I've lost count of how many times I've left and then returned to blogging. I'm not trying to play hard to get or anything, its just, life happens. = )
But this time I left for a different reason. My family and I were victims of a hacking and black mailing incident. It was scary. Sad. Sick. And part of me wanted to run away forever from social media and all, but, I came back because I feel that I benefit greatly from online homeschooling sources. Like everything in life, there is good and bad and we just have to try our best to protect ourselves, but not let the evil prevail.
I would like to take this opportunity to urge you all to be careful with any unknown followers/friends/contacts. Because of my blog, and the nature of my husbands work, we were both used to 'fans' who we didn't know personally. And one of these people happened to be on my husbands Skype, and through that, was able to do horrible things. I know its tough to filter if you have many unknown Facebook followers, but please, please, please, delete anyone on your Skype who you do not completely trust! Also, cover up your laptop and cellphone cameras when they are not in use.
Anyways, moving on...I feel like I can honestly say I would not be surviving homeschooling if it weren't for other peoples blog, I feel like I owe it to the world to give back the little knowledge Ive gained long the way.
Hope you enjoy! Happy Homeschooling!
