This is completely fine by me, but since some of you have expressed reticence about "tooting your own horn," I thought I'd create a post specifically for tooting your own horn.Do you have a blog? What topics do you blog about? Are there a couple of pieces you are especially proud of? Please share! … [Read more...]

Tip Jar and a Holiday Giving Opportunity

Tip Jar

A while back, I mentioned that using a google reader doesn't give my blog page views. Since I get paid for blogging based on how many page views I get, I suggested that those of you who use readers therefore might want to consider clicking through from time to time. At the time, one reader emailed me asking if I might consider setting up a "tip jar" so that google reader readers could contribute a little something without having to click through. Well, I've finally figured out how to do … [Read more...]

Homeschool Reflections Call Out

homeschool 2

If you have ever been a homeschooler, I want your story.Any discussion of homeschooling seems to become extremely polarized* almost inevitably. When I was a child, I only ever heard good things about homeschooling - and my parents and the other parents around them would not consider that there could be any downsides or drawbacks to homeschooling. At the same time, there are also those who are opposed to homeschooling who refuse to consider that there could be any positive aspects to … [Read more...]

First of all, I'm on twitter. So if you're on twitter, follow me!Second, while I am still doing "Worthwhile Reads" posts from time to time - especially when I find articles that share a specific theme - I've been looking for another way to highlight posts I find and like on other blogs.
