What is The Difference between a Blog and Website

There is always something more to learn, every time one surfs the internet, even for a while.  In other words there is no point in getting smug about the knowledge of internet in general and computer in particular. While surfing/navigating through the pages, one comes across innumerable bandwidth bytes of websites and blogs.

Blog and website are as different as a chalk and cheese.  But still both the terms were confused with each other and interpreted incorrectly according to one’s understanding/limited knowledge. Then what exactly is a website and what is a blog? We get our basics clear in differentiating these modern terms in a way that everybody understands; even a non-tech savvy lay man.

Basically, the presentation format of blog and website is different, theoretically. Not to tax ones brains pondering over these differences, consider a fine line between a blog and website that may seem relatively similar but they are not in the true sense.

What Is a Blog

So what is a blog after all? It is basically a web log from where a blogger draws out blog posts listing it chronologically. For example the latest and recent blog content precedes the previous updated ones. A complete blog system with design templates can be easily started with support services from WordPress or Blogger.

Predictably success of the blog is on fresh and updated contents. But once in a while one also comes across some junk content. The need of the hour is quality and regularly updated contents that qualify as a good blog.

Identifying Blogs

  • Blog posts that are chronologically listed.
  • A reply back commenting system that invites readers to participate in debate or communication and leave behind feed-back.
  • Blog posts get tagged, categorized with author name and date.
  • Feedly etc. for feed back comments/ posts from readers viz., RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

What is a Website

Website is anything presented in HTML/JavaScript on Internet. It can be complimented with a blog.   Home page would be more for browsing other pages and not just for posts. Well designed colorful websites are expensive as it has to be constructed from the initial stage. Adobe Dreamweaver platform is compatible enough to build and design a website. While a website could be more than one page something like a Facebook a blog can be part of a website linked to the homepage as it is a bigger aspect with limitations.

Identifying Websites

  • Contents from several sections of internal website pages displayed on a homepage.
  • A design portfolio with complete work.
  • A blog could be part of a website.

Blog or Website?

A complete featured online portal with interaction ability is website. The website works well blog for a company that offers products and services. However, a design created by a professional craftsman expert in website building will go a long way with interacting with customers by way of feed-back.
