What is the difference between a blog and a website?”
I get this question a lot.
.. You can imagine the look on my face whenever I have to engage in such an interesting conversation. I never have the strength to begin the process of explaining.
I always have to do a silent” wphew “!!
If you’re one of those people who have been wondering what the difference between a blog and a website is,
Well… Today’s your lucky day, I’m going to help you out!
So let’s clear the air and reveal the difference already!
First…. all blogs are websites but not all websites are blogs… Did I hear you say “how”??
It’s complicated,I know! just hold on it’s going to make sense in the end.
a website is the mother term given to all sites that you browse online including the blogs.
It’s kinda like the saying
All Apples are Fruits, But all Fruits are not apples.
It is important to know that
The difference between a blog and a website is more about form and structure than anything else.
Blogs are informal while websites are more formal, there’s no room for interaction on a website as there is no commenting section.
Blogs have posts on the homepage, but websites have pages on the homepage. Like about us, contact us etc.
Also a website could also have a blog as one of its pages.
While a website’s homepage features static contents that rarely change, a blog is constantly taking a new look as new posts replace old ones on the homepage.
Blogs are generally more informally presented to the visitors. The language used is often much simpler than on websites.
So, I hope this helps you.
I tried to keep it as simple as possible.
