The Blog's Role for Health Literacy and Knowledge Formation in the Information Society – A Genre Analysis of Structural and Linguistic Patterns in Blogs on Children with Congenital Heart defects

The article explores how genres used on blogs can express certain kinds of knowledge by analysing how parents to children with congenital heart defects use patient blogs. Genre analysis (Martin & Rose 2008) is performed in order to investigate the blog format. The survey shows that the blog content may be regarded as a narrative macro genre that brings a certain framework for the blog as a resource for knowledge formation. The blog format also provides bloggers a well-used opportunity to, within the blog, make their own choices of genre structures and to make shifts between genres. This enables shifts between experience based content and general medical facts, which may work as a resource to gain health literacy.
