So yesterday I had to convert my personal Facebook page into a Public Figure page.
This means SOMETHING. I must meditate on the deeper implications.
But the really shallow, immediate, fun implication is that you can all hit “Like” and I can see the number of people who “like” me increase! It’s like junior high! With a counter!
You should all do it. Now.
They like me! They really like me!
It might take me a while to get around to sorting out the deeper implications…

Sorry you had to convert your personal page to a public one. I’m glad, though, that we have a public space to support you.
I have liked you & The Well Trained Mind since I stumbled upon it in fall of ’99. Your positive impact on my family’s life has been uplifting. Just a few more years of the hs’ing journey for me but I’m grateful that you and Jessie helped guide us along the way.
Yes–I liked you on FB too. I am so so sorry that you are going through this too but you are so handling with grace and dignity.
If I had a facebook page, I’d “like” you. Alas, I barely function at all in cyber world and have not embraced facebook, twiiter (who knows what that is), etc.
Just so you know, I do like ya!
We really do like you, Susan : )
Thank you for being who you are, and for all of the things you do that make it possible for countless homeschooling families to provide a classical education for their children.
I don’t use Facebook, but yes…I like you!
Now it is counter + 1 🙂
I am a part of a classical Christian homeschooling group in my town, where some members have raised issues. I had no idea you were so controversial, which clearly means (to me) that you are on to something!
I appreciate your objectivity and the way you treat history in an inclusive, rather than exclusive, manner. Take heart in knowing there is a place for people who are moderate, academic, AND faithful in the world of Christian homeschooling. I am telling that to myself as I navigate its waters…
(And I didn’t just do it for the heck of it – I really DO like you! Ha! Ha!)
Susan, I am very thankful for your publications and perspectives on homeschooling. We are from a very religiously diverse family, and I appreciate being able to use your texts which present a broader world view than most other homeschooling texts. Also, the primary reason we Homeschool is we want our children to be able to read and write and not merely color the correct bubble on a multiple choice test. I would like to attend one of your lectures at a conference, but I am dissuaded by all of the other ‘Christian’ offerings. Yes, I am a Christian, but I would like to attend an educational conference and not a religious/political one.
Please continue creating these wonderful homeschooling texts. We look forward to purchasing them each new school year. Good Luck to you, and maybe I will meet you one of your lectures one day. (I apologize for grammar/spelling mistakes. It is so hard to type on an iPad because it tries to anticipate what you want to type and usually does that erroneously).
I am so glad that Junior High did not have a counter!
