-- TeenTechBlog.com is a not for profit blog designed to help regular everyday teens in understanding and using technology. It was founded in December of 2007 through the Torah Academy of Bergen County (TABC) (Based in Teaneck NJ) Leadership Institute (the school the 2 founders, editor, and business manager go to). The Leadership Institute is a program that TABC designed to assist teenagers in developing and making the contacts to run independent projects such as this, and in this short amount of time, our site has reached over 6,000 visitors, with almost 3,000 of that reached in this month of June alone, and with higher numbers of people checking out the site being reached every day. All aspects of the site are run by teenagers, from the writing, which is done by co-founders Eli Blumenthal and Chaim Gartenberg, and also Aidan Galea (a reader from Australia who emailed TeenTechBlog through the "Contact Us" page with the question on if he could join as he was fascinated in what TeentechBlog was doing), to the editing done by Charlie Wollman, to the management and maintenance of the site which is done by Tzvi Solomon. The entire site costs about $20 a year to run, and primarily focuses on technology news, reviews, and our own opinions on the varying and confusing world of technology, written from our unique perspective as teenagers who can relate best to the other teenagers out there.
