This is a first thing that determined whether you are willing to be a blogger or just an ‘online’ writer.
What is a difference between this position?
Blogger: Its your responsibility to create a blog that match your interest and must have a powerful mind , hardworking, a great commitment ,maybe some expertise in designing will help , plus some time to take care for your own blog. Keep it fresh, not just the content , also the designs as well, and be caution about the post that you may write – you’ll end up in jail or being hated by all just because what you have typed !
Writer: You only write what you want to write and it is your duty to keep up to date . Almost the same as blogger, but this position required a little amount of spare time . Why? Because if you open up a blog , your blog maybe too old for some. Some maybe prefers a blog that inspired them , aside the design that looks quite ‘antique’ . Let face it, designs do matter. Plus , writer only WRITE , not DESIGN.
What if I want to do both ?
Well, seems like you have much spare time to fill with ! No biggie – create a blog AND sign up for sites like UsualWords.com (I already used it ) or list of writing online site (Google Chrome) . Also for writers, instead just sharing your thoughts alone, being paid in what you write definitely will boost your confidence and putting yourselves for the fame, name, glory in global cyber world.
Anyhow, this is only my opinion . I have spent months , trying to figure out and felt the experience in both section. A good start for those young writers and great story tellers to expand their experience and sharpen their creative thinking and writing skills .
Happy Reading and Good Luck !
