Define Journalist

Saturday, March 1st, 2003

I was recently asked if I was a journalist.

Well, I suppose if one creates a journal, one is technically a journalist. However, my guess is that most people use the term to describe someone who is actually PAID to write things. In that sense of the word, I am NOT a journalist.

Thanks for reading my journal! [You may pay me now.]
