Blogging Young

I just came across this list of Top 30 Under 21 blogger's list and found it quite interesting. Most of these guys write tech blogs or about internet and boy, they write it so well. Internet has brought so much change to everybody and today's kids know about computers at a very young age and you see the difference in them with so fresh thinking. This list was compiled by http://www.retireat21.com

This is especially good for kids/students who work while studying. Now instead of delivering pizzas or working in a dunkin store,where they earn $5 to $6 an hour, its cool to have their own blog and make the website earn for them. If you go through these sites, lots of those sites post their monthly income and that too breaking up all incomes (like how much from google adsense, how much from banners etc). I was amazed that some of them posted revenues uptp $600 to $700 bucks per month. This is really a good earning for a student and after the initial setup he just has to spend about an hour or so in writing something interesting that would get traffic into his site.

This also reminds me a video that I had seen few months back, when I had started learning jQuery and was looking for some good video tutorials. Imagine a 12 year old kid giving a tutorial for some 30+ live tech savvy audience and that too on one of the latest technology. If you don't believe on what I say watch it here. He is a amazing kid and I was really impressed. I started thinking about what I was doing at that age Embarassed. Now I know what Generation Gap means and I now understand how my Dad/Mom used to feel when I was talking about computers and what all it can do in mid-90s.
