Welcome, New Readers!

January 20, 2006 @ 4:09 am | Filed under:

There’s been a lot of new traffic to the site as a result of the BoB Awards. I thought I should take a moment to introduce new readers to the rest of my family, since I’m the only one with a nifty “About Me” link. My fabulous husband Scott holds forth here. “Jane,” who chose her alias in honor of a favorite book character (it was a close race between Jane of Lantern Hill and Triss), is ten and a half at the time of this writing. “Rose” is our sweet and thorny seven-and-a-half year old. “Beanie” is bouncy daughter number three, a hairsbreadth away from turning five. “Wonderboy,” who earned his nickname before he was a week old (and continues to add to its legacy on a daily basis), celebrated his second birthday last month. And then of course there is Baby Girl Whose Name We Aren’t Telling Yet, who is due to join the party in April.

Welcome to all the new visitors. I’d love to get to know who you are, so please feel free to drop me a note or comment!

In other blog news, I should mention that I have revamped my blog categories. When I began the blog, I was resistant to labeling our learning adventures with academic subject names, since for us all subjects are intertwined. However, I realize that readers who are looking for resource suggestions for specific subjects such as math, history, and so on, find it easier to zero directly in on their topic of choice. With that in mind, I have revisited every post in my “Fun Learning Stuff” category and added a specific subject tag as well. If you click on Archives and Categories in the right sidebar, you’ll see what I mean.

Also, there’s a new feature in the right sidebar. Click on “This Time Last Year” (under “Where to Find Me”) to see what was happening here in the Bonny Glen one year ago today. I’ll update the link daily, more or less.

    This is unrelated to the post but I just wanted to make sure that you know about the Bleak House on Masterpiece Theater starting tomorrow night. Aren’t you in a year of Dickens? I am also going to mention this on my blog, but since I am sure that you don’t get to everyone every day, I wanted to make sure you knew.
