Mobile phones and PDAs with GPS became widespread, and GPS-based service of mobile terminal is rising, so needs for presentation interface for GPS-based contents are increasing. We employ a robot as a presentation interface. In this paper, we use a blog as our content and propose a portable robot named "BlogRobot" that presents blog content by using verbal and non-verbal expression. Using BlogRobot, people who don't have the knowledge of a specialist can create behavior contents as they note in a diary, and the contents can give reader a feeling like a man who write a blog's entry explain the entry near the entry location.
