Blogging v. Journaling

I was talking to a coworker today telling her I was spending tonight housesitting my son’s apartment and she asked what I’d be doing. I told her having quiet time, writing and resting. She was curious about me writing and I told her I was a blogger. She reacted by saying that blogging is just journaling about your day. I didn’t really know what else to say except to me it isn’t the same at all.

I pondered her reaction for the rest of my shift. Is it just journaling? I don’t think so. I journal on occasion, but I like blogging. To me journaling is private, where blogging is sharing with others thoughts, recipes, travel experiences and the like.

What are your thoughts on this? Is there a difference to you?

I will continue to do both despite this woman’s opinion. I enjoy both. I just wish I had more energy lately to commit to daily blogging. I miss that time to myself.
