Aliya got a blog

Aliya has been using the Internet for a while now, normally for browsing and a bit of online games. A few months ago she started asking though: “How do you make a website?”

After searching a bit, and weighing whether I should host her site and so on, I decided instead to teach her to blog. She made her first post just now, I helped a bit as a spellchecker (I though wordpress.com has one… I guess it will be a paid feature 😉 ).

I also set up her email using GMail, with Google Talk as a notifier and maybe chat.

They are not quite there yet for a primary school kid, but close enough to be easy to use I guess. We’ll see how it goes.
