Abstract: The prevalence of web logs, commonly referred to as blogs, has increased markedly since their introduction in 1997. Blogs are web sites where individuals or groups post daily musings and links regarding a plethora of subjects, including news, politics, sports, popular culture and war. This paper provides an overview of the blog phenomenon, and describes a writing course assignment where students studied blogs and created their own individual web logs. It also reports student reactions to the assignment. After creating their blogs, students completed a questionnaire concerning their experiences. They were asked about their perceptions regarding the variety, quantity and quality of information available on blogs, favorite sites, the level of difficulty in creating their blogs, the benefits of blogs for research, and whether they intended to become regular consumers of blog content.
