Enriching the migrant experience: Blogging motivations, privacy and offline lives of Filipino women in Britain

  • Abigail Yao

Abstract

This qualitative study explored motivations for blog creation, use and maintenance through interviews with eight Filipino women in Britain and thematic analysis of their blogs. The participants' blogs served as a medium for expression and emotional connection with an audience, communication which led to interaction through other online channels and face-to-face meetings. Blogging, as a practice leading to enriched experiences and a process in which rationale, uses and content change over time, holds both potential and challenges to adoption for migrants.
