AbstractBlogs are websites on which posts appear in reverse chronological order. Driven by web technologies, blogging finds diverse uses in self‐expression, teaching and learning, social interaction, information exchange, community building, marketing, and other business motives. Considered as a form of parajournalism, blogging has invoked much debate about its relationships with traditional and professional journalism. As a form of prosumption in a participatory web culture, blogging has once been favorably associated with counter‐cultures that will resist the dominant culture. Recent developments in corporatization and commercialization of the web space, together with the rise of microblogging in social networking sites, suggest that it will become more mundane in the new media environment.
