The Internet

Hi guys!
Today I'm going to take a break from my photography posts, and talk about something we all use, the
internet. In fact we spend 28% of our day on it! Average teenagers spend 27 HOURS A WEEK on it!! We uderestimate how much time we spend on the internet. And just to be an annoying smarty-pants, you are actually using the internet right now. (Sorry about that, that was lame!) Here is a list of cool or weird facts about the internet:
  1. China has treatment camps for internet addicts.
  2. There is high speed internet on the way up  Mount Everest.
  3. Just 15% of adults in the U.S. do not use the internet!
  4. Researchers are thinking of adding internet addiction to the list of mental disoreders.
  5. 9 million adults in Britain have never used the internet.
  6. 50% of internet users will quit waiting for a video to load after 10 seconds.
  7. One third of Italians have nevet used the internet.
  8. The "Fi" in "WiFi" doesn't mean anything. The creators just called it that because it rhymed with "HiFi"!
  9. In 2010, Finland became the first country to make internet access a legal right.

Today's quotes are:


I love these two! I couldn't pick between the two, the first one is to do with the topic of this post and I just laughed at the second.

Comments

Hi guys! So I started this blog this day last week and I haven't had any comments, apart from 3 I wrote myself. How hard can it be? I often comment what I think on my favourite blogs, and I like to be honest when I'm writing. I changed the comment settings, so that you don't need an account to comment (You just write it and press 'comment' or whatever) Please could you tell me what you think of the blog, or what you think my next post should be about, or any ideas on how to improve my blog. Or just something about yourself. I'm really happy that my first post got so many reads, I have many more than ten readers now.  Thanks to everyone who reads my blog and (ok, I think you get the message now) comment!

I'd like to keep this post short as it just a notification :) Thanks

I've written a SHORT STORY!!!

So I have written a short story about a girl, and she loves music. I hope you enjoy it! EEEEK! I really enjoyed writing it. The title is based on a line the song "American Pie" by Don McLean. If you spot any mistakes, just comment below. And tell me what you think in the comments! 


THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED  By Meain Girl The traffic on the way home was terrible. I was so bored in the bus, I actually got all my homework done. When I got off the bus, I ran home, opened the door and went upstairs, taking the usual two steps at a time. I ran into my room, grabbed my guitar and started to practice the song me and Edmond wrote. Me and Edmond have been best friend’s since I moved into the neighbourhood. He lives on the street behind me, so it’s easy to keep in touch. While I was in the middle of thinking what to put in the next verse, the doorbell rang. I was hoping it was Mum or Dad so they could put on the dinner. But who was at the door but Beth. Argh- Beth. She is my annoying nex…
