Tom Simpson

My 10-year-old son has the same aspirations of writing and publishing a book. He's written quite a few creative stories, complete with illustrations, and bound the pages together with staples. He's wanted to start the self-promotion, so that he can sell his stories.

His self promotion consists of handwritten flyers, and some tape or tacks. He's wanted to hang them up around town, but I wouldn't let him.

Instead, I suggested a blog, which I installed for him and showed him how to use. He's written a couple things, there, but I still don't allow the blog to notify any update services.

I've thought about a service for children's blogs, but then I start running into the problems of privacy and disclosure with children. There's not a fool-proof way to stop them from including personal information.
