What is the difference between a blog and a website?
November 30, 2009 11:22am CST
Many internet users have this doubt. I try to explain this with my little knowledge. Both blogs and websites have the same objective-to publish content. In a website the main page is static(does not change) In a blog main page is changing constantly. Whatever you publish lastly would appear first. This is the main difference. websites are commonly used in business.Blogs are more commonly used as personal diaries. People blog to share their views with the world. This is what I understand about website and blog. Any better information on the topic?

A blog is online diary where the blogger can write posts on personal interests, reviews, experiences and many more. A website is a standard place, where the company cannot go for personal opinions of its business. It is for publishing formal and official information. Websites content seldom can be changed easily and frequently. Whereas, content in blogs can be updated easily with WYSIWYG based text editor..... As blogs are personal online diaries, they are not created with a focus on marketing, which makes them vibrant in terms of layout, design, and content. Therefore, visitors often come to read personal reviews, opinions, or personal details. Websites are created with specific purpose. This may restrict them in designing, structuring, and presenting the website.....Websites give overview of a company, and give information about the products, and services but does not take any feed back. Communication flow in blogs is two-way. After reading the blog, readers give feedback in form of comments. Generally for websites, it is one-way communication. Creation of a website for a company may force to spend huge amount of money for domain registration, web hosting, content development, etc. For creating a blog, its takes only a few dollars to host or even you can do it free using some blog service providers like Blogger, or WordPress etc.
