Last week, I posted about my students using their iPads to blog using Kid Blog and I shared a writing sample from Jayde. She shared that she wanted to write a new blog for girls. She included a few topics that she would like to blog about. What strikes me about this young writer (besides the fact that she is 6 years old) is that she already has a basic understanding of her niche. Pro blogger states that many writers ask what to blog about rather than how.It further states that niche blogging appeals to readers.
I interviewed Jayde about her blogging ideas. Here is an excerpt of that interview:
Me: “Jayde, tell me what you like about blogging.”
Jayde: ” I like writing about things I like and I like to read what other people write. ”
Me: “What made you want to write a blog for girls?”
Jayde: “I like dolls and rainbows and I like cheerleading. I have friends who like those things too. I think other girls like them too.”
Me: “How do you decide what to write about?”
Jayde: “I just think of things I like and what my friends like. It’s easy.”
There it is folks…Jayde knows what it’s all about. French-Cuban author Anais Nin says, “My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” It inspires me to know that Jayde and the other students in my class are busy 5 and 6 year olds living and writing what they know.
What inspires you?

I love it! What a great “interview”!
Thanks Kim. She handled it like a pro!
I’m quite sure Little Miss Jayde finds further inspiration in her teacher, Mrs. Kristi Woods Meeuwse! What a wonderful blessing to have a teacher who not only pays attention to her students gifts, but also nurtures and cultivates them! Jayde and Kristi, You both ROCK!
*blushing* Thank you…as you know it’s a passion. Glad you are in my cheering section!
Jayde has very cute ideas. I’d love to see what she has to say about Rainbows! Good to see your innovations so close to Beaufort.
Thanks for stopping by! Jayde definitely knows what she likes. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind!
People who not only come up with great ideas, but act on them, inspire me!
Thanks Angie…what’s great is watching these children inspire each other.
Kristi, I love the idea of your student’s blogging. Children can do so much when we give them opportunity and support.
Watching their enthusiasm and excitement makes it all worth it!
