I truly believe that writing is a continuum - so the different genres and forms are simply stops along the same continuum. Different ideas that need to be expressed sometimes require different forms for the ideas to float better. I don't write essays as often as I should.
Like most writers, I find the Web is a wonderful distraction. Who doesn't need that last minute research before writing?
