 There are many dangers in blogging unsafely. They can cause teens to get realy low self esteem if they dont have it already. If you are wanting to blog make sure they are things that will not hurt other people in any way. Blogs can cause people to feel very uncomfortable and unsafe. All that can do is lower someones self esteem. By lowering someones self eteeem it can cause so many different things, and none of them being any good. It can and has caused peolpe to be suicidal.
    The most legitiment reason to watch what you are blogging about it cause it really can effect other poeple and how they feel about the things you are talking about. The last thing you would want is to say something that could effect someone in a certain way and change there life. You might not think it could have that much of an effect on someone but it really can. It could change there life a lot more then what you would think. Blogging is a way for people to view other peolpes thoughts about certain things and get there opinion.
    By blogging you could get less of a chance to do what you want in life. If you are posting about something and later apply for a job you want but you are blogging about things that they would not think are exceptable, you could loose a chance at getting that job. While students are blogging they should keep in mind that things are going public so to watch what you are saying and talking about. Because it can effect people in many ways.
