I was surprised this morning, while pouring a cup of coffee, to see a segment on the Today show about blogging. Anyone catch it? Matt Lauer interviewed a psychologist about teenage blogging. She said that teenagers love this mechanism and find that it helps them talk to their peers in whole new ways and get ideas about how to handle tough times in their lives. She said teens report that it is very different than chat rooms where conversations take place – these seem to be more from the heart.
I wonder if any of you who blog regularly find that it helps you handle tough times, or gives you that support that doesn’t come easily from other places. This experience is new for me, but some of you who have commented seem to make a practice of this blogging stuff!
