It’s crazy hard to believe this, but 10 years ago (February 8, 2010), I published the very first post here on Simple Homeschool!
Yep, this blog has officially reached double-digits!! Does anyone else remember when it looked like this?
In that 10 years, 15 million pageviews have been seen by readers (I almost broke Google Analytics just trying to figure that out!) Over 1,800 posts have been published, many of them by this stellar group of women (& dear friends) who helped this blog grow with their inspirational words.
I have written four books in the past 10 years as well, starting with the very first that also released 10 years ago, Steady Days!
This weekend I’ve put together a special version of weekend links for you, sharing a few highlights from the past decade. Enjoy!
Weekend homeschool links:
