Today more and more people are writing blog online. They keep personal diaries in public places. Why would they like disclosing traditional privacy to other people, even to strangers? Few prior studies have been addressed such motivation of blogging behavior empirically. This study will try to incorporate social interactionism in analyzing online blog usage from a new perspective, by exploring how social interaction process affects blogger’s perceived rewards. Empirical research is under way to confirm our hypotheses. Based on prospect conclusion, we hope to find out some new change in mind and behavior that reshape the process of social interaction, the shared value among online users, and even the social structure.
