Exploring the potentials of blogging for development

The author explores the potential of blogging for development. A blog enables users to engage in two way conversations and link to one another to form new information-sharing networks. Blogging represents a shift from a more traditional, top-down mode of communication to a more publicly open and transparent one. While the use of blogging for development is beginning to gain popularity, these blogs are still in limited use û and issues of access and literacy remain a fundamental challenge in many parts of the world.
