The Internet makes it easier than ever to share your opinions with the world. Lots of people chat online, post to forums or even have their own Web page. One of the more popular ways to express yourself online is through a blog, short for Web log. Today there are hundreds of millions of blogs online, and that number only keeps growing! With so many blogs out there, you might wonder what people are writing about. Many people write blogs about their personal experiences or use it to share interesting news articles, but a blog can be about anything. Some people even create blogs to share stories about their pets.
Blogs, like other Web sites, are not always kid-friendly. If you want to check out blogs made by other kids or start your own blog, check out a blogging site that’s designed just for kids. Try Imbee, http://imbee.com, or Students of the World at www.studentsoftheworld.info/sites/pages.php. If you want to start a blog, be sure to ask your parent's permission and review the safe surfing rules at www.4kids.org/safesurf.
