I could really relate to this commentary on blogging from Leanne, and asked for her permission to reblog this article.
Recently I was having a discussion with someone and I was told that I was “just a blogger”, with the implication being that I was no one important. There was the implication that just because I write a blog that I was nothing else, and therefore there was no need to take me seriously.
Those words have haunted me, made me angry, and made me wonder, just what it is to be a blogger? Even my children tease me about it. So where do these negative connotations for being a blogger come from?
I think it is interesting that people feel this way about them, considering, I just tried to find out, that WordPress alone has over 60 million blogs, that doesn’t count all the other blogging platforms that are out there. So with millions and millions of blog, why does it have a bad reputation?
