    Do you consider yourself a writer, a blogger, a poet, or simply testing the waters?

    How would you describe yourself in these terms?

    all of the above smile!  I started to consider myself a writer when I finished my book, although I have been writing since I was little.....a poet too because I write those often, and a blogger because that is my favorite way to write....and testing the waters always!!  Sorry to answer them all, but thats just me.

    A writer, or at least I aspire to be one.  The challenge is, can I put on paper what I see in my minds eye?  I've enjoyed writing, for some time, but it's a new dynamic to post it and see how it's received.

    A writer is all of the above (including "testing the waters'). So, a writer.

    life dips her toes
    into the pool
    of our existence
    I seek
    to be a ripple

    Well, I consider myself a dreamer. And one of them is writing. It can be anything from a poem, to an essay, to fiction or non. I just love to "test the waters", as you say :-), until I find myself  developing a strong preference for any of them and then concentrate there.

    I consider myself all of the above except a poet. Its amazing when you loose yourself in your work and express the way you feel, no one can do that for you. When people read what you write they getting a glimpse about how you view life and what you all about.

    I consider myself none of the above, I just consider that I've always had a lot of verbal diarrhea, and I thought to capitalize on it, if I could. So far, so good smile

    A poet because I find beauty in every instance of life, a writter because I had to become one if I wanted to get good grades on my assignments, a blogger because I cannot resist the temptation to interact with people who write about the things I love, and testing the waters because I am still thinling on going back to the woods, collect samples of the tree that hurt me and write a Hub about it.... smile

    I would like to be a writer, which I won't be until I get something published (not self-published) professionally. Since all of the online writing I do is here on HubPages, which is not a blog, I am not technically a blogger. I have no talent in poetry and I don't really seem to have a head for understanding it.

    Testing the waters? How shall I interpret that? Well, one thing I can say for sure is that I'm a HubPages addict! I am, of course, like you and all who answer this question and all who do not but are members of the club, a "hubber.

    When its all said and done, I suppose I'm a wannabe writer.

    Take care.

    I would consider myself more a proofreader or an editor. I love to help other people with their writing more so than I like to write  my own stuff (fiction).
