During the last decade, the number of Indonesian bloggers has increased fast. This qualitative study aims to view the formation and development processes of Indonesian bloggers. It considers their structure, configuration and dynamics, either in relation to bloggers as an individual or as communities. The structure relates to properties that form a blog in the display format, where language as digital text-based is the most important property. Configuration explains the relation among blogs. Dynamics describe the processes that happen in the system. Our results show many patterns. There is a structure paradox in Indonesian bloggers’ social system: they are culturally equal, but structurally stratified. To conclude, the processes of the formation and development of Indonesian bloggers’ communities are an autonomous system building which still evolve. In this situation, Indonesian communities’ blogger has a similar characteristic dealing with autopoietic system.
