At the end of the implementation process, the participants' opinions about their experiences during the process were taken. The data obtained as a result of the interview, indicated that the teacher candidates who first began their weblog writing process with the feelings of anxiety and excitement, enhanced their awareness regarding their personal writing skills throughout the process, felt themselves free while writing weblogs, and directed themselves to investigate in order to find new themes with the aim of writing interesting weblog posts.
