I started this website in March of 2011 because I wanted to share my passion for interest-led learning.
This site has been a great creative outlet for me- a way to share my thoughts and ideas, as well as resources and books that I’ve come across while living and learning with my kids every day.
I’ve also met so many amazing parents who help their children live passionate, interest-led lives. I’m so grateful for everyone who leaves comments and shares their thoughts and opinions here on the blog. It adds so much value to the posts.
Lately, though, I’ve been struggling with several things. I’ve felt torn between keeping up this site and pursuing other strong passions and interests. Also, my two children are getting older. I thought my life would be a little easier now that the kids are more independent. In some ways this is true, but in many other ways they require even more of my time and attention than before! And learning and playing with them is my top priority and where I want to spend most of my time.
I don’t want to stop writing for this website; it means too much to me, but writing two posts every week isn’t giving me the time to do other things that are equally as important to me, too.
So, as of right now, I’m dropping down to posting once a week on Wednesdays.
That’s not to say that I’ll never post twice a week. Some weeks, especially at the end of the month when I share my monthly resources and activities post, it might be twice a week. Also, some Saturdays, I might post an update on any books I’m working on, guest posts (both my own and anyone else who submits a post for this site), or news I have to share.
But for the most part, Wednesdays will be my regular day to post something new.
Thanks so much for understanding. I want to get to some things that I’ve been missing out on that are really important to me:
-catching up on reading blogs that I love
-being more current with comments on this site
-sharing more interesting and valuable contest I come across on the site’s Facebook Page and Twitter
I will always be available through the comment section here and by e-mail. Please never hesitate to write me with any questions and comments you might have.
I’ve been working on some e-book and audio projects that I’m really excited about that will add a lot of value to this site, too. Hopefully, I’ll be able to share more about that soon.
