Youngest blogger in Santa Fe?

My 7-year-old daughter wants to start a blog. Yes, really.  She writes long stories for her sisters and friends already (she’s the one who started reading when she was 3) so I know she’s serious.

She’s has had a g-mail account for a long time, so setting up a blog for her on Blogger will be easy. I’m just not sure about safety issues. I think they have a feature where the blog can be kept private, so friends and family can read it but not the entire population of the World Wide Web, but I’ll have to check.

I knew I wouldn’t be the only writer and blogger in the family forever.  I just didn’t think it would happen so soon.

    Yes, they do have that option. You create the blog, hit “start blogging,” click the “settings” tab, “Permissions” and choose the setting under “blog readers.”

    It still sometimes shows up on google search, but when someone clicks on that link it won’t load the page– you can make it so search engines won’t find it by going under the “basic” tab under settings.
