I have a large amount of blogs that I read daily and I do realize that if you don't actually go to the blog, that site reader won't actually note that you've seen the blog, making those who use this medium as a way of employment a penny short.
Delicious helps me keep my bookmarks organized (sorta), and my feed reader I rarely use. I like to actually go to the blogs.

I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…
...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him. And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived. We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
