I am No Longer a Blogger, but a Writer

Day 53/365: So what do you do for a living? Well, I write…

I’ve been writing on blogs ever since I was in high school. I am over that now. I am still a blogger and blog daily here, but I’m a writer now. I’m a full-time content creator, to be more specific and I have a website and everything to show for it. Although I’ve moved from a desk job into the freelancing world not long ago now, and I’m still adjusting to the “my own dream, my own boss” dogma, I still use a pen and a notebook to schedule my daily tasks.

“Pen to paper encourages pauses for thoughts… makes us think more deeply about #life” — Norbert Platt

In fact, here’s what my “About Me” page says about me:

Ever since I was a little boy, I was fascinated by the possibility of putting ideas, images, life events and stories into words. In 3rd grade, I got my first A in Literature class with a story about my dog Ella, which was the first time I’ve ever gone nuts over a grade at school.

In high-school, I got a bad grade in Informatics, which had me thinking about opening a blog online and write about my injustice and sorrow, so I did just that. The next day, the whole city, including the mayor, had learned about my blog and read my story. Of course, I got into trouble and almost got expelled because of the blog post, but I knew that for the rest of my life I’d love to do just that: put words on a blank document and write until it made a difference, for me and my readers.

I landed my first job as a journalist at age 17. By age 24, I’d worked in all forms of media, including online and printed press, television, radio and podcast production. I am also an author and writing consultant, which is most helpful if you’re also preparing to become a published author and are in need of guidance.

My goal is to simply come up with the best content for you, regardless if you’re a blogger, business owner, future author, scholar or any other person that needs something to be well written.

Here’s my website! I worked hard on it, so please go check it out.

Why am I telling you all this? Because, although I’m trying to keep up with this blog and write relevant and interesting articles every single day, there are going to be days like this one when I’ll never be able to come up with some great quality content, which is when I’ll go for short articles like this one.

No, I’m not giving up on the challenge. No, I’m not going to start posting one-word articles or poems that make no sense. I’m still going strong and I’m going to finish this challenge, but with a full-time job now, I’ll sometimes have to succumb to it and put this blog in the second row.

I used to be a blogger that loved to write.

Now I’m a writer with a blog.
