Báyron of the great Ethecofem blog asks:
Wait a minute, does this mean I count as a writer if I keep a blog?
If you are asking yourself the same question, here is what you need to consider:
– Do you write?
– Do you spend a significant portion of your time writing?
– Do you have readers?
– Are you a reader?
– Is writing an important part of your identity?
If the answer is yes, then you are a writer. And the reason why you have trouble seeing yourself as a writer might be that you have an erroneous image of what a writer is like. (See here and here for more on this subject).
