I write because I have to write. It is what I am: a writer. The traditional way to get published is so difficult to break into but I have had a few successes in that area.
With blogging my writing can be published world wide instantly with a potentially huge readership. At present that is only in the thousands but it is growing rapidly. In the print media I am lucky to get several hundred readers. One publication I am published in regularly only has a circulation of about 80 people.
Nice post. Thanks for sharing this one Meg!
