New Beginnings; New Chapters

I know this blog is just an infant and with time it will grow! I am looking forward to my new chapter here. Just sharing a bit about my thoughts on things. It will be much like my old blog, but with a more wider net.

I felt like with Catholic Christian Homeschooling so many of the things I wanted to talk about didn't fit the "nitch" of the blog. I am no longer homeschooling my son, my daughter is in the mist of her freshman year. Sure there will be days were I will hop on and share the special things that are going on, but much of our days are the same. We get up, we do school, we run errands. Sometimes we do special activities, but most of the days doesn't seem "blog" worth.

We have our curriculum - it's pretty boring. She does most of the work herself and check in with me when she needs help. I'm not actively doing projects like we did when the kids were younger.  I enjoy homeschooling, I am happy my daughter is homeschooled -- I wish the same for my son -- I truly do; but it's pretty boring life.

I got onto Facebook several years ago, because I co-founded a local homeschool co-op/group and that group needed me to be on Facebook to help promote it, get the word out about it.  Facebook ended up sucking up much of my internet time and Catholic Christian Homeschooling went on the very, very back burner.

I have tried over the last year to blog there to bring it back -- but found that it just wasn't there. Yes, I wanted to blog about homeschooling and share my day, but I wanted to branch out and share just general homeschooling help. I also wanted to share MORE -- more than just homeschooling: I wanted to share beyond what the old blog was tailored for ... So Nikki's Thoughts On was born.

Doing this meant me re-branding my current social media channels. I didn't want to close those channels, I just wanted them to reflex the direction I was heading. In doing so my good friend Tina from Being Made New noticed the re-branding and we started to talk. We decided that it we should take action on something we have been talking about for YEARS.  We decided to launch a blog together. That blog primary focus will be homeschooling. It will be sharing what we love, but from a mentor status. This is something that I am happy to announce too.  Ditto, She Wrote.

It like Nikki's Thoughts On is a very infant blog, but we have great plans!
