Today, this blog hit a major milestone: 300 followers.
I am flattered and humbled. Three hundred people think what I am doing here is valuable and worthwhile. I never imagined, when I started this web site several years ago, that it would be so well-received.
In honor of this achievement, I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to my followers. Your decision to subscribe tells me that my work is helping you give your gifted child a better experience. And that’s why I do this. To help.
I receive no payment for my research and writing time. I accept neither advertising nor paid announcements. My only reward comes from knowing I’ve aided other parents like me in meeting the challenges inherent in raising gifted children.
Thank you for your support.
