When it comes down to it, some of the best blogs in the world are blogs by kids. This is because there are so many creative and right-on bloggers out there, young people who know how to write and do it well.
One of KLTB’s favorite blogs by kids is They Call Me T. This is a well-written blog put together by ‘T’ who is a very creative and very articulate girl. It is basically a collection of musings and ideas, but they are put together in such a fun way that it makes it readable.
You’ll find a lot of book review stuff here too, which is sure to keep most kids interested. The girl really loves books, and the success of the blog is mainly due to her enthusiasm for reading.
Secret Doors is an altogether different type of blog, but as another exciting blog by kids it really shows how you can have a completely different outlook on life than most people your age.
It is essentially the writings of a young girl who is soon to go to college. She loves fashion and the majority of the content is focused on her modeling clothes, but there are also a lot of innermost thoughts coming to the surface. This means that you get to read really interesting stories that are punctuated by more ‘bland’ stuff focusing on fashion. It’s a great read, and generally positive. It also shows how the power of blogging can help young people express themselves.
Totally and Utterly is by a 13-year-old girl, and it is great fun. Nandie is your typical funny and weird teenager enjoying life. She goes through the details of what it is like to be a teenager (not always fun) and also injects it with a healthy dose of humor. This is a really fun blog, and we think that 13-year-old girls would benefit most from reading it, but so would other people, including parents of teens.
These blogs by kids perhaps best typify the fun kind of writing that is out there. Some of it is very personal, but they are all perfect examples of young people using blogs to express themselves. Take a look at them, and if you have anyone in your life that is in the same boat, then send them to these blogs. They’re great reads, and perfect examples of great blogs by kids.
