Blogs and Website; what’s the difference

October 12, 2007 at 11:40 am 3 comments

I would assume all people know what a website is. A quite a number of people know what a blog is. However, don’t you ever wonder what the difference between a website and a blog is? Especially now days, it is quite hard to distinguish a blog from a website. To keep it simple, a blog is a website that is your own private site about you and a website is a site that is not personal. (If you want to correct me, please do in the comments) What does the difference really matter? The answer is no. It does not matter. It used to be a little site about yourself and your life. However, over the past few years, it has lost its meaning. Now days, a blog can be a website if you want it to be. If fact, a lot of the best website/blog platforms such as WordPress and Typepad were for blogs when they started. In fact, ‘Tech Help Videos’ (the site you are visiting now!) is driven by WordPress. And it looks pretty good, doesn’t it? Another great example is One year ago, it used to be just a little private blog. But know it has expanded into a make money online site.

And for those people who moans ‘I want a website, now a cheap blog!’ you are restricting yourself and still living in the 1980s. So there you go, the answer is right whichever way you want to look at it. If you say that there is a difference, then you are correct because a blog is a private site. However, if you say that there is no difference, you are also correct. You can make a simple blog look like a pro looking website!

    Ah…that is one thing I forgot about. It is very true that blogs are more easier to update especially with platform and software like WordPress and Typepad. I agree

    The difference is a blog should update daily or thrice a week but a website for example about webhosting is not need to update daily.
    If u dont update your blog daily or twice a week it will be dead but a website still runs.
