When we write, it is best to add value for those reading them. Research is necessary and for this we have to read widely both in print media, in cyberspace and e-resources. This forced us to keep current with issues and in the process keep our mind active.

Some people use blog as a way to write a journal much like the paper-based journal. They share their digital pictures on-line so that their friends can view them. Some do share their emotional side of the experiences.
If your child is writing a blog, as parents you can read them to get a sense of how your child is coping with study and life in general. Writing a blog also sharpens the skill of your child in writing ability.
