And the post with the most comments in 2013 was Normalising Disability. There were also lots of comments in Facebook groups – alas, this old crank ain’t got time to trawl through the wonderful Facebook groups to aggregate all the lovely comments and help I have received over the past year. So I’ll just give a big wave and thank you to Gifted Homescoolers Forum, and the GHF Writers Group, Highly Gifted+ NZ and Around the WorldHoagies Gifted Education Page and all the people who sent me private messages.

In 2013, there were 22 posts in total on Gluten-Free Mum: 12 focusing on homeschooling, 6 focused on gifted and 2e issues, 6 recipes and 3 random ramblings.

59% from the United States,

The rest of the world took up a whopping 1%.

You preferred to view it on Windows, iPhone, Mac, iPad, or Android using Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, or OS;FBSV. If anyone knows what the last is, please let me know!

And to polish it all off, I’d like to say a big thank you to all my readers. I hope you had a great year, and I look forward to our conversations in 2014.
