Finally OK with the Arts of Language Page

Hi Folks,

I think, maybe, just maybe, I’ve finally finished the Arts of Language Page.  You can find it here if you have some time to read it.  Grab a new cup of coffee first–it’s LONG!  I know, I know, English is my thing and I tend to get carried away with it, but there really is just SO much to say there.

I didn’t follow my own instruction to my students as I’ve been working on the page.  I wrote without an outline.  :-O Instead, I did more of a “stream of consciousness” thing and just kept writing.  In fact, I’ve been back to the page several times over the last couple of weeks adding even more to it.  Perhaps a few “go to top” links might be appropriate?  Maybe I should break the page up into its components?  I don’t know.  For now, I’m leaving it as it is.  If I don’t, I’ll never get anything written for the history areas (AKA, what’s often called Social Studies or Humanities in schools) or Sciences, not to mention all the fun non-core areas like art, music, foreign languages, home ec, vo-tech, etc, etc, etc.

You know what else I want to look into?  No, how could you know what’s bouncing around my brain?  I learned that my site isn’t mobile friendly and I have no idea how to change that.  I guess I’ll need to schedule some time for yet another call to tech support.  Thankfully, I chose wisely there, and they answer the phone 24/7.  I did, however discover that I could add to the Home page just by typing a new post!  I guess the blog thing will work this way.  I thought each post would end up on its own page, but I guess not.  Add another thing to that list to ask the tech guys.

Here’s another thing:  I want to figure out is how to insert pictures right onto the pages.  I don’t want to add too many, though, because I want RH to be a place that isn’t annoying.  I know I can’t stand it when websites take forever to load because of long running scripts.  I can’t be the only one who gets annoyed by all the ads all over the Internet these days either.  I just want a nice, useful, informative website.  Something that is evergreen that people come to associate with solid guidance.  How am I doing?  (Yeah, the comments are still turned off! I think.  Maybe.)

Blessings,

Chris

A New Beginning

Throughout the summer of 2018, I’ve been updating this website after letting it basically just sit here.  Currently, I’m working on content for the subject areas–both Core and non-Core academics.  It is my hope that you will find this site both useful and informative.  While I build, if there’s anything you need, send me an email at chris@reasonablehomeschooling.com. Enjoy!

Hello world!

Hi there!  Come look around the site while I’m in the process of building it.  I was supposed to work on it in the background but forgot to turn that on (go figure) —  so here it is, warts and all, totally under construction, and likely to change daily for a while.

I’m just learning how this all works so don’t be surprised if things aren’t perfect yet.  But, as the saying goes, when you want something done you ask the busy person and she makes it happen — even if that means slapping on the keys for a while until she figures out how to do it!

The above was written the day I officially went into business and set up this website nearly 5 years ago.  Up until this summer (2018), I have neglected it in favor of teaching my students.  Well, this summer that changed and I have been busily updating and changing all the pages, filling them with what I hope is useful content for you.  My goal is to finish this before the school term begins in earnest in the fall.  Once that happens, this page will serve as my blog page.  I’m going to commit to one post per month but really want to shoot for one post per week.  I’m looking forward to interacting with you!

Blessings,

Chris
