A guest post by my 8 year-old son Alex, who loves movies, thinks kids should give ratings & just wants to blog.
Just one post
A lot of people have blogs. But most people don’t.
I think you should. Even if you only have one post in you.
Having a blog is pretty daunting, especially if you don’t like blank paper and are the sort of person that hates falling behind. I can imagine that the idea of posting 50 or 300 times a year is a little bit nuts for many people.
But what if there’s just one thing you need to say, but you can say it clearly and well and in a way that hasn’t been said before? What if you’ve got one great blog post inside of you, and, even better, you’re willing to update that post as you learn more and gain more insight?
An entire post about a certain kind of fossil. Or the misuse of a certain word. Or about a key difference between two kinds of bluetooth…
Not only does Alex love movies, but he wants to Produce them one day, despite the fact that none of us are all too clear on what that actually means. Nonetheless, he felt left out by Sara having edu.cyn.in (see Kicking off social software in Sara’s elementary school) to play in and really wanted to get something off his chest.
In the interest of full-disclosure, Sara says she only typed it for him and helped switch a word, or, two around. I helped with the WordPress formatting. Aside from that, the content is all Alex’s. Here is Alex’s guest blog post…
I guess you all know the story Alice in Wonderland. But maybe you didn’t know that Tim Burton and Disney invite you to their new sequel to Alice in Wonderland. The new sequel of Alice in Wonderland is very different from the old version. Instead of following the White Rabbit, Alice’s boyfriend asks her to marry him. Worried, Alice runs off into the woods and falls into a rabbit hole. in the rabbit hole, she sees a bottle that has a label reading ‘Drink Me’ but when she drinks it, she shrinks. Then she opens a door that leads her to the mysterious and mad world of Wonderland. There she finds The Mad Hatter, the Chester Cat and worst of them all, the red Queen. The Mad Hatter recognizes Alice for she has been here before as a child, everyone else in Wonderland recognizes Alice. The Mad Hatter calls out Alice’s name, but his rabbit friend does not believe that it is really her. The Mad Hatter recalls that since Alice was gone, the red Queen took over Wonderland. Alice tries to help The Mad Hatter.
