This case study analyzes the use of students’ personal self-reflective blog for academic writing activities among ESL tertiary level students at MARA University of Technology. The study was conducted for a period of eight weeks among 18 ESL students who were taking an ESL English proficiency course which include an academic writing skill. The blog was part of the special online activities for the students enrolled in a supplementary online writing program which was developed using a Learning Management System known as EDU 2.0. The research tools used were in the form of students’ reflective online journal entries and a set of questionnaires. The results indicated that the students viewed their personal self-reflective blog to be effective in helping them to be inquisitive and critical during their writing process which enables them to produce better written essays.
