Yeah, I ask myself frequently what the purpose of my blog is. My first entry addressed this question. Quite frankly, I still don't know the answer to the question.

Wow, what a coincidence! My 8th grader just created her first blog last night and she already has two entries. I haven't asked her yet if I could read it but my husband and I are encouraging her to write instead of talk on the telephone and IM. One of my jobs today was to find blogs with teenage authors to show her the different creative styles/options she has. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Yes, I have read some college blogs and they have their own little cliques just like in school. It is hard to penetrate their world if you do not belong to that blogging clique, but it is quite interesting to see these young people expressing themselves. gurl

trey: a link for teenage blogging:

Is that the article which mentioned the Xanga blog service several times? I wasn't able to link into it.

Anyhow, my 2 cents, blogging can be helpful, valuable, or a total waste of time. I think it's a creative expression and as long as the owner/author/writer is happy, that's what matters. However, I started at Xanga and found it to be like a den of hate and cliques...not a great experience. Very odd place. Typepad and MT are great because it feels open and healthier.

Great post :-)

Oh, my... whatever gets them interesting in writing is wonderful...get them to write! But then think?... Well, but writing is important.
