The debate on how blogging is different from writing, in general, is one debate that may last for centuries to come. This is because of the perceived similarities between the two terms and their applications. For “writers,” it is easy to read through a blog and come up with the conclusion that bloggers can’t be considered as real writers. This is because according to most seasoned writers (story, book, print writers), bloggers do not seek to analyze problems, but tend to push out short and witty articles that attempt to go around the main problem without thoroughly analyzing it. While this may be one of the major differences between the conventional idea of writing in its domain and the term blogging, there are several other differences between these two terms/ideas. Language vs. Keywords This is also one of the major determining differences between these two terms. The hallmark of excellent writing is the choice of language, the dynamics associated with the diction, and the use of key writing strategies. In “writing,” there is no need for the use of keywords unlike when it comes to blog writing. Keywords and SEO are the oxygen of blog writing. Today, with the introduction of search engine ranking, any great blog writer must understand the intricacies associated with blog writing to rank on search engines. Take, for example, if we are to write a play, there is no need for the use of keywords, but if we are writing a blog on Chelsea FC, there will be an inclusion of keywords such as London football clubs, Football Clubs, Abramovich, and English Premier League. The Writing Style Every writer must have a brief idea of what the term ‘writing style’ entails before kitting him/herself in the cloak of writing. Writing style differs from professional, casual, humor, and a mix of all. For writing such as script writing, press release writing, eBook writing or other forms of writing besides blog writing, the tone is usually professional and expository. When it comes to blog writing, the tone is usually casual or a blend of all the above-mentioned writing styles. The basis of the Central Idea This is one aspect where blog writing differs from the conventional idea of writing in its entirety. The basis of blog writing is usually based on personal opinions, thoughts, and feelings. In trying to answer blog topics, blog writers tend to proffer solutions, responses based on personal experiences. This is far different from the basis of writing such as press release writing, research writing, and other forms of standard writing which are centered on credible reportage, statistics with clearly defined sources.
