Five events are described in a chronological order, which, according to the authors, have driven the consolidation of a territorial community around blogs in Terres de l'Ebre (in Tarragona, south of Catalonia, Spain). From this historical evolution, some conclusions come out on the current role blogs are playing in Terres de l'Ebre and their main features along with the proposal of Ebresphere as the name to define this community. Future prospectives and tendencies to follow-up are proposed. Finally, a classification is established about large groups of blogs configuring this community.
