Blogs - Internet journals - as a new and expansive phenomena and a demonstration of contemporary writing creativity constitute an interesting, but still undiscovered field of research for a literary scholar. The present paper encompasses such issues as uniqueness of the Internet as its transmitter and its impact on the shape of the blog, and the complex relationship between a personal diary, a silva, and a blog. A separate issue of the authoress' reflection is the status of the author and the protagonist of a blog, and the anonymity that stems from it. The article attempts at a classification of blogs in the traditional genealogical paradigm. Moreover, she touches the issue of the literacy of blogs, their published versions, and exploits the problem of seeing the 'I' in blogs and its condition in the world, where all seems to be already written, recorded, and repeated.
