My day is busy and my inspiration wanes, so the Daily Prompt it is.
This seems like a no-brainer. Do I receive compensation for my blogging or even my writing for that matter? No. Therefore, I am not a professional blogger. Professional typically means having achieved paid status for your work.
However, I do see another definition in Webster’s where it just indicates mastery or skill:
3.a thoroughly professional performance: expert, accomplished, skillful, masterly,masterful, fine, polished, skilled, proficient, competent, able, experienced,practiced, trained, seasoned, businesslike, deft; informal ace, crack, top-notch.ANTONYMS amateurish.
Using this definition of professional, I would have to say….No…still, no. Not a professional.
I have one page, very few widgets, not quite sure how the categories work, and sometimes my pictures don’t even show up right. I see other blogs with fancy banners, and side boxes, and multiple pages organized by topic. I aspire to these things, but am not there yet.
The purpose of my blog is to write and practice writing. If anyone reads it, or I eventually get paid for it, that is just bonus.
