Blogging has been established as a potential source for reflection. Previous research done on the relationship between blogging and reflective writing focused more on classroom blogs monitored by the teachers. Studies on the relationship between personal blogs and reflective writing are still relatively scarce, especially in Malaysian context. Thus, the present exploratory study investigated the selected bloggers’ perception of blogging. The study also explored the strengths of blogging in developing reflective writers. Two types of instruments namely document analysis and semi-structured interview were used on three respondents selected through purposive sampling. The findings indicated that bloggers viewed blogging as a place for self-reflection and their interests in writing contributed to the reasons why they started blogging in the first place. The research also managed to identify the strengths of personal blogs in developing reflective writers. In conclusion, despite the informal and interpersonal nature of personal blogs, this study provided evidence that personal blogs also contributed to the development of reflective writers.
