Mah Boon Yih's Blog (2.0) is a one-stop centre unveiling Mah Boon Yih's educational innovations hosted by Blogger including Mah Boon Yih's Blog, Mobile Curriculum Vitae (m-CV), and Web-based Cognitive Writing Instruction (WeCWI). More educational blogs are going to be developed from time to time with different attributes and purposes. ESL instructors can take these blogs as references to create their own blogs tailored to their teaching needs and learners' characteristics; while for ESL learners, they are free to visit these blogs as self-accessed ESL learning platforms. For example, Mobile Curriculum Vitae was introduced and empirically investigated on its acceptance among university students. eCollegeFinder and Language Magazine organised a Top ESL Blogs Award competition to celebrate insightful ESL blogs, written especially for those teaching or learning English as a second language, and those earning a TESOL degree. Mah Boon Yih's Blog (2.0) is honoured as an ESL Blog Award Finalist and listed as a reference for the students and teachers who aim to broaden their learning and teaching experiences.
