FREITAS, Elisa Aires Rodrigues de  and  SILVA, Luiz Carlos Avelino da. Writing about the self-teenagers and their blogs. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.2, pp. 139-157. ISSN 0103-5665.

Writing in diaries is a form of expression. That has used by teenagers for a long time now. Actually, the diary has migrated from paper to the internet, in the so-called blogs. This article discusses teenage as a phase of the construction of identity and the role that intimate electronic diaries in the processes of elaboration. The objective of this work was to investigate these experiences and describe the functions that the blogs writing have in the lives of the teenagers. Where analyzed four blogs made by teenagers following a psychoanalytic reference. The conclusion indicates that the blogs might work a space to elaborate to think and to acknowledge emotional experiences, working also as an analogue to 'the potential space" theorized by Winnicott (1967/1975). The analysis suggests that the function of writing in blogs is linked to the attempts to elaborate the changings the teenagers go through and to the process of growth.

Keywords : teenagers; blogs; identity.
