Profession Definitions for Blogger Types

Professions of bloggers are presented on the Blogger Types Page.  As noted there, a bewildering array of professional titles and names exists in these blogs.  The situation is so extreme that an individual may refer to their work or profession with different titles or names in different posts on the same blog.  In some cases, the descriptions are relatively formal or specific, while others are playful or generic.  So, I resolved all these professional titles and names down to 26 general professional categories, which are defined in more detail here.  So, if you are wondering what types of jobs might fall under each of the professional categories, this is where you will get your answers.

Below are headers for each of the 26 general professional categories and list beneath each header for the specific job titles or names that fall under each.  Although the lists of titles and names is not exhaustive, it includes most of the terms used in the various blogs reviewed.  While you can debate any of these categorizations, the main purpose is to provide some systematic framework that allows grouping of similar professions.  I am not espousing any philosophy or opinion on the value or theoretical relationships between any of these professions.
