PUBLISHING TO A BLOG IS SERIOUS WRITING.
If one doesn't understand that, how can they explain the national bloggers who sell advertising in the "$Millions and who influence national politics and generate millions of readers??
HA! How many readers does that attorney generate with his pleadings??
Richard was insulted by an attorney who demeaned his blogging as something less than "writing". That attorney clearly has no knowledge of the power of a blog. He has probably never published to a blog.
The fact that he said "written" anything shows that he is ignorant of the internet and the myriad ways of publishing our writings.
If he had asked had you ever had any works "published", your answer may have been different.
Today, however, one does not have to be a member of PENUSA to publish works.
The attorney's remarks were condescending and insulting, revealing a lack of sophistication and awareness of the POWER OF THE BLOG.
Demeaning you was his job. He could just as easily have used your choice of neckties for that day.

Blogs provide a wonderful conduit for the free flow of information. As a blog is populated with content it can also become a significant archive of accumulated knowledge.
But I look at my blog as more than an assemblage of indexed data. I would actually go so far as to consider myself to be a writer.
I was recently asked at a deposition if I had ever “written” anything. I responded that I had written a blog post every day for over four years, and that over 250 of them (at that time) were nationally featured.
The attorney leaned forwarded and pressed with something along the lines of: “Have you ever REALLY written anything?”
The question stung like a bee. I have honed my craft over the years and consider myself to be quite accomplished in both the written word and the art of photography. I have merged the two disciplines into a daily musing that I consider worthy of authorship.
Perhaps I have deluded myself. But I am of the belief that words are powerful, and when properly used go beyond the simple delivery of information.
Words, when properly ordered, can evoke passion, emotion, and empathy.
The crucible of publishing refines and the results are assayed by the reader’s response.
If this isn’t writing, I don’t know what is.
