Jessica On The Web — What Teenagers Buy On The Web

Christmas break is over. :(

I know that everyone thinks that music is #1 but we trade music at school, mostly rips from CD’s that we buy at the mall. Going to the mall with friends to buy CD’s is more fun than sitting at home downloading songs.

I get in trouble for buying ring tones and you can find more ring tones on the web than anywhere else. Some of my friends have had their phones taken away because they spent more on ring tones than they spent on the bill.

My friends and I also trade Bad Taste Bears and dirty tees or shop at Funky Chunky. For Christmas I bought bead kits for some of my friends.

The most expensive thing I’ve bought on the web is concert tickets. Shianne’s dad asked me what ads I click on but I don’t click on any unless it’s for a singer or band I like or there’s a new movie coming out.

Chris, I’m going to print out your questions and use them for a poll for next week’s blog. I think the coolest website right now is WordPress but that’s because my friends are setting up blogs on it now.

My teacher want to know if bloggers want to read blogs with articles, or if blogs are supposed to be like conversations and if bloggers think they can change the outcome of elections.

That’s all for this week but if anyone has questions please blog them here.

  1. Sounds good Jessica – we look forward to it.

  2. i think i’m really going to enjoy these posts.

  3. Blogs can be both articles and conversations. You can have sports car or a luxury car in the end both are cars.

    I don’t know that bloggers can change someone’s mind directly and affect an election, but they can create a reputation management problem pretty easily if they want to, creating some doubt in a voters mind.

  4. Hi there, I discovered your website by means of Google even as looking for a comparable topic, your website got here up, it appears great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  5. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I’m quite certain I will learn plenty of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!
