Childhood blogging After my posts

Childhood blogging

After my posts on my kids over the past couple of days this piece on childhood blogging makes sense...

What observational talents would benefit from this daily record. In addition to critical thinking, reading and writing skills, what other skills would necessarily be enhanced? Would the daily record and forced verbalization of thoughts and ideas enhance any other talents? What types of relationships would we develop with the other people who would undoubtedly read and respond to this weblog? Like piano lessons, would the we despise the practice at the time, only later discovering what a beautiful skill we have developed?
