Well, As the saying goes:
‘All apples are fruits but not all fruits are apples.’
‘All blogs are websites but not all websites are blogs.’
The major difference between the two types, blog and a static website is about the content refreshment. The major content of website remains the same.
Though the webmaster could add additional pages to the website to increase the content, but the order by which the information is presented could not be later changed.
That idea supports the Blog vs Website theory. There are few technical differences, as to how the data is presented to the readers. We would also discuss couple of reasons due to which blogs are highly considered now days, to present data online.
However, what some of you might not be aware of is the major difference between the two and how these two make a difference to the global world with their presence. Let me put some light to the major differences between a blog and a website.
A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of website or part of a website supposed to be updated with new content from time to time.
Examples of blogs are famous news magazines such as buzzfeed, techCrunch, Lifehacker or news sites such as The New York Times, CNN, BCC, DNA etc. that publish stories on daily basis. Or even sites ran by individuals on a specific niche such as this blog!
A website is a collection of related web pages, including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain name, and published on at least one web server.
Examples of websites is everything that exists on ! Because a website is the mother term given to all sites that you browse online including the blogs. Whether it may be social media networks like Facebook/Twitter or Ecommerce sites such as eBay, amazon, Alibaba or community forums such as stackoverflow, Google forums or Quora.
