We've Moved!

What a whirlwind journey we've been on these past few months since launching My Audio School! My email inbox has been flooded with requests for audio material from other time periods, and I was stunned to find my site on The Old Schoolhouse's Facebook Fan site and on the Tapestry of Grace twitter page, among other sites that I myself visit frequently!

In response to this overwhelming vote of support, my family has spent hundreds of man-hours this summer building the new and much improved, child-friendly My Audio School, which now contains content for the entire four year history cycle.

Due to the huge amount of work involved and the costs of providing a professional site that can handle high traffic, we are asking a small yearly subscription fee to unlock all of the content, though 25% of our content will still be available for free.

This original My Audio School site had a small amount of material, which was focused only on the Middle Ages through the Revolutionary War. Our new site has almost 500 items and climbing, including over 200 full-length classic audio books, radio theater relating to historical events or classical literature, and television and radio broadcasts from 20th century events.

What started out as a labor of love for my dyslexic son has become our family's labor of love for the entire homeschool community, and for the Lord Who gave us this vision. I feel a bit like Charlotte in Charlotte's Web, having completed my "magnum opus"....tired, but joyful.

I hope you'll visit us at the brand new My Audio School, and tell your friends about us.

I have your link in my sidebar on my homeschool blog. I will make the necessary changes. Are you going to keep this site available for free? If so, I'll leave this site under the "free stuff" and put your other site in the "inexpensive" list. Just let me know.

Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate your hard work in putting this site together. I look forward to subscribing to your new site and will most certainly pass the word along! I linked to this site on my blog, but will update the link to your new site with a post as well.

Oh my heavens! I can't tell you how excited I was to discover My Audio School this morning! I knew many of these old books are in the public domain but had no idea they were available auditorily (is that a word?)

For an auditory learner like my daughter and for a family like ours who appreciates and uses old books for homeschooling your site is absolutly invaluable. And your $15 fee absolutely reasonable and so worth it.

Also I must add that the art work you've included on your site is a joy to behold! It's a visual as well as auditory pleasure. I really can't thank you enough for all your hard work and am spreading the word already!

Sincerely,
Angie
