Who Are We and What Do We Do?
The Homeschool Review Crew is a division of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. As a team, we work together using current on the market home educational products and share our experiences with our blog audiences and on our social media platforms.
- Have an active blog on any platform (eg. Blogger, WordPress, Wix, etc) OR have an active YouTube Channel or be active on a social media platform (Instagram or Facebook). We define active as one new blog post/YouTube Vlog each week. For Social Media Reviewing we define active as several posts a week.
- Be currently home educating at least one child. Your child/ren can be anywhere from Pre-K to 12th Grade.
- For bloggers and YouTube vloggers be active on a social media platform of your own choosing ( Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest )
- For social media reviewers, be active on a second social media platform of your choice. ( Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest )
- Love curriculum, homeschool products (both physical and digital) and books.
What Do We Require of our Team?
- Maintain an active blog/vlog by posting a minimum of ONE non-sponsored post a week on any family-friendly topic of your own choosing or for Social Media reviewers maintaining two social media platforms by posting non-sponsored content to each several times a week.
- You need to be committed to sharing each of your reviews on your social media platforms a minimum of twice. This can be twice on one platform or on any two platforms of your choosing in one week.
- Use the product you receive during the review period (usually about six weeks) and write an honest review. We do not require you to write a positive review and we do not tell you what to write. We do, however, have a few minimum requirements including a minimum word count.
- A commitment to meet deadlines and specific time frames by posting reviews to your blog and linking them up on our blog during the due date window.
- On a regular basis visit our private Review Management forum where we provide support, encouragement, and information necessary to complete each review.
Our review year runs from January to mid-November. This year, we have decided we’d love to bring a few people on throughout the year.
