13+ if not on the public web

If they are under 16, their blogs should only be shown on the blogger website.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (23 ):

Publishing at Blogger.com is free and very simple with design templates, drag-and-drop page-building features, and easy-to-follow help resources. Searching other blogs is also a simple process, but it can be a jungle out there without turning on the Google SafeSearch feature. People write about everything -- and anything -- at Blogger.com, and like many online communities, there are a lot of blogs that are not kid material.

If the SafeSearch filter is turned on with Google, Blogger.com is a great place for kids to create, express themselves, and share ideas with others. It can also be a great way to manage photo albums and mobile phone pictures all in one place.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
