If the Magnate could be my future kid blogger, Patchy is my present kid blogger.
For the longest time, she has been asking bugging me to set up her blog. I’d just shrug it off. Yes, okay… I will… in summer.
The other day I was Google-talking with SexyMom. We were talking about our kids – her kids who were all (mostly) into blogging. She showed me 11-year-old Alan Jr.’s blog. And I thought, why not set up Patchy’s? It won’t take too long. And getting her into blogging this early will definitely benefit her. Her writing skills and grammar will be sharpened. Since she loves writing Dear Diary stuff, I’m sure she will love writing an online journal.
With much excitement, she and I worked last night setting up her Blogger blog, and searching for templates. Finally she found one that she was pleased with (though not too extremely). She also wrote a draft “About Me”.
This morning, VGood and I left for a classmate’s birthday party. I left Patchy to work on her introduction post. When I returned, I was surprised to see two posts on draft mode. She already was able to figure out how to insert pictures and hyperlinks. Kids really learn fast, and I won’t be surprised if she overtakes me in techie knowledge soon.
My daughter is now blogging at ~iPatch~. Please give her a warm welcome into the wonderful world of blog! 🙂
