This study explored college students' computer attitudes on the use of blogs. The population targeted for investigation consisted of 134 college students at a technical university in Taiwan. Results revealed that most students owned a personal blog and used blog mainly as a place to produce daily reflection. Significant variance among the length of time of using blog was observed, demonstrating that students who spent more time in blogging were more likely to have positive perception on computer usefulness. More importantly, the participants appeared to have developed optimistic attitude toward computer usefulness based upon the amount of valuable information acquired from others' blogs. The implications of this study are discussed in terms of relations between students' conceptions of using blogs and the potential and application of using blogs as a teaching and learning tool.
