Abstract
This study aims to illuminate the perception of Spanish and English language bloggers and to understand them and their activities from the analytical perspective of an online European Public Sphere (EPS). The research, using a methodology of semi structured online interviews, answers two questions. The first one is how these bloggers give evidence of an actor-based online European transnational blogosphere. And the second what, based on the interviews, do they perceive to be the key attributes of the EPS, including its majors strengths and problems. The findings give evidence of what is it the role of the Euroblogosphere in the online EPS, and its contribution of more democratic debate.
