Blogger versus Influencer

Since we all are becoming such a great community of enthusiastic ladies, it is always a fun to start some discussion that is constructive and knowledgeable at the same time. I thought today we should talk about the difference between ‘Blogging’ and ‘Influencing’.

Most of the people, here in Pakistan, call themselves bloggers even when they are not. If you just run an Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest account etc. (Social platforms); you’re an influencer, social influencer or a Socialite but not a blogger at all.

Almost all bloggers are influencers, but not all influencers are bloggers. To call yourself a blogger, you need to have a ‘BLOG’ either on WordPress, Blogger or any other related medium. You should go by a website, with enough and strong content, if you really want to be a blogger.

Having said that, being an influencer isn’t derogatory or any less than being a Blogger. I have seen people these days successfully writing some amazing content over just Facebook; that’s the beauty of social media! Also, I think it is relatively easy these days to garner more audience on Facebook or related platforms than actually pushing people to click on the link and read the content. Correct me if I am wrong, or have your say if you want to add anything here.

Thank you for reading.

  1. That’s what I noticed, you easily get a lot of followers, likes and comments on soacial platforms. It’s easy to build an audience there but really hard to get some clicks on your blog site however catchy or attractive you write. People try to go for things that are easily readable while scrolling through the media rather than clicking on a link and waiting even two seconds for the page to upload.
