How hasn't anyone mentioned http://childhoodflames.blogspot.com/?! Or maybe somebody already has and I just missed it... oops. Oh well, her blog is worthy of multiple mentions.

Also, http://burnthesebones.wordpress.com/ is pretty interesting. The writer is this incredibly stylish girl who attends Eugene Lang College in New York City. She's pretty shy about posting her own looks, but her commentary is great.

^I think she's an amazing girl, but I don't follow her blog. Imo children should not be allowed to write blogs like that. If she had a passion for fashion, her parents could encourage her to participate in public forums like this one, where she wouldn't be the central voice. You need a very thick skin to write a fashion/personal style blog, and I don't think 12 year olds should be submitted to that. Even high schoolers, although I'm more open-minded about that. (There are security/privacy issues involved as well, but that goes for all p-s bloggers, not just a young girl.)

^I just googled this girl and I'm kind of disturbed by it to be honest. At 13 I think I was still in cardigans that had bears on them.

The only blog I really like is Seaofshoes

Yeah I don't like the Tavi one either, it just doesn't seem like a 13 year olds work and I think she should spend her time like a normal 13 year old, there splenty of time for blogging etc. when older.

I can see your point but honestly you have to have a thick skin in pretty much any environment these days, inevitably.
At 13 I remember being teased and taunted in all sorts of manners in both junior high school and high school (especially), whether it was from being different and experimenting through looks or having a more serious and matronly personality, I just learned to understand their petty behavior and pay no real heed to their comments.
I'm sure Tavi is a pretty strong girl, especially seeing how eccentrically she dresses in comparison to the norm of her age, I'm sure she gets some harsh words here and there outside of the blogosphere as well. (Although I rarely see hurtful comments on her blog... if ever. If anything they are admirable and exalting.)

Since I am often busy, I don't have much time on the Internet so I visit sites, blogs et cetera that I really enjoy. This is one blog that I keep going back to...

http://fashionbombdaily.com/

Hope you all will enjoy it too.

The comment section is probably heavily monitored (possibly before being read by Tavi) and edited by now. She used to get some nasty comments, even stopped blogging for a while. I don't have to tell you how much nastiness there is online, she is not exempt from it just because she's young and adorable.

I had an unhappy junior high/high school experience as well, but making your voice and image accessible to anyone on the planet with an internet connection is a whole 'nother ballpark. I don't approve of it, for multiple and often contradictory reasons. (I'm not sure we're allowed to criticise blogs on this thread, so I'll stop.) Like I said, there are other outlets to write about fashion or display your outfits without being the central voice. I'm not criticising Tavi, but rather her parents for encouraging her to blog in such a format.

It's fine if people don't like her blog, I can't really say I'm a fan myself, however, I don't really like the frequent, "...a 12 [or finally, 13, now] year old couldn't have written that!" comments people have in regards to her writing style and ability.

There always are exceptions, and I'm sure we've all seen child prodigies, or kids with unique gifts, and I wouldn't doubt Tavi's ability or style of writing, just because she's young. I mean, at her age, I had already picked up a national writing award, and had my work published, and put in the Library of Congress... I truly don't mean to boast when I say that, I simply trying to say that it's more than possible for someone young to have a skill in something that will make them seem beyond their years. When I was 12, people who only knew me through my writing always thought I was like 30 or something!

Plus, from Tavi's sense of style, we can see that she's probably not your average 13 year old, and so, it seems a bit pointless to compare her to "normal" thirteen-year-olds (and as far as I know, it is normal for a thirteen year old to have a blog or spend time on the internet, they all seem to be doing it, really...at least the thirteen-year-olds I know are).

I think the New York Times or some other interview with Tavi and her parents, a while back, revealed that her parents didn't even know about her blog until the press starting contacting Tavi, so, it's not like her parents said, "Honey, why don't you go start your own blog or something?"

As far as nasty comments, she seems to have more than enough positive ones to soothe the bite of any nasty comments. Not to sound cruel, but I hope she's being exposed to some criticism, because with all the praise she receives, I'd be a bit worried about her staying grounded. And I know so many kids who think they're all that, and better than everyone else, because people like their parents have always shielded them from any criticism. And then they grow up, and enter the real world, and can't handle the dog-eat-dog-ness of it all, because they were never exposed to any nastiness growing up.

Edit: Oops, sorry, didn't mean for this post to end up so long. Was just a subject I had much to say about.
