A Link Up: I am going to say something, and I don't want you to take it the wrong way. I hate Word Press. I have tried on several occasions to use Word Press blogs, even taught a blogging class using a Word Press platform. They are about as easy to use, as Millard Fillmore is easy to rate as one of the top 3 presidents ever. No offense to Millard Fillmore, in fact more on him tomorrow.
But back to my disdain for all things Word Press. The latest debacle came a few months ago, when I tried to start a vlog, called Dave Out Loud. I had a Word Press account with the nickname DaveOutLoud, so I thought using Word Press might be a good idea.
Big Mistake. Huge.
It took me almost an hour every time I posted to just put a video from my You Tube account on the blog. Yesterday, I finally stopped the madnes, and started a Dave Out Loud Vlog here at Blogger.
Here is yesterday's innuagral post. In the next few weeks I will be rerunning the videos I posted at the previous platform. Which, as it turns out, won't take an hour for all 8 episodes, let alone 1.
A Look Ahead: Tomorrow, I will be posting about a special project we will be doing at school this year regarding American Presidential History. This is one of the reasons, I had Millard Fillmore on the brain earlier. Not exactly what else I will be blogging about this week. It seems like it will be a rather eventful week, so I should have plenty of material.

Today's category: Best Homeschool Vlog
One reason why I started a vlog is to compete in this category next year. This year's winner, Women Living Well does so much more than vlog. Here is a sample post with an encouraging video about involving your family in your misistry.
