Comments are welcome. I moderate them to prevent the spread of spam and hate and tangential stuff. If I object to something you commented, I’ll email you (unless there’s swearing – that trash talk lands the comment in the trash or if you bash gifted kids or teachers) so you can edit yourself if you like.
If you’re a spammer, I don’t do that because I don’t want to confirm I exist. If your comment disagrees with me, that’s fine, but be cool about it. It is, in the end, my site where I share my views and allow others to share theirs within reason. Comments need to be related to what we’re talking about. Have a point – don’t just be a troll – and we’ll be fine!
The Federal Trade Commission has rules about websites (you can cure insomnia by reading it here). This disclosure page is so I make sure to follow all the rules. I used to be an English teacher, so I love rules!
I have this website to share ideas about good thinking and education, with particular emphasis on giftedness.
I have never had anyone give me anything free to write about yet, but if I did, I’d tell you in the post. Those of you who know me, know that I love to give my opinion, and even if someone gives me something for free, I will not hesitate to give you my honest opinion.
I finally figured out how to set up affliliate links, and if you buy something I may be able to get a small percentage of any sales, but it will never cost you any more money. I am required to tell you this exact wording: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.” Again, I’d only do that for stuff that’s really good and useful.
This website is a built with wordpress.org. The framework is Genesis from StudioPress, and the theme is Epik. I pay dreamhost for webhosting, and I bought the domain from them, too. I bought the domain lisavangemert.com, which re-routes here, from network solutions. My husband gives me lots of free IT support, and I do the rest myself. (none of these links is affiliate)
