Hello everyone! Okay, so I know that all of you bloggers out there have eagerly been awaiting the 2014 Colorful Blog Planner!  And today is finally the day! Whoo hoo! Okay, maybe I’m more excited than some of you, but I am really enjoying this colorful planner laying around on my desk. it actually inspires me to blog just because I like to write in my planner! The only thing I haven’t quite perfected is that I love these Foray Colored pens, this on is the perfect green color. Unfortunately I tend to move posts around quite a bit since I blog in advance. So…use pretty colorful pen…or use ugly pencil so I can move posts…ugh. And yes I’ve tried colored pencils. But they don’t write as nicely. And don’t come in this green that I’m loving. What a dilemma.

  Hello awesome readers. Today I come to you with a cry for support. Thank you to so many of you who supported last week’s blog post about honoring copyright. Unfortunately, this action ruffled some feathers of one of the Facebook groups in question. They’ve chosen to have their members report my Confessions of a Homeschooler Facebook account as abusive and Facebook has disabled my account in response. PLEASE HELP! Today I come to you with a cry for support to have my account reinstated. I don’t know if it will work or not, but I’m hoping if we flood Facebook with requests they may take notice. I’m currently trying to appeal to Facebook to get the account reinstated and would appreciate any support you are comfortable giving! If you feel led to support my cause, please use hashtag: #WeLoveCoah Feel free to copy and paste any of the tweet/FB posts below, or create your own! Please Reinstate http://www.facebook.com/ConfessionsofaHomeschooler for … [Read more...]
