About

John EdelsonHello, my name is John and this is one of my blogs. I post a variety of posts here from  semi-private ruminations on the nature of education or homeschooling to the explicitly promotional. For instance, we recently created a new site about books about homeschoolers and I announced it here.

I am the founder and president of a small online educational company that has a number of services and websites: Time4Learning.com, Time4Writing.com (web-based homeschool writing classes), SpellingCity.com, Vocabulary LearningEducational Games for Students, andScience4Us.com.  There are, or will be, other sites involved so when I’m supporting a site here you can assume it is promotional in nature or something that we have created or another company that we are working with.

With that disclosure said, let me assure you that I take my services and promotion of them very seriously. I try to position the services realistically so that customers can make informed decisions and that they will be satisfied happy customers, not embittered ones who are asking for their money-back (a guarantee that most of our services provide) or bad-mouthing us.

I hope you find this disclosure useful and clear.
