the world is not ready for this

So, I go into the kitchen, where the kids' computer is. Natalie is typing away. I take a look at the screen and there, right before my eyes, is the Blogger template.

No, I'm not giving you the URL.

There are now about three types of literacy out there: functional literacy, by which they mean that you can read routine forms you need to fill in. Second, there is now technical literacy. This means that you are literate, but only in a strictly utilitarian way. And then there is just plain literate, which is too much to expect of any random members of our population anymore.

Ya know, Mom, since there's no fights...er...baseball tonight, sounds like a wonderful time to help here set up her templates!

Please, please pleeeeese give us the URL.
Just this once.

hmm..wonder if she picked xanga..

I wouldn't give out the URL, either. For those amongst us who are nice, it would be fun to go see and with her well; Michele has some people come through here that would be more than happily abusive, though.

No need to expose the kid to that.

Yeah, keep the URL under wraps. Let her get to enjoy basic writing, then move on to advanced internet interaction, including 'whack-a-troll'

I'm curious about the description which puts Morrissey and Robert Smith to shame.

hey, if she's ever looking to talk to a blogger near her own age...
