I have started working on my digital media project (writing books about technology for 6-9 year olds) and wow is it tough! I am trying to break down the concept of blogging. There are so many terms surrounding blogging that may not be familiar to children such as website and Internet. I am approaching the topic as if the reader has little to no background knowledge on the subject. I am thankful that I have a 7 and 9 year old at home to help me with this project. I thought that I would be able to complete the content of the books and the illustrations would take more time. I had no idea that the actual writing part would be as difficult and time consuming as it is. I want short and simple text but I want it to explain a big concept As I am writing, I am thinking about English as an additional language learners and I think that these books could benefit some of these students as well.
Is there a way to illustrate books online?
What types of examples of blogs should I include? So far I was thinking about cooking blogs, travel blogs, and blogs used by schools/classrooms.
