Blogging. Some tell me it's not really writing. (You know who you are.) Well, if this isn't writing, then is it just messing around and typing words on a computer for fun or practice? Is it just a waste of both yours and my time? Some say it doesn't have a valid purpose. I say a hearty "NAY!"
Blogging is a way to connect with other people, and to share experiences and knowledge. I have learned so much about life, read great examples of faith and love, and learned tons about the writing process from technique to queries to publishing and life after publishing. It's also an avenue or tool to support each other and to lift and buoy up the weary.
Oh sure, we can waste time surfing blogs when we should be catching up on our chores, writing or even sleeping. Yes, some blogs are nothing more than sheer entertainment. (Beats TV, if you ask me, and if you didn't, too bad, this is my blog post.) Just like everything else in life . . . balance in all things.
What say you, dear reader of this blog? YAY or NAY. Is blogging really writing?
