Hello there, my name is Susan.

So you want to know a little bit about me?

I've spent the last 25 years as the mother of homeschoolers,
teaching my kids to be self-motivated, independent learners.
And I practiced what I preached by continuously learning
new skills and writing every day.

I started blogging around 2006 about my experiences as a homeschool parent with a simple Wordpress.com website. It was a convenient way for me to share my ideas and questions with other parents. That website evolved over the years, with many experiments in topics, platforms, and voice. The latest version can be found at Every Day of Education.

My kids have graduated, but I continue to write about things that interest me. If you want to be part of a conversation about books and movies, visit me at Wide Open Stories.

Along the way I became interested in the mechanics of blogging; learning new platforms, making my own graphics, interacting on social media. Sometimes I use that experience to help others launch their websites with Squarespace, like SteveDonoghue.com & Open Letters Review
