TOS Crew and first impressions....

Sometimes I seriously wonder why things happen the way they do.  You may remember (if not, read it here) that I applied to be a reviewer for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.  

I have been so looking forward to this opportunity.  I see it as a chance to combine two things I love... writing and homeschooling.

Unfortunately, for me, someone hacked my old yahoo email address right before the TOS Crew tried to contact me to let me know that I was a new crew member.  Even though I promptly changed my email address, it seems like so many emails have been lost in cyberspace... including, of course, the emails from TOS.

I'm afraid that the TOS Crew has had second thoughts about choosing me to be on the Crew.  It is said that first impressions are most important.  It really stinks that this is the Crew's first impression of me.

It seems like this has been all uphill... even to the point that the first post I wrote tonight got erased.  Seriously!  I'm wondering why.... the meantime, I can't wait to start reviewing and writing and hopefully changing any negative first impressions....


  1. Wow, sorry to hear about that! It stinks that there are actually people in this world that are so dishonest and downright mean to hack in the first place.
    I hope that your reviews replace that first impression (I believe in second chances- how many of us would be DOOMED otherwise?).
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope that you have a great day.

  2. Hi, I'm sorry you had so much trouble getting started on the TOS Crew. Put all that behind you now , I'm sure you are in for a great year. Looking forward to getting to know you and work with you on the mini-crew.

  3. I'm so sorry your old email address was hacked. That is extremely frustrating, but I'm glad that we were able to connect.

    Try to put all that behind you and move on to a wonderful new crew year.

  4. How exciting for you, (referring to becoming a crew member, not getting hacked! lol) Will you be reviewing here or starting a new blog?


Thank you for your kind words!
