Are You A Journalist Or A Blogger?

By Luchie Aclan Arguelles

WRITERS seem to be confused or unsure of the hat they wear vis-à-vis their role in the universe. At one time, the Palace was inclined to give Press accreditation to bloggers. Duh!? There were utter objections from true-blue journalists who, after all, did not just mushroom from nowhere. 

So here I am writing my thoughts on this query, in the simplest terms.
