A Brief Blog Profile: Demand EUPHORIA

by Thomas Hynes


In case you were wondering, Demand EUPHORIA gets its name from a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. Here's the full quote: "That's the difference between me and the rest of the world! Happiness isn't good enough for me! I demand euphoria!" And that's pretty much the guiding principle behind this blog. Halfway is not acceptable. Good enough is not good enough. Vickie, the blog's author, sees time with her young children, aged 3 and 5, as the true purpose of life and the true source of happiness. And she demands to be present for every moment she can. 

On the blog, you'll read about ten ways to confuse a child.  You can also read about ten ways to be a kinder and gentler parent. Another thing you'll read about on Demand EUPHORIA is the story of home schooled children. Though, that's not how it's described here. Here it is called Unschooling.  It's not a home classroom recreated with bells and chalkboards and desks. It's the removal of traditional educational techniques and practices. The world is their classroom. This may sound radical to some. But with all due respect to Our Lady Star of the Sea (where I attended grade school), some times classrooms are actually terrible places to learn. Or to put it another way, exploring alternatives is probably not the worst idea.

To be honest, the lifestyle and choices highlighted on Demand EUPHORIA would be a lot easier to dismiss if it weren't for Vickie's sound reasoning and compassionate point of view. She strictly wants what's best for her children. Their happiness and well being come first. And that's simply not negotiable.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
