I encouraged my son to start blogging summer of last year. My goal was for him to practice his grammar and writing without hearing his usual, "Why do you always force me to study?" The idea of designing his own site and publishing his vacation pictures online was exciting for him. He used a free hosting service and it's still online up to now. From time to time, he still updates the site with new pictures and new stories.
Now he wants to create a new blog with a different theme.
