I had someone ask me this question a couple weeks ago. For me..it’s just something that is ingrained in me because I’ve been involved with technology for so long. So when someone asks me this type of “simple” question, “What is the difference between a website and blog?” it reminds me that sometimes thing, even the most basic things need to be explained.
A website is basically anything you see online. A page a a collection of pages. What you’re looking at right now is a website. Think of it as a building on a street. There are buildings of different sizes, shapes, colors. Some have garages, balconies, pools, guesthouses. Some are commercial units and some are hotels.They come in all different shapes and sizes. They each have a unique address and are used for a variety of purposes. They are owned by different people. Sometimes multiple people own one building and sometimes one person owns multiple buildings.
A blog is a type of website. You can think of it as a “type of building”. A blog is ALWAYS website, but a website is NOT ALWAYS a blog. Just like a hotel is always a building but a building is not always a hotel.
What really defines a blog is that the content is delivered in. If I write something on my blog today it will show up either on the front page or top of the list of posts on the site. If I write another article (or post) tomorrow, today’s post will move down one spot and tomorrow’s post will be at the top. This continues in date order.
So a blog is somewhat like a journal. Each post is dated and sorted in reverse chronological order.
