You know the saying, “Life imitates Art” or is that “Art imitates Life?”
Recently, someone who certainly didn’t intend to do so, reminded me that while I am a business owner, chief executive officer, author, stringer, journalist, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and etc. I am also a blogger. The connotation regarding “blog” was at best, derogatory, as often is the case with non-writers attempting to jab those who write “blogs” among a myriad of “other things.”
And, don’t we write many things if we are true bloggers?
Yes we do.
We write all sorts of things, all day, every day. And, for most dedicated bloggers there is a lifetime of masterful creations both nonfiction and fiction in our closet-0′-writing.
So this “blog” is to say, “Thank you for the reminder. I am a blogger. I blog among many other literary guises. Unbeknownst to you . . . in your subtle innuendo, intended to insult and deride, you’ve given me the drive to do what I do and among the myriad of “other” things you couldn’t possibly fathom, you are accurate, I also blog.”
This one’s for you! Enjoy . . . nothing like a little Gaston time.
