This question came up in a Facebook discussion … what IS the difference between a writer and a blogger?

As someone who has been a blogger since early 2006 and a writer before that, here was my answer:

A writer writes.

A blogger:

  • Writes
  • Shoots photos
  • Shoots video
  • Operates online publishing software like WordPress
  • Knows how to distribute and promote his/her work via email, social media, and savvy SEO (Search Engine Optimization.)

I’m proud to call myself a blogger.
