“Publishing posts on your own blog is a modern privilege that gives writers the freedom to digitally share their work publicly. And they can potentially reach any reader with an internet connection.
Can you imagine going back in history and telling that to professional writers who only wrote on paper? Scribes whose only readers were those in physical possession of their writing?
They’d surely be amazed.
But today we may miss out on ways to spread our writing, because we’re not as accustomed to the practices our writer predecessors had to use.”
