Student blogging December 27, 2005

Our student journal/blogging is going OK. One of the top students in terms of tech is a girl who seems more mature, and sort of outside of the ‘popular’ circle. In one of the blogs referrer logs, I noticed that one of them came from her Xanga journal. I poked around it and found out one of her interests is ‘cutting’. This is where someone deliberately cuts themselves. As I poked around more, I found out this is a relatively popular topic among adolescents.

There are communities founded around this area of interest, with many 11,12 and 13 year old kids belonging to them. Wonder how many parents even have a clue this is what their kids are putting up on the Internet.
