The Butterfly Flutters By

LaurenI'd like to introduce you to Lauren's new blog, The Butterfly Flutters By.

My philosophy is that the best way to learn is to do. What better way for her to learn about IT than to give it a try? She is already very good (for her age = 9) with MS PowerPoint and Word, IM and email. I introduced her to the basics of HTML and Dreamweaver and she seemed to be doing quite well. Emily started to teach herself HTML at a similar age too. So, when Lauren asked if she could write a blog, I agreed, as long as I have full administrative control.

The blog is administrated by me and I will be checking every post for appropriateness before publication. I will also control any settings and the template. Nevertheless, the content of the blog will be Lauren's (subject to my checks).

You may want to pop in now and again to read her take on life.

What a wonderful idea. Lauren will definitely develop more than IT skills when doing it.

Your post reminds me of a time I asked my niece what she was going to do for my sister on Mother's day. She said she was putting together a power point presentation!

How times have changed.

Q marvels, and has sent a post to the Butterfly. He won't be joining Ren's niece in doing Mothering Sunday power points as he is really a luddite though! (Yes, I know that I am using a computer, but that helps create stimulating internal conflict...)

Hi! I stumbled across your blog by accident and I have to say I'm in love with it!

It's extremely interesting to see our culture and it's little idiosycracies examined by a neutral observer.

I see it's been over a year, but let me offer a belated "Welcome to the US!"

I'm waiting for an updated blog!! I guess you guys must be really busy or ill!!
Hope you're well anyway.

Sorry about that. I've been aware of the lack of blogging lately. My excuse is that I have indeed been really busy.
