The definition of an author is as follows:

So, yes, you are in fact a writer and author. But, you say 'I'm not a writer. I'm not an author.'
Do you write for a living? Yes. Do you write content for your website? Yes. You do? Then, you are, in fact, a writer and an author. This is one of your many titles when you own and run your own website.
Another title is Researcher. Whether you write books for living or write your own content for your website you still have to do research. A lot of research.

Hi Brendie,
That's a unique way of putting it. I didn't consider myself a writer, I just like to write. Thanks for the insight. Have a great day.

Brendie, thank you for clarifying that great information. There are people who are writers but don't take the credit for it.

I am way more a writer than a talker, I often say the dumbest things or just can find the right words in time, and on paper, I can think things over, re-write, delete, write again etc.

I call that 'lack of communication between the brain and mouth.' Or brain stall. It stops while I'm trying to find the right word or words. Frustrating. Then, I usually have to describe what it is I am trying to find the word for. Downright irritating at times!
But, I am practicing. The look on other peoples' face while you stand there trying to find words is not encouraging.

Also if you proofread and correct your writing Brendie, that makes you an editor as well!
