One Man & His Blog

Journalist or Blogger?

Alison Gow's words of wisdom on the difference between journalism and blogging.

Alison Gow:

I call myself a journalist because I trained in journalism and work in the news industry; I call myself a blogger because I (attempt to) impart or interchange thoughts and opinions via a platform called a blog. I feel defined by both these things, and I believe they are in no way mutually exclusive. In fact, I think they are now, more than ever, mutually dependent. And I’m happy about that.
