Dynamic homeschooolhowtos website
Tuesday, 29. April 2008 by Renee Ellison
We have transformed this website into a dynamic site that will better serve your needs. First, it is browser based, offering you greater flexibility and ease of use because you can do a keyword search of everything on the site. Second, we have improved our capability of offering you downloadable PDF files. And third, the site uses blogging rather than static fixed web pages—which connects us more closely with the world of Internet search engines. The end result of these three areas of improvement: we are moving us into a better level of communication with you.
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, a prominent magazine for homeschoolers, cites statistics gathered by The International Digital Publishing Forum, that “sales of digital books in the wholesale market more than tripled from 2005 to 2007. In late 2007, Amazon’s new electronic reader for books and newspapers sold out in a matter of hours. People are expecting information to be readily available via their computer, cell phone, PDA and other electronic devices.”
Ipswitch, a provider of file transfer software, recently reported that “the number of PDF documents indexed by Google™ is topping 100,000,000 [one hundred Million!]. PDF has quickly become the electronic equivalent of printed paper and ultimately the worldwide standard for sharing documents. That’s because PDF documents are compact, universally viewable, print the same as they do from their original application, and they’re not as susceptible to carrying computer viruses as other formats.”
A key benefit of this revamping of our website is digital delivery of the content you are finding here:
* Faster delivery—no matter where you are in the world.
* No shipping charges—free delivery of ebooks.
* Ability to store the files on your computer for you to retrieve at any time. This can reduce paper usage and be a means of uncluttering at least one aspect of your home.
* Faster ability to find specific content of interest. You can open a pdf file and do a keyword search to take you a specific section of Renee’s homeschool how-to’s.
Please send us your comments, so that we can continue to serve you better! We invite you to add your comments, once you’re registered on our site and are reading one of Renee’s blogs or a description of one of our homeschool how-to’s.
