    My 7 year old daughter said to me today - "Can I start a blog about how to become famous".

    The bad part is that she has heard Wix is good and she wants to use that platform. I think I need to educate her about WordPress :)

    Let her use Wix first. It is easy for a beginner and will develop her creativity. Wordpress can wait. If she likes what she does in Wix she will start Wordpress for sure later.

    You have to watch who she is hanging out with!

    Next it could be that she wants to rank using hidden text.

    Aww that's adorable.

    I think she'll grasp WP better than Wix. She's young and she can learn things very quickly.

    Teach her WP, even if she wants to use Wix. She'll thank you when she's older.

    Let her start with wix, then show her the same type of website with WordPress and show how flexible WP is.

    My youngest son started around that age. Maybe a few years later (time flies).

    I set him up with a football fan site. He would tell me what he wanted to say and I would help him organize it and type it out.

    Some of his stuff was pretty hilarious. It even went semi-viral a time or two.

    He made enough $ with it to buy every Pokémon card he could find.

    Those were fun days. Hope you enjoy them with yours op.

    Ha Ha, the good ol' days.

    My kids are 17, 19 & 23, none of them have any interest in building websites, just playing games!

    If your daughter learns WP now maybe she'll be good enough to create her own theme or plugin in a couple of years. I know all she wants is a blog right now but maybe she'll be interested in coding too once you show her how it works. Open that door for her. :)
