How do you see yourself primarily, as a writer or a blogger, and is there a difference?
Interesting question. I have always liked to write, ask anyone who has received a letter from me either recently or in the past. They could vary from three or four sides to twenty.
I’d write to my Mum once a week, though for the last year or so it was two maybe three.
I never got a response , but I know she enjoyed getting a letter from me as she knew who sent it regardless of the cruelty of dementia.
It wasn’t my idea to start a blog, that lies at Hubby’s door, but I’m glad I did as it was a way to put my thoughts, musings and later poetry on paper. I enjoy it and write several posts a day, though recently I have not done so many for a variety of reasons.
Is there a difference between writer and blogger? Maybe moneywise, after all, a writer pens their words in a book or newspaper article and is compensated for their trouble.
As a blogger, I write, but don’t get a cent, but what I do get is feedback, which in turn I believe improves my writing!
Thank you for sharing your words. Your writing flows along like a meandering river, easy to follow, but always has a purpose.
What a lovely thing to say! Thank you!!
I see no distinction between writing and blogging – both allow artistic expression. Seems the only real difference is that with blogging you have no expectations of a paper publication…
Very true Val. Blogging is spontaneous and doesn’t have a deadline.
I’d like to think of myself as a writer. . . although, when blogging regularly, totally enjoy the pass-time and reference it as writing. Writer or blogger, I’m a beginner. I enjoyed this post. Claudia
I think you’re a good writer Di
I love getting feedback on my posts! I love comments and its fun to see them come in!
