My Kid’s College Choice is One Year Old!

Published by Wendy Nelson on

BalloonsI hit a milestone this week with My Kid’s College Choice.  It was on August 26, 2012 that I wrote my first Welcome post.  The site has come a long way in the past year, especially for someone who had no prior website experience!  First, I want to take a few minutes to celebrate the success of the site so far in helping parents through the college choice process.  Then, I want to tell you all the great things I have planned for the next year!

Starting this website has also given me the opportunity to write articles for college parents on the college blog.  You can find links to my recent articles here:  My Outside Articles.

Future Plans for My Kid’s College Choice

Things I currently have in the works include:

  • Finishing the list of colleges offering full-ride and full-tuition scholarships I referred to in Can My Kid Get a Full-Ride Scholarship?
  • A new and improved college search spreadsheet that allows you to keep track of everything you need during the college search and college application process
  • A “Start Here” page to take parents on the journey through the college choice process
  • Continuing to update the layout and format of the site to provide more value to site visitors

Thank you for making my site a part of your college choice journey!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment.  I would love to have your feedback!  Tell me what you like best about the site and tell me what you would like to see more information on.
