Thanks for checking out my site! Thanks for the information. I looked at your friend's site (bascom.com) and I agree! It would be wonderful to create a learning portal for homeschooling. It's funny, because that was one of my goals upon beginning my blog. I wanted a place for homeschoolers in our area to be able to stay current on educational trends as well as provide a hub to access resources. In addition, I enjoy creating lessons for both regular classroom teachers as well as homeschoolers that integrate technology, in what I hope to be, a meaningful way. I know teachers are limited on time and are currently being bombarded with new technology tools. Hopefully, on my site, they can find a few ideas to use along the way. Thanks again for your kinds words and have an awesome day!
