Weblog is a good paradigm of online social network which constitutes web-based regularly updated journals with reverse chronological sequences of dated entries, usually with blogrolls on the sidebars, allowing bloggers link to favorite site which they are frequently visited. In this study we propose an elaborate blog recommendation mechanism that combines trust model, social relation and semantic analysis and illustrate how it can be applied to a prestigious online blogging system – Wretch in Taiwan. By preliminary results of experimental study, we found some implications and empirically prove some theories in domain of social networking, and the example reveals that the proposed recommendation mechanism is quite feasible and promising.
