Have you written (or do you still write) for print media? How do you find that different from blogging or writing for electronic media? Which do you enjoy more, and why?
The only thing I’ve ever written that was printed was in my school magazine. After that, I haven’t written anything that was printed, ever.
Now as I have answered the question, I should end my post here.
But I find the difference between print and electronic media, interesting. Blogging, though is mostly based on our personal thoughts and ideas, is read by a limited audience, those who follow our blogs. While printed matter can be read by anyone. That means that the language and the nuance should be carefully selected to convey the meaning in a precise manner.
I do enjoy my blogging experience a lot and I feel that writing for a wider audience will be more challenging. It would also involve a certain measure of censorship, which is an off-putting idea.
So if I am given a choice between the two media, I would choose to blog.
