Blogging from Prison!

blogging behind bars Blogging from Prison!There are a couple hundred million blogs floating around the blogosphere. And as I’ve recently learned, it pretty much seems like anyone and everyone from everywhere, is blogging or using some other form of social media; from normal folks to big time celebrities – they’ve all got something to say; including me :)! Therefore, it’s somewhat less newsworthy when you hear of someone, especially a famous person, jumping on board the “blogotrain” and starting their own blog. However, it’s generally more fascinating when they do so from prison!

There are actually a large number of “jailhouse bloggers” that exist. But for now, check out the 5 that I visited below.

Ted Braden is a 20 year old boy that was arrested for trafficking MDMA (Ecstasy). He now resides in his cell at RMC-Main in Lake Butler Florida. Since Braden doesn’t have access to the internet, he writes letters to his mom Kelly Shannon Kelly, recounting stories of his crimes, arrests, life in prison and so forth. She then posts them on his blog Teen in Jail in an effort to relay his message to others so that they don’t make the same mistakes. You can follow Mrs. Kelly on Twitter.
