Wow. This has been much longer in coming than I would have ever anticipated.
Several months ago I got very very sick with food-poisoning and ended up being sick for almost four weeks. To say that it threw me off blogging would be an understatement. It threw me off work, family, travel – everything. And then I had to play catch-up.
Then I got stupid (more stupid?). I decided that I didn’t want to be the kind of blog that updated people on things like my health, or other issues in our lives beyond those related to education. That decision left me feeling kind of stuck and in the end frozen when it came to writing anything else. I didn’t feel like I could just start writing again without an explanation, but didn’t want to bore people with an explanation.
Such a silly decision that left me not writing for the last few months, despite still reading prolifically on education, co-founding a highly successful new foundation teaching entrepreneurship to high school students and emailing myself dozens of articles on educational subjects that I wanted to write about.
There is so much that I should have written about, particularly as homeschooling got harder and the novelty wore off.
So…this is a very simple post, almost just as a way of giving myself permission and incentive to start writing again. Jumping back on that horse (not that it ever threw me in the first place!).
I am very much looking forward to beginning to think about, write about and engage in discussion with you on education, homeschooling and unschooling again through this medium.
