Kids and Blogging

Blogging is something that appeals to people.
I don't know exactly what it is that makes it so enjoyable, but it certainly is a lot of fun!

A year-and-a-half ago, one of my sons thought he would try his skills at blogging.  He did a pretty good job of it for a while.  He seems to get inspired to do it sporadically.  And since it's his project I let him take it at his own pace.

Here's his site : it's called Cliffside Notes
I gave him pretty much free reign about what and when to write. 

It has encouraged his typing skills, his editing skills and his general writing skills.  It has opened up the opportunity for us to discuss how to effectively communicate your message to an audience.  We talked about the idea that you can't assume anything about your audience.  

Who knows when his next post will be, but if I ever stop doing my blog compositions at midnight he might just see my example and get back on the wagon!

Do you have children who are blogging?  Post their links in the comments sections so we can check them out!

  1. Mine are too young to blog, but I hope that they will, even if it is private for their grandparents to read and keep up with their lives.
