How do you see yourself primarily, as a writer or a blogger, and is there a difference?
There is a definite difference between a writer and a blogger if we go by the common perspective.
A writer is commonly considered to be the one who has a few publications under their belt, while a blogger writes on a blog. A blogger can be a writer in the traditional sense, and there are many writers in our corner of the blogosphere! Those who have multiple books/ publications to their name.
So going by this criterion, I consider myself a blogger. I write poems, informative posts, and short stories on my blog. I never aspired to be a writer in the traditional sense because I never had the urge or ambition to write a longer story or a book.
So if one day, I do get the urge to write something longer, and get it published, I’ll gladly join the ranks of writers.
Till then, I will be a blogger.
This is my view on blogging. I don’t mean any disrespect to anyone else.
Thanks Tanya for another thought provoking question.
