Why Kid/Teen Bloggers Are Underestimated

Hello everyone! I have a sort of opinion post for you today, so I hope you enjoy! Also, I redid my Custom Design page, so if you want a free design, go check out the page. Let's get into the post, shall we?



I've noticed that sometimes, people won't read blogs just because kids write them. I know, this doesn't apply to everyone, but people do it.

You must be wondering, how do I know this? I've seen people not read articles because kids/teens have written them. I was at the library once, getting info for an essay and someone clicked on the post and said to her friend "Oh look at this cool article about solving acne." Then the friend saw it, and said "Oh, but it's written by a 13 year old, probably not trustable." I was completely offended. (I was totally not eavesdropping, they were sitting right next to me)

So, for some reason, people think that articles/posts by kids and teens are not as great as articles by adults. That is a load of crap. Sometimes, kids and teens can create better content than adults.

I also feel like sometimes, adults will judge teens and kids for writing posts about beauty and fashion, and giving advice (especially when kids do it). I think that's totally not fair.

This is a true thing that has actually happened to me; I have gotten an email once complaining that my advice is probably not reliable, considering I'm only 10 (this was last year). Like, woah. First of all, that's rude. Second of all, that's completely unfair. So what if I'm 10? My advice can be just as good as a 22 year old, my age shouldn't matter.

I know that this is sort of a rant, but I felt like it needed to be said. Kid and teen bloggers are awesome, we have potential. We reach out to a huge audience and we are amazing at what we do.

Don't forget to check out the page if you want a design!

  4. I understand this completely. I don't think it only applies to blogging, but life in general. Adults are teaching kids that they can't be trusted and aren't as important as they are. It would make sense if you wereeaching an essay: a professor may be more reliable as a resource. But, when this is applied to blogging and opinions in general, it is completely out of hand. I really liked this post!

  5. so true! i totally agree.
    i think its really unfair that some people won't read things kids have written just because their kids. I mean, really, what is it about kids blogs that aren't trustworthy? its stupid that no one listens. Anyway i loved your post (and blog) =) you're awesome

  6. I know it's frustrating how older people underestimate younger people. What makes them any wiser than you, just because they have a few years over you? You've lived a completely different life and you're full of important experiences and advice to go along with it all. Everyone's thoughts are valuable.

  7. I know right?! It is so biased that kids are immature and not as smart as adults. Sure, it can be true for some, but us kids have a life too. What if you were a parent and you didn't listen to your kids' blog just because the information isn't as professional as an adult's? You could be harboring a child genius right under your nose! That is what I have to say.

  9. WOW. Kids and teens, I've noticed, tend to be a lot more reliable when it comes to making decisions that require a lot of thinking, like when there are a lot more options, because our logic tends to sometimes make a lot more sense.
