Writers. Photographers. Cartoonists. Artists. Puppeteers. Historians. Coaches. Designers. Musicians. Singers. Entrepreneurs. And many more.
Blogosphere is filled with so much talent.
I land on sites which are so eloquently written, I feel I’m reading a novel from the New York Times best seller list where each word is so captivating I can’t wait to read the next. And other sites have posts so informative and well researched, they could be pages in a college text book.
Blogs draw people from all walks of life with talents which continue to amaze me.
When I started blogging, I knew I wanted to share what I’ve learned and continue to learn in life. I wasn’t sure if there was a right or wrong way of constructing posts, so I wrote how I talk. In some instances it’s pretty cut and dry, whereas other times I’ll share a short story before getting to the point.
My words are simple. My sentences often short.
And although I use the written word as a vehicle to share, I don’t call myself a writer.
I’m a blogger.
To me there’s a difference.
Writers have a love affair with words.
Writers use words to spin a tale. To push the envelope. To take their readers on an imaginary journey. To conjure up emotions. Appeal to our senses. Leave us wanting for more.
As a blogger, I count my words. Weigh my words. Hope to make you think. Encourage you to share. Entice you to teach me more.
Some may say there is no difference.
But to me there is.
I’m a blogger.
What are you?
Do you consider yourself a writer? Or a blogger?
Or do you think there’s a difference?
Care to share?
