Blogging Insights — Who are you?

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!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Thank you for sharing your words. Your writing flows along like a meandering river, easy to follow, but always has a purpose.

    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…

  3. 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
