Do you know the different types of writers?

When I started blogging, I didn't. I found them confusing and at times, I still do.

My understanding:
Blogger: A blogger is a person who blogs. They don't even have to own a blog. They can blog on a site like Medium or LinkedIn.

What makes a blogger a blogger? First, the format is drastically different than other types of writing. You learn quickly white space is our friend and paragraphs can be as short as one sentence long.

Advice: Learn how to write a blog post outline.

Teachers told us in school not to use the second person "you" when we write but when we blog, that's okay.

Bloggers often choose to have comments they reply to.

Marketers: Content marketers do what bloggers do. The difference: Marketers have a goal which is to sell or get people to sign up for their email lists.

There are different types of marketing: social media marketing, email marketing, search engine marketing, affiliate marketing, and content marketing just to name a few. There is even a little-known type called SCO marketing.

There are many tools writers need to learn. For instance, writers often use Grammarly, a Chrome extension.

Social media marketers may try to learn how to make money on Steemit and MeWe. Steemit is a revenue sharing site. More information on MeWe can be found in these MeWe reviews.

Affiliate marketers use sites like Offerup.

SEOs need tools like the Moz toolbar Chrome.

Essay writers: Essay writers differ from bloggers and marketing writers. Essay writers have a different structure which may include the five-paragraph essay. Paragraphs are longer than in blog posts and normally include topic sentences and conclusions.

In conclusion, there is a great deal to learn when you are a writer such as the formatting and the tools.
