AO's Acceptable Use License

Announcements/RE: AO's Acceptable Use License
What I did on my blog, is post my Canadian changes... so I'd put a link to the AO year, then say we took out this book and that book, and added this and that one. Similar with my schedules.... just the changes...

Other areas of the blog I might mention an AO book here and there, but more like... 'Delta is sure loving Robin Hood, he is out looking for the sheriff in his play'....
AO - Canadian Style - Maplehill Academy
Delta 13-yr6; Echo 10-yr4; Foxtrot 8-yr3; Golf 6-yr1

Brandy, that link didn't work for me.

So basically, "Freely ye have received, freely give.". :). But give of your own labor, not someone else's. About right?

Yes, about right. But I would add, give to us. We have a thriving AO community who can benefit from the labor right here.

Okay, I think I understand. I will probably model my post about my younger two sons on Brandy's post, actually. But my eldest son's might get a bit complicated for that, since I'm relying on three different pages (year 5, 6 and pre-7). I really do want to add more people to the AO boat. (I'm even more excited about this after my too-fast read of Norms & Nobility. AO is right on the mark.)

I will probably be mentioning more books when I post how things actually went. I see other homeschoolers, myself included, feeling inadequate because 'everyone else' does ABC and XYZ and everything in between. At the same time, I know I am guilty of posting our plans, but not a realistic picture of what got done and how it went. I'm committing to posting a lot more honestly about what we DID, and a lot less about what we could do.

Is there an accepted way to have more people use AO's affiliate links? I think in the past one could run into trouble by saying "click my links", but I can't remember if that was Amazon or Google Ads. I'd love to direct people to using AO's links.

Off to steal Brandy's button, in case the kids let me alone long enough for me to figure out how to upload & add it to my sidebar.

I love reading "what we didn't do" posts, Amy!
