Website or Blog?`

Which is better to have? With Wordpress blogs, I've noticed you can have multiple pages for your interests and many blog sites allow you to have several blogs under one account. With all the social networking and blogs, is there any reason to have a website for personal use anymore? Should you have both, or just one or the other?

I prefer and I have a website but I am using also few blogs. The website needs more time, you have to desihn, build and organize. Blog is easy and usually you don't need a lot of time, specially if you start with a free blog. You have just to post there ant the work is done. Probably the best thing is a web site with a blog.

I use only blogs, because they are easier to maintain. Blogs are from free services like, blogger, blogbugs and thumbloger. But I am planing to switch from blogger to wordpress, because it is better, it has many add-ons, better looking templates and you can do what ever you want with your layout! On free blogs you are limited with their rules!

It depends on what you want to do - ideally you'd have both as a blog will get indexed by the search engines quicker but a web site generally has more staying power. Blogs take less work to set up and maintain - once you have it set up you only have to go to your dashboard and write a post - websites take a little more time and effort etc So many set up a main website and then use a blog to make their announcements etc (linking back to the web page) which quickly tells the search engines the main website has been updated etc
