Can anyone recommend blogs that are safe for a teacher to allow students to visit on their classroom computers? The students are around 12-years-old.

John Scalzi's By The Way would probably be ideal. He talks about a lot of different subjects and his tone is pretty neutral over there. I would suggest the Whatever, too, but the language can be spicy from time to time, and I'm not sure that the topics he covers would be all that interesting to most 12 year olds.

suw charman is one of my favorite blog writers because (whether she's conscious of it or not) her writing is that of a person who is out to make the world around her more pleasant, not less, through her interaction with it. even when she's put off by something, she's not ugly about it. that said, most 12-year-old kids will be bored by suw, but i wanted to mention her, anyway.

i would suggest not martha when the project pages come back up. she sometimes links to places like boingboing which i would be annoyed by someone letting my daughter look at at school, but the design is clean, appealing, and the projects fun to look at. i haven't done too much digging around craftster but it might be appropriate.

Thank you both! I don't have a good gauge of censorship, and it's hard for me to comprehend what is appropriate for lil' ones.

The 12-year-old boys might not go for it, but Loobylu is always wonderful. Plus she's in Australia, so it's a neat little slice-'o-life from the other side of the globe. (Unless, of course, you're actually in Australia, in which case it's a neat little slice-'o'life from down the street.)

Maybe Jake Jarvis, the 12-y/o son of uber-blogger Jeff Jarvis?
