I think I may be offended that "blogger" is not considered a writer

Agreed. Although this survey may be considering people who have a marketing blog as a "blogger" rather than those who truly write something creative.

Is this just somebody's suggested list or is it the results of a survey? If the latter, then:

1) Who conducted the survey?
2) What was the target or respondent group?

This is an old thread but I think it speaks (spoke?) to the issue...

Once you cut through the teen and early 20's ideology here is where the real jobs projected to be by the BLS:

BLS Projections

This is where I think the Top 5 will be in 2024 based on my limited/incomplete knowledge and is pure conjecture:

1) Data Scientists (AI, Data Mining, Deep Learning, Machine Learning)
2) Registered Nurses
3) Construction Trades and Fabrication Techs
4) New Energy Infrastructure Workers
5) New Economy Freelancers, Virtual Assistants, and Fractional Employees

Exactly! Did you REALLY know what you wanted to be when you grew up when you were a teenager? Heck, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I'll let you know when I figure it out!

@lunar_ranger

Looks about right to me. I'd maybe add sports medicine and senior care -- although both of those could be wrapped up in nursing if you extend your thinking a little.

For the young 'uns it's never been abt what is needed but abt what they want to do.

@Belew

Are you starting to feel your age? Seems you've crossed some kind of boundary and it's starting to worry you.

Advice: Don't sweat it! Miles to go before you sleep!

@Belew A moody, rock musician... then I got bored trying to learn the guitar.

@lunar_ranger most learning is boring in the beginning ...

Causes me to wonder ... what is there that we can learn and enjoy quickly ... then build on to become really good at it?

Nothing really. You can follow natural inclinations... or ride out your passion and desire- everything is going to fall short without an investment of time. I guess the trick is finding something that can give you the feedback mechanism to reward success, but also challenge and transform the seeds of desire into ability and talent. I believe that talent is trained for most. There needs to be room for failure and improvisation.
