8 year old Delaney is a ProBlogger. Her new blog – Horseshues.com is an attempt to buy her a horse (and teach her a few lessons in web design, business and creativity along the way).
The concept is simple – she takes old horseshoes and she decorates them and sells them from her blog for $15US. Its quite the little cottage industry.
The site uses PayPal to collect the income and has photos of each horseshoe for sale.
One of Delaney’s parents left a comment on Paul Allen’s Internet Entrepreneur blog saying that she has made enough in her first week of operations to pay them back their initial set up seeding investment in her project and that she is well on the way to buying her horse.
What a wonderful idea – not only will Delaney get a horse one day from her blog – but along the way she’s learning some really useful lessons and developing some wonderful skills.
The question is – if an 8 year old can do it – what is stopping the rest of us?
