Bloggers know the silent description of a blog and how it differs from a website. But not anyone who’s spent time on the internet knows the real difference between the two online sites. In order to help you understand it more, I will explain in its simplest form the difference between a blog and a website.
A blog can also be called a website, but a website can never be called as a blog. Confusing? Here’s how they differ.
A blog is a website or what others call a web log that is consist of continuous and updated posts. It’s life depends on the consistency of posts written for the blog. Depending on the niche (topic), a blog needs to be updated at least 3-4 times a week if not everyday. A blog is presented by a chronological post wherein, the latest post comes on top of the list.
Unlike a regular website, readers of a blog can comment on each post. Posts are eventually archived, but remained available for readers to read using the “Search” option and entering the key word. Keywords are essential for blogs in order for readers to easily retrieve a specific post in the blog.
A website is anything on the internet that has specific pages and consists of specific information about the website. This can be anything from a portfolio, a description of the whole website, history, profile etc. Unlike in a blog, a website does not necessarily feature a Home page that can be browsed.
