Is Blogging a Form of Journalism?

A good question, and quite a few real ‘journalists’ would disagree that bloggers, for the most part, can claim to be journalists, even if some journalists are bloggers.

Oddly enough, one of the definitions of the word ‘journalist‘ is “a person who keeps a journal, diary, or other record of daily events.” In many ways, this is what quite a few bloggers actually do.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

The definition counts me out though, this blog is not really a record of daily events.

Am I a ‘Bloggist’? A term which corrupts even further the origin of the word ‘blog’, which is ‘web’ and ‘log’ spliced together, in much the same way as ‘brunch’, ‘podcast’ and ‘webcast’ have managed to marry other common words.

I’m sure there are others, but they won’t spring to mind.
