In the modern digital age there is no more valuable method of self-expression than the Blog. The Internet has become the source of informational revolution, a place where ideas and dreams collide, forming a unique opportunity to expose the truth of who we as humans are to each other. A completely new and unique idea, The Kizzog, introduces children to this powerful medium. The Kizzog offers the opportunity to communicate and interact in the digital age of now and beyond. Below are 50 reasons YOUR child should have, and will benefit from a Kizzog Kids Blog.

1) The Traditional Scrapbook Is Dead

In our world, digital is King. The traditional scrapbook has had its time, but now we are moving forward with original ideas of self-expression. The Blog has become the scrapbook of modern life, propelling our important moments into the world. The Blog takes the pages of the scrapbook, buried beneath the dust of the attic, and thrusts them into the light of contemporary life.

2) The Blog is the new Diary

For most of us, it is important to express ourselves freely. We all need an outlet to vent, celebrate, or remember things in our daily lives. The Blog is great for children yearning to express themselves day after day.

3) Baby Is Born

The birth of a child is a wondrous moment, a true miracle in action and the fulcrum of life’s joy. We are the Stars of our own story. Our first breath in this world is a memory we should cherish and announce.

4) Going Home with Mom and Dad

When the Baby finally leaves the hospital it is an amazing moment. All parents remember and cherish that first night at home, whether or not they sleep through the night.

5) First Word

Whether it is Mom, Dad, or another affectionate syllable the first word is one of life’s most important happenings. An essential part of knowing ourselves is to know the events of our lives, and the first word is a defining developmental leap.

Freedom! We are moving around in our environment, trying to find a way of reaching out. Crawling is an important memory for parents and children alike.

7) First Birthday

We’ve made it this far and our discoveries of the surrounding environment are starting to affect us. Mom and Dad are weary and exhausted, but they are the happiest they’ve ever been. The gleam in the eye of a child as he or she blows out those first candles is an exhilarating moment for the entire family.

8) First Steps

Emblematic of our resolve and determination as humans, the first step is a testament to individual strength. We take that step, developmental and physical, and we never go back. From that moment on, we will stand up straight, exploring the world in a new way.

15) First Pet

The tiny puppy with the squeak for a bark or the curious kitten purring beneath the blankets; the first pet is a memory all children will cherish.
