Those of you who visit me at TomWoods.com, as opposed to following me only on social media, etc., are part of my inner circle. So I’m going to fill you in on my situation.
I am fortunate to be able to devote myself to work I thoroughly enjoy, and in which I deeply believe. I try not to take this situation for granted.
Another thing I thoroughly enjoy is fatherhood. I have four children I thoroughly enjoy spending time with, and that time is non-negotiable.
Right now I am engaged in an enormous project, but I think possibly the most important work I have done. I am preparing courses for the Ron Paul homeschool curriculum. At the moment I am working on Western Civilization I, a year-long course. I am breaking my back to make it the very best, most interesting, and most information-packed course I possibly can.
Each course involves 180 video lessons: 36 weeks, five lessons per week. That is an incredible undertaking, even for a relatively efficient person, which I think I am.
This first course needs to be ready to go by mid-August, and by September 2 at the absolute latest. I’ll have a bit more breathing room with future courses, though things will be pretty busy until it’s all finished.
Right now this is consuming most of my time. On top of this, I maintain LibertyClassroom.com (which I consider to be nearly as worthy a project), I do some private-sector consulting, I travel and speak, and I try to blog as much as I can.
But something has to give. I want to keep up this blog, but if I am to do so I will need your help — at least for the next few months. If you happen to come across an interesting link — and it need not always be about Bernanke; it can be unusual and off the wall — or a video worth watching, or whatever, I’d be grateful if you sent it along. (If you would like to be acknowledged, please say so; otherwise I’ll assume you prefer to remain anonymous.) That takes half the work out of blogging, and it would help me across the chasm that stands between me and September 2.
Thank you very much!
