A Blog Hop is a way to discover and follow blogs, as well as promote your own. Every month or two, we pose a topic, our blogging members discuss it, and we link to their posts. GHF blog hops include bloggers from around the world, all of them committed to articulating the unique concerns, needs, and perspectives of gifted/2e families, especially those who choose to homeschool their kids.
Please visit this month's Blog Hop contributors and leave a comment. Be part of the conversation!
