Random Ramblings

I was going to try another "Not me Monday" but couldn't come up with anything real witty tonight, so hopefully I'll have something for you next Monday.

But, I'm going to make a confession.

Hi, my name is Shannon, and I'm addicted to blogs.

There, now it's out in the open!

I'm having so much fun deciding what to blog about each night, finding fun little links & pics to add to my page and reading other people's blogs to see what they're up to. I'm especially enjoying reading other homeschoolers blogs! It is so refreshing to read what other families are doing in their schools, and hear about their day-to-day trials & triumphs. I get such inspiration from some of them and some really creative ideas for our school, as well.

I have a few that I've found, and that I try to read on a regular basis, linked on my sidebar. You can click on any of them and explore the homeschool blogging world.

One neat thing I stumbled across last night was the Homeschoolbar. It is a free toolbar you can download that is perfect for homeschoolers. There are links across the bar to other homeschool blogs, top homeschool sites, children/education sites, social sites, a weather bar, to do list, quotes, holiday sites, games and just one click away is KLOVE radio for you to listen to while working on the computer. It doesn't get any better than that! There are more buttons & more options to add than what I've listed.
I wish I had found this before, since my favorites & bookmarks are filled w/tons of homeschool pages & sites that I need to categorize.

But, I digress. Back to my addiction-I'm currently wishing for a laptop so I don't have to fight my husband or kids for blogging time on our computer. I also can't wait to log on each day and see if anyone has left comments or is a new follower. So, pleeease feed my addiction and leave a comment. It would make me really happy!

Ok... I left a comment... now what... LOL

I too am addicted to blogs. I read way to many. Some times I get way far behind and can't catch up on all the ones I want to follow. I have been trying to keep up with things these days or cut back if needed.

I am also trying to blog more regularly. For a while there I felt like I did not have anything interesting to say.

I got a laptop in November. It has been so helpful because I can blog and check e-mail and things while I keep an eye on the boys and make sure they do school. I was getting way behind in things before that because if I left them they would fool around and not get anything done. I hope you can get a laptop soon. I love mine.

Hi Debbie-
Thanks for the comment:) I'm am thinking more & more about the laptop. It would be nice to be able to be mobile while using the computer! I enjoy reading your happenings at your blog, also.
