For some time now this topic has been hanging around my head so I finally decided to write about it. Are you a blogger or a writer? Yeah I can hear you saying another one of lawmacs thought proving question. Yes I love to be thought provoking at times and sometimes even a bit controversial but does that makes a blogger? No, it just my style. Now back to that question I asked earlier. In my views and this are just my views a blogger and a writer are two different characteristic some may disagree with me on this but I will try and explain.
We all know what a blog is some I am not going to explain that here. A blogger is a person who keeps and updates a blog or simple put an Author of a blog that simplifies it a blogger must have a blog or is an author of a blog. Although both a blogger and a writer write we must not confuse the two because in some case you can own and update a blog but never write of produce any written literature. As a blogger you could have some one that writes for you for free or paid.
Now this brings me to the other part of the question who is a writer? According to one definition found on Wikipedia A writer is anyone who creates a written work, though the word usually designates those who write creatively or professionally, as well as those who have written in many different forms. By now we established the difference of both but there are similarities but different characteristics by this I mean as bloggers we all write but the main point to remember here is that a blogger needs to have a blog or a at least be an author of a blog.
A writer is someone who writes in any form whether it may be in the form of a book news print of even online but they are not required by definition to own or update a blog. However, a write can still write articles for a blog but ultimately it is the blogger who updates the blog.
To recap Are you a blogger or a Writer? You could be both. To be a blogger you must update or own a blog but been a writer you could write for a blog but does not update or keep/own one. There still not satisfied with my explanation feel free to add your voice to the debate. Now really who are you a Blogger or a Write let me hear your views.
