This study is aimed at developing blogging activities to promote EFL students‟ writing abilities in producing definition paragraph. The classroom action research was conducted in cyclic activities–planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting on the data gained from the
instructional process–which runs into two cycles, each of which covers three meetings. The subjects were 18 Indonesian second-year undergraduate EFL students who enrolled in writing class. Writing tasks of definition paragraphs, observing writing process through blogging activities, close-ended questionnaire, and interview were used for the data collection. The results revealed that the implementation of blogging activities can promote the students’ abilities in writing definition paragraph. It is indicated by the enhancement of the percentage of the students (75%) achieving the score greater than or equal to 80 and of the percentage of their involvement in writing process during blogging activities in Cycle I and II. The enhancement of the students‟ writing abilities can be reached; however, it should follow the appropriate teaching procedures of blogging activities development in EFL writing class.
