So, why this blog?

February10

Welcome to A2Z Homeschool: The Blog.

You are probably thinking: “Is Ann moving her site over to this domain?”

No, not exactly.

I’ll be using this blog site for new articles by me from this point on. If others wish to be contributing authors, I will add them on, or they may start their own blog elsewhere on this domain.

See you around.
