Review 683

When I saw that the writer of this weblog is a 16-year-old girl, the first thing I thought was “Oh no, another morbid creature who thinks she has all the answers.” I was happily surprised to find out that, although a lot of her posts deal with depression, sadness and teen angst, she also has a sense of humor, well thought out opinions on a variety of topics and a strong sense of who she is — or who she’s trying to be.

Interspersed among her posts are her original poems, and she’s quite talented. There’s a link to her personal web site, which not only has lists of her likes and dislikes, but samples of her art, photography and more, including a “Pay It Forward” page.

Her layout is simple and easy to navigate, which added to the surprisingly good experience I had at this site.

I think this weblog will appeal mostly to teen-age girls, but it wouldn’t hurt anyone else to stop by and have a look to remember what it was like to be 16. It’s simply a good read, no matter what your age.Kristen Joy’s Mind Expansion
