|Look out, he’s gone on line.|
You know how you remember your children’s first steps, the first time they went swimming, starting school and all the other landmarks?
Well, Boy Two had a bit moment this week – he started his first blog.
So far he shows no sign of losing interest and moving on to the next thing. In fact only this evening he was muttering: “I love my blog. Blogging’s great.”
I hope it’s only because it’s the first time he’s been positively encouraged to spend time on the computer at home.
However, I am very proud of him, and not just because of his blog. Once I’d shown him how it worked, he was off messing with templates and uploading pictures. Then I introduced him to PicMonkey and now his photos are ‘enhanced’ and cropped. He can do links and even managed a pun in one of his post headings. This has to be educational.
He’s even doing his own version of promoting his blog – nagging me to mention it on my blog.
For my part, I’m trying very hard to let him go his own way with it – as soon as I try to suggest that he does anything differently it might feel like school and put him off. Let’s see how long I can manage that…
Meantime, let me introduce A Blogging Boy.
