The Post that Almost Did Not Get Written

I have been online a long time, and am active in social media and other arenas. I am supposedly "influential," if you believe any of the measures of this sort of thing.

It is time to use my influence to talk about something REALLY important.  Not home schooling. Not home business. But something real, that for all the talking about it still leaves its victims feeling isolated, judged, and alone.

So alone.

A Home Business That is the Real Deal


It has been almost exactly three years since I wrote in this blog! It is amazing how easy it is to get out of the habit of writing and just abandon something that was all consuming for years. I guess I stopped writing when I stopped homeschooling.

I focused more on the homeschooling side of this blog and not so much on the home business side. I guess I was afraid of being too "salesy" and seeming like I was just trying to sell something.

But homeschoolers are almost always single income families, and as such, are in need of a supplemental income, or a Plan B for retirement, or both. So I have really been remiss in not recommending Strong Future International. It was one of the first home businesses I ever tried, and it has been a reliable source of supplemental income for me for nearly 14 years.

What College Graduates Don’t Know About America


Three years ago, I wrote the following article about whether or not college has a positive impact on good citizenship. It had the boring title, "The Civic Impact of College."  ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Not surprisingly, it didn't get many views.

But I think it is an important topic, and my last article about college ("Does College Matter?") generated quite a bit of interest, so I thought it was time to revisit the question.
