I’ve been reading about tweens setting up blogs and about one blog about politics set up by someone called Maelo Manning, aged eleven. I know. That’s exactly what I thought. How can anyone aged eleven be in a position to write anything meaningful about politics. However, rather than jump to a conclusion I had a look (libdemchildblogspot) and guess what? It’s not bad at all.
Some stats? I’m glad you asked. According to OfCom, 2% of kids aged 8-11 have set up their own blog and almost 20% would like to do so.
