  1. Hi Nishant…..

    Not all bloggers are Journalist….. because most of bloggers enter into blogging by reading some crappy lines – “How to earn 1000 dollars monthly using your blog”.
    They have started their blog without having any passion in it. They don’t deserve to be called as blogger.

    But there are bloggers who have entered into blogging because of their passion in a particular field and they are doing their best to bring best about that topic for their reader like a Journalist.

    Thanks for sharing such an interesting topic with us.

      First of all thanks for the Comment,
      I agree with you brother, Most of people enter in blogging by reading money making articles on the web and they are influenced by their success, but still some bloggers are really passionate about their work and I already mention in the Post that some special kind of blogging is the Part of journalism.

    I am very much happy after reading your thinking about bloggers. We bloggers are the integral part of the internet media and we are the one who can make a product Rockstar or degrade its reputation.

    But we must always be fair about writing and provide the quality stuff only.

    Aww! Now I’ll not mind if some one call me a JOURNALIST. BTW being a journalist is a pride.

      Hi Raheem,
      All bloggers are not journalist, if you fulfill the qualities of journalist in your blogging then you can say that you are a journalist blogger.. :)

  5. I found this post to be one of the most unique posts I have seen recently. You have tried to find the similarities between bloggers and journalists in a very great way.

    I love the way you lie Nishant lol. This is a great post and few weeks ago I have received a similar guest post from one of my friend and published that because It was a gift from him to me.

    I do think that bloggers and journalists has lots of similarities and they can borrow a lot from each other. They both wants to make their audience happy and they work hard to convince their audience that is what I like most about Blogging and Journalism.

  9. Exactly, You feel like your own boss, feeling the world is all yours. Just Pin Down your thoughts and wait for the outputs :)

    Hi Nishant,
    Bloggers and journalists can have many similarities, but in the end all bloggers are not journalists. Journalists can report about a topic and tell all the things in it in a manner that can be understood by people; whereas, bloggers can say something about a topic, expand it in their own perspective, create more examples, spark controversies, and even try to find some ways on how to make money from it. Of course, it depends on what topic it is, but for me, bloggers can really expound a certain topic in a way that it can attract many people from different walks of life. I know journalists can do that too, but since the Internet is full of bloggers that have different backgrounds, cultures, traditions, etc., one topic can certainly mean different things to any one.
    PS: What plugin do you use on the Facebook Like Popup? Sure am curious if it’s a WP plugin.

  11. Hi Felicia,
    I agree with you, all bloggers are not journalist but some bloggers do the same work like journalist they crack stories, create stories, interviews others etc..
    Some bloggers are really work hard to find stories but some copies their story and write it in their own word which is not journalism.

    I am using Facebook Litebox Plugin for Popup!

  12. Hahah :) Now this is something so true! You know, you forgot one point – speech! Well, there are less bloggers who podcast and speak and record, but yet there are (like me, for example) …! Cheers!
