Griffin's Amazing Blog

Griffin kept pestering me to add different things to this blog (put this video on there! and this picture of Indiana Jones!).  Since he seemed interested in the process, I asked him if he'd like to start his own blog.  He jumped on the idea.  He picked out a template he liked, a title and voila he became a blogger.  I gave him a short crash course in using blogger and he picked it up really fast. Once I get him logged in he is able to create a new post, add pictures and captions, he even knows how to tag his posts.  Today he figured out how to read comments and has been checking to see if anyone has commented on his posts every ten minutes.  Its incredible to see him do a Google Image search, drag the picture to our desktop and then create a post and upload the picture to blogger.  I've been doing the videos for him, but thats next on our list for him to learn.  He does source all the videos himself, usually from YouTube (I make him use YouTube for children so I don't have to worry too much about what kind of content pops up).  I can already see myself turning into that mom that goes, "Griffin, my computers doing something funny, can you come fix it plllllleeassse?"
