Links for teens

Over the last year, I’ve been working with a group of teenagers from north London schools in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympics. My charge was to teach them how to blog. As I’ve previously posted, they were naturals.

Recently, I’ve started with a new batch of kids, and each time we’ve met I’ve given them a few blogs and links to use as inspiration. I thought I’d share them here. If anyone out there is looking for decent, teen-friendly content, perhaps these will help.
