Lessons from 3 Years of Blogging
1- I'm not a planner. Or, I should say that I like to plan, but I'm bad at following through. If you look over the past three years of homeschooling, you can see that I have long periods of time where I don't follow through on my plan or where I decide to break away form my plan and try something new. For our fourth year of homeschooling, I'm not going to plan anything or possibly only plan a few weeks at a time. My kids (especially Dragonfly) have so much drive for learning that I feel like between my creativity and their questions, we'll be fine. I'm excited about where we might end up.
2- How to use InLinkz to organize. I wrote a blog post about this, which you can read here. I'm very pleased with the look of the blog right now.
3- How to plug HTML into my blogging script. Makes me feel very smart and geeky.
Here's to another year!
