Although she's always enjoyed pen-n-pencil learning, my daughter is actually enjoying this curriculum from +GrammarFlip.

At the middle school level, our kids are becoming more independent in their homeschool activities. This program is perfect for independent learning!

If you're homeschooling a middle or high school student, give this program a look. (You won't believe how affordable is!)

How to Achieve Balance in Your Life

Striking a balance isn't always easy.

- Some people work too much.
- Some play too much.
- Some don't spend enough time on hobbies.
- Some spend far too much time on hobbies.

We all have our things, right?

How do you find balance?

You could hire a life coach and spend months trying to work it all out. It's a viable option.

But what if you could do it in a month without spending a fortune?

Well, you can.

I've begun a 28-day course that is affordable and effective. Through daily activities, you will learn to bring balance and greater happiness back to your life.

If you have a website or blog, you need G+. Your posts here are indexed by Google. What better reason could you need to get over here and post!

Facebook is tops for ROI, it's true. But G+ is better for making the right connections in your field, getting your site indexed, and more.

5 Surprising Reasons to Reconsider Google+ for Marketing
But the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT at the end of the post: Buffer now supports Personal Google+ Profiles!

Most of us here on Google+ know the value, right? Aside from the SEO benefits, we know just how engaging the community can be if you spend the time to engage first. So most of this article, for us Google+ veterans, is common knowledge.

But then at the end of the post they announce that +Buffer now supports connecting and posting to Google+ profiles! What a glorious day! In fact, I'm actually publishing this post using my Buffer account.

Not only does this mean you can share to your Google+ profile from anywhere on the web (using the Buffer Browser Extension) but it also means if you're a Buffer for Business customer, you get the full benefit of Analytics!!!

So, who all is rushing to connect their profiles?

The Week We Experienced Beatlemania and I Dyed My Hair Blue

Beatlemania is alive and well. At least it is in my house.

No, I'm not kidding.

My daughters are serious Beatle fangirls who now call themselves Beatlemaniacs. This week we went to see the new Beatles documentary. It was an excellent movie, but the experience was so much more than a movie.

My daughters will never forget this day - particularly my youngest daughter. After the movie ended, she was given something she'll cherish for years to come, making this a most memorial day in her young life.

Oh, and I dyed my hair blue.

Notebooking for Reluctant Readers

Today, guest post writer +Kaylene Outnumbered has shared her experience of using with her son, a reluctant writer.

Children need to write, but not all children enjoy writing. Still, writing helps with retention. Notebooking encourages even the most reluctant of writers. I have kids with dysgraphia, and even they use notebooking easily.
