Are You The Youngest Blogger?

youngest bloggerEveryone is blogging and age is no longer a barrier. Don’t be surprised to see young kids blogging about niche topics with zest and authority much better than you would expect. Are you the youngest Blogger?

Carl Ocab, a kid blogger who started making money online as a 13-year-old blogger, has launched a new project called YoungestBlogger, an attempt to list the top 100 youngest bloggers busy blogging and making money online. The list automatically updates every day based on the blogger’s age, Google PageRank, Technorati rank, and Alexa rank.

I checked out the list to find some fascinating blogs. On top of the list is The University Kid, run as a young entrepreneur blog about internet marketing, blogging tips, and how to make money online. Only one blog has PR6 and is called The Blog At The End of the Universe with an interesting description “nothing I say may be true, but that’s exactly how things are”. The youngest blogger is from the Philippines and blogs at Ek Kasi, Bata!, and started to blog when he was just five years old.

I knew only about Michael from WPCandy (a popular blog about WordPress), Shankar from KillerTechTips (a long-time reader of QOT), and Sumesh from Techzilo (a previous guest blogger on QOT).

In case you are wondering, the secret formula for blog ranking is Age: 20%, Google PR: 25%, Technorati: 30%, and Alexa: 25%. Add your blog if you are below 18 years and are actively blogging; you could become famous.

It’s not surprising how technology is affecting kids today. The youngest kid bloggers will surely gain as much attention as the oldest bloggers. Even Barack Obama had to give recognition to a 7-year-old political blogger!
