This n That- Thursday Chat

It's been crazy busy around here...co-op is over for the semester (it was a blast, as always but I'm so glad!). TC is still going strong and my class is in the throes of writing lit reviews on poetry and gearing up for their research paper.
I've been getting up to speed with what it means to be a Reviewer for The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew. 2 words. Yipee!! and Oy Vey!! I'm on the uphill side of the learning curve, but it's going to be a great ride. I've already made new friends from around the country, am learning TONS more about blogging and SEO, have the opportunity to check out fantastic curriculum (first review premiering in the next couple of days!) and more. What's not to love?

With all of that, I am having yet another what do I do about this blog discussion with myself-
1. Start another blog that is totally focused on ed. and leave this one for family/ personal musings
2. Continue this blog and have ed/family stuff intermingled like it's been.
Thoughts?

Finally had time to catch up at the Hive and got in on a great discussion on management/getting things done. Below is list of books that came up. I'm starting with Getting Things Done . I'm thinking it will be like 7 Habits on Steroids. And frankly, I'm ready. It's not that we don't get things done. It's that we have so much more to get done. And while where we're at is o.k., I think it could be better....Here's the list. You'll probably gonna be hearing more about them ; )


Getting Things Done
Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard.
along with  10 Habits of Happy MomsHappiness Project, Happier at Home and Happiest Mom


How's life in your corner of the world?

I vote for intermixing the two. I think you would get more readers that way. If the people reading the general news didn't homeschool, it's easy to skip over. But, having both together gives an idea of what kind of family you are and if someone could imagine said curriculum working in their family. You are a very real person with a real family (i.e. not perfect) and I think that could only help when people are looking at your reviews.
