When I started getting serious about blogging a few months ago, my son was fascinated that people I personally don’t even know leave messages or comments in my blog. He finds it even more amusing that people who live half a world away from us get to read my post.
Seeing his fascination with our blog, I decided to encourage him to write in it. At first, I had no idea on how I could help him to start writing, as it wasn’t one of his hobbies. Eventually, I came up with a scheme on how he can write about topics that are familiar to him. Of course, I had to edit it, trying hard to be true to his intentions and his voice. Before publishing, I let him read it again for his approval.
To date, my son has a total of three posts in our blog. His first, Son Hates Camping, was a hit. I remember teasing him about a trip where we’re supposed to sleep inside a tent. He violently (well, not really) objected to the idea of camping and begged me not to go on a camping trip. I kept on laughing at him and asked him to write down a list on why he hates camping.
