I made a disturbing discovery about myself today. I guess I am a bit of a PRINT vs ONLINE snob.
I value online writing very much, it's what I do.
But today in the mail I found the latest family-themed magazine from Focus on the Family, which I receive because I have contributed a short devotional to it. I excitedly thumbed through it and I WAS NOT THERE! I was pretty sure they told me I would be in the March issue of their print version.
I went online and put my name in the search box of their website and there I was in two versions on their website several months ago.
I was disappointed.
And that quick feeling of disappointment revealed the truth. I value print over online publication don't I? I did not think it mattered to me at all, I prided myself on writing for online readers. It is not about the money either way. I was paid very well for this short little devotional for families on the go. It was supposed to be something a family could do in the car or at a meal time.
Obviously there is still some old school in me that considers a paper version of my writing to be more important than an online version.
