9 Musings for Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I've been so busy attending conventions and conferences that I've been slacking off on posting about them! This past weekend was Bloggy Boot Camp in Boston and it was phenomenal!  I plan to report on some of what I learned tomorrow, using a Top Ten Tuesday to share blogging tips with you.  I learned so much and will be processing it all for quite awhile.  It truly was a boot camp for the blogger! Highly recommended.

2. My homeschool and bloggy buddy, Terri, was the one who dragged convinced me to attend with her, and I'm so glad she did! Crowds of people I don't know is otherwise known as a nightmare for me and this is something I never would have done on my own.  I was concerned that they have assigned seating for the first half of the day and rotate tables for each session.  If you have any type of social anxiety (I do!), this is enough to cause heart palpitations.  It was so well done though, that I never felt too uncomfortable.  If I happened upon a less than friendly table, the session started quickly enough and then we swapped tables and I was never left wishing I could crawl under the table and melt away into the floor.

4. The homeschool convention I attended the previous weekend was not quite as fabulous and that may be why I've been slow in sharing.  I did learn a few things you may like and I may as well share my concerns with you, perhaps you'll have some insight for me. Someday the homeschool con post shall come, today is not that day.

5. I just found out about iTunesU.  It really deserves its own post, and this has become a list of items that deserve their own post, but in the meantime check it out for yourself.  You can access college courses on iTunes, for free!

6. We're currently reviewing Diana Waring's Romans, Reformers, Revolutionaries and are loving it!  Can't wait to share with you all next month. 

7. I really want to write a real post but am just too stinkin' tired.  This is not what I learned at Bloggy Boot Camp. I am not the poster child for immediately utilizing what you've learned.  I'm the poster child for drinking coffee and reading a review book until I doze off in my chair, at least that's the plan. 

8. I need to shut up before I reach number ten, as tomorrow is Top Ten Tuesday and this is Miscellany Monday.  I also have the ABC's of Homeschooling tomorrow.  Hmm, maybe I like my memes a bit too much? Nah.

9. I have a turkey in the oven.  Thought you should know.

So wish I could have been at Bloggy Bootcamp- it was my middle son's birthday, though.

I love the graphic in your header- completely cracked me up!

I look forward to your New Blog tips!

Just reading about the convenntion made it hard to breath...LOL. I have homeschooled (and blogged) 10-11 years and have NEVER been to a convention- because socialness gives me anxieties!

yay You for going!

Hi Lori. Thanks for stopping by Just One Donna. I agree, there was a lot to absorb from Bloggy Boot Camp. I look forward to seeing your post on it. I haven't decided whether or not to write one. I'll noodle on it a bit.
