Pre-K through 4th grade. We lean towards Charlotte Mason methods.
 
I don't really get how these lists work yet, but I'll catch on. :) I am a homeschooled (oldest of 7) homeschooler (mother of 4, 8yo-1yo). We are classical/CM.
 
Ok glad to see this list. I'll be adding most of you. Nice to see this many people who share the same ideas.
 
Just FYI no need to tag yourself or even post your profile links; as your name will be a link that if someone hovers over it will let them add to your circles. +Erin Cannon I think most of us have created Homeschool Circles and added most of these people to those circles.

Hey everyone, Secular Classical Homeschooling mom with a 13 year old daughter and a 16 year old son, both homeschooled since birth. I'm adding every homeschooler I come across, but I must warn you all that I'm a pagan, I'm incurably goofy, and I have opinions. Lots of opinions. And when I say, "whatever works for you", I mean that in a nice and sincere way, not a snarky way. ;)

Just starting out (1 month in): 4, 6 and 9 year-olds.

In Melbourne, Australia.

Just starting the homeschool journey with my daughter who will be 3 in April. I also have a 2 month old daughter.
 
We have been homeschooling for 2 years now and still on a learning curve. We are an eclectic, christian unschooling family - ok basically we are still figuring it out but take it one day at a time. This year we decided to try out TOG and some online courses through different sites and we also attend a co-op once a week. I have a 15 DS and 8 DD plus a foreign exchange student this year from Germany.
 
Just starting out with my oldest in preschool :)
 
Homeschooling my 4, 7, and 8 year olds.
 
Wanting to homeschool, but not sure how to go about it. I have a 3 1/2 (will be 4 in April) little boy and a one year old daughter. I also have a 19 year old daughter who went to public school and is now in her first year at The University Of Washington.
Our naturopath is getting a number for her friend, who runs a homeschooling community here. I think it is for Waldorf education. This is all foreign to me, and I've just recently been entertaining the thought of homeschool.
Any tips appreciated and would love to meet other homeschooling parents.
