Yesterday, she asked if she could have her own blog.
What do you want to write about, I asked.
She wanted to talk about the pesky boys in her class.
Oh no no, you don’t go complaining about people or write nasty stuff about people. It’s the internet, baby. Anyone can read what you write.
Unless, I added, you make your blog private.
She raised her brows, then no one can read except myself?
I gave the affirmative reply.
Then what’s the point of having the blog if no one can read it? I might as well keep a diary book! She exclaimed in mock frustration.
She got the point. And understood well both the appeal and the responsibility of posting on the internet.
I’m more surprised by what a millennial she is- wanting people out there to read her blog! A scary thought too at how she was already wanting to connect with the online community, whatever dangers lurk out there.
