The Amazing Adventures of Lightning Dash

I'm still not sure this is a good idea, making his blog public and all. But the kiddo wants it to be read widely and publicly so here goes...

Full disclosure: his blog contains Amazon affiliate links just as Funschooling's does. What this means is that clicking on his book links may lead you to and if you make a purchase, he will receive a commission at no extra cost to you.

My concern and discomfort with making his blog public is obviously about internet safety...but I have put several safety nets in place and have disabled comments, so hoping it will be okay. Also, I worry a little about the impression readers will get from his posts...he is a silly, crazy but sweet 8-year-old...still very naive about the world...and I don't want to control his dictation to me as I type it (at least not too much) please excuse him (and me too) for anything that seems out of the ordinary.

Edited in April 2012: Kiddo's blog is no longer The Amazing Adventures of Lightning Dash. It is currently: Math and Other Adventures.


  1. Wow, his blog looks great! What a great idea.

  2. Cool blog! Much better than what I have :)

  3. Thanks ladies! The only reason it's even up there is because mom convinced him she'd type for him till he's ready to and help him tweak the design a bit too. He's happy we found a crossword puzzle background. With the caveat we be honest about it all in his profile LOL. He's really enjoying having a secretary!

  4. I just reserved all the books he had listed as his favorites for my son! I was wondering how you come up with the reading list?

  5. Hi Tina! Thanks for visiting. Well, a lot of his favorite reads are not assigned or planned by yours truly. I try to have books of varied topics available on hand and he just picks them up according to interest. Not a very helpful answer I'm afraid!
