the majority of the things i post on my blog are written exactly how i would say them if we were sitting across the table from each other shooting the shit - only if i was in front of you it would be louder. luckily blogging comes fairly easy for me - i just write like i talk.
...sometimes i have a lot to say and sometimes i don't.
but i never considered myself to be a "writer" - i'm a blogger.
there's a difference right? right?
i'm beginning to think there isn't.
if someone asked me a few months ago what it is that i do i would never think to say, "i'm an account manager at a marketing firm, i'm ridiculously good looking, i can cross one eye while moving the other one back and forth, i can bend like a pretzel, oh - and i'm a writer"
the last part would definitely be left out. (everything else i would say... obviously)
so to my blogger friends out there, would you consider yourself to be a writer? a straight blogger? a diarist? an observer? a comedian? or something else?
share with me, i need to figure out what to tell people at cocktail parties.
editors note: i am so excited and honored to be a finalist for the 20-something blogger awards. with all the bloggers that started in 2008 it is a huge deal to be nominated in the best up and coming category. AND the best title too! woo! i'm thinking we need to have an awards ceremony at the meet-up in chicago this summer - i mean, who doesn't enjoy a trophy?
