  1. Hey Adafruit;

    My 11 year old daughter has started a blog of her adventures with her new Raspberry Pi. She has been very motivated by the projects that you’ve done and even talked about your gmail notifier in one of her blogs.

    Check it out at http://raspberrypikid.wordpress.com. She’d be so happy if you left her a comment.
