Writers Vs Bloggers: What’s The Difference?

I like th idea that bloggers and writers are kind of similar! 🙂

Writing about...Writing

What defines a blogger? What defines a writer? What is the difference between them and how important it is?

Ok, to get to the bottom of this, we need to go through the hard-core definitions first, so let’s check Wikipedia first:

  1. Based on those definitions, it is difficult to say whether I blog or write. I do not care. My posts are rarely diary style entries but most are relatively short. Regardless how considered, I will continue to write what is of interest to me. It is difficult to imagine writing out of a sense of obligation. Being in my mid-80s, if something does not in some way bring its own reward, it is not worth doing.

    Everyone can be a writer — the subject in not important. Very few of us are accomplished writers hoping to someday publish the next great popular novel. Anyone considering posting something should be encouraged to do so. I look forward to when anyone possibly hesitating will join the rest of us already posting our thoughts and stories.

      1. I too liked what the author had to say about this subject, Cat, this is why I reblogged it.

        So, this post was Published by Lorene M.! She says:

        “Writing is easy… everybody writes something. But who is writing? The heart, the brain or a mix of them? Why do you write and what is it good for? I guess we have to write everything down and find out!”

        View all posts by Lorene M.: I find she writes a lot of interesting articles about this subject.

      2. Writing helps sort out thoughts, ideas, feelings – and helps me stay sane and on top of things. Thank you for rebloggingui this,, dear Uta. I hope you are finding your way in this new year. Blessings.

      3. I like, what you write, dear Cat. You say, you hope for me to find my way in this New Year.

        Yes, a lot of it is new for me in this New Year. Meaning, I have to sort out my feelings about a lot of things. What I wish most for myself is, not to get upset about anything. Make changes where they can be achieved, but to be happy, when the changes take time. Not being upset about it that maybe I do not have much time left, but to be happy about every day that is still given to me. And even if I can achieve only very little each day, to be content with just that little bit that I can still achieve. Even if sometimes I think I waste too much time, I want to try to be gentle with myself by telling myself that I really do each day as much as is possible for me to do.

        These days I spend most hours of the day totally on my own, while a lot of the time doing the every day things that need to be done. This includes a bit of walking with my rollator, hopefully catching some sunshine and being able to enjoy beautiful fresh air! Also, while walking, becoming aware of my feelings and maybe of some distant memories. I might be feeling how important it is to be able to talk to people, yes wishing to have a conversation with someone, thinking about what I would like to talk about, or what some other person would like to talk about to me. As far as writing is concerned, this is often to me just like talking. I reckon, when you talk to somebody, you usually get some kind of response. Can I imagine some kind of response, oh yes, I can imagine a response about certain subjects that I would really like to talk about. How good writing is to somehow sort out our feelings and thinking!
