This paper presents initial results from my PhD study that investigated the variation in adult learners experiences of developing personalised, collective learning networks using weblog technologies. A pedagogical framework developed from practice underpinned the research which was designed to test the original model. The qualitatively different ways of experiencing weblogs is described by categories of description which highlight critical aspects of learning that can inform further expansion of pedagogical strategies. The research contends that learning through self-publishing in a collective learning network has the potential to produce a deep approach to learning that enhances reflective, meta-cognitive, and critical writing skills.
