 Now to the nitty gritty on what makes up the differences.

 

Posts.

 

Posts are said to be the core function of any blog. It is the building blocks of the blog and it is what holds the blog together. The posting on the blog is most generally done by the blog owner and is usually on a variety of different topics. I talked about the key factors to starting a Business in this post.

 

Also another distinct difference between a blog and a website is on the blog the postings will appear in chronological order. With a website you do not have to post. It is just a basic site where a person may go to obtain information on a certain product or idea.

 

Comments

 

On a blog visitors are allowed to leave comments, if you the owner authorize it, on your posts. It is also a good way for a reader of your blog and you to communicate. The comment section of your blog also helps drive visitors to your site.

 

The comment section is a very important component of any blog. With a website you do not have to have a comment section.

Categories

 

The category section of your blog is basically where the information from the posts or posted content is organized. It keeps your site looking neat and well formatted. It also prevents your blog from looking overcrowded.

 

For bigger Blogs the categories can be organized by month or even topic. There is also usually a search feature that assists the reader to find information on a certain topic quickly. Usually the blog has software that automatically places your posts into various categories.

 

Subscriptions

 

This is a very important aspect when you want to learn how a Blog works. The subscription features allows readers to become a member of the blog and once they become a member of the blog they can be notified when new information is placed on a blog.

 

This is a great reason to create a blog as it allows you to create an online community on a certain topic. Some blog sites are now implementing a news letter feature which allows a person to read your information without even having to sign into the site.

As you can see there are some big differences between a blog and a website. The more differences you understand the more you will understand Blogging.

 

A Blog can be a fun and exciting way to meet new people while sharing your ideas, if they are understood correctly.

Come and see what a blog can do for you,

  1. I never really thought of the difference – or if there needed to be a differentiation. Thanks for breaking it all down and showing what defines each!

    1. If you go searching for things on the web, once you know there is a difference, you will see it right away.

  2. Of course a blog is a website. Some set it up differently than others, but they are a form of a site.

  3. Honestly, I have never really given it much though to be totally honest with you. I guess with the amount of content I have created over the years I would have thought it was a website now I am not so sure!

    1. Perfect…… That is what our system is all about. We have all the tools in one spot to help you in all aspects that you need. Our founder started this for just that reason. How much money would you like to make?

      1. Cookies? Then you know this is exactly what you need. Message me on Facebook and we will talk

  4. This definitely gives me something to think about. I know my site is a blog but many websites have blogs but I wouldn’t consider them blogs.

  5. Interesting. I never actually thought too much into a blog vs website. I used to consider mine a traditional blog but now , I have expanded it and I look at it more as an online mag. Kind of a cross between a blog and website I guess?

  6. Great insight! Mine is definitely a blog, but hope that one day I will be a brand of which then I’d be a site. I don’t know what I will do.to become a brand, but.I can take the ride and find out!

    1. Oh, You need to message me on facebook and we need to talk. I have found myself on that journey and it is awesome.

  7. I’ve really noticed a trend on sites where they also have a blog. I think this is a great way to merge the two, especially if you are brand or if you offer products or services for sale.

  8. I do a lot of freelance work for small businesses and the one thing I always tell them is to have a blog on their business webpage so that they can show off their expertise and add SEO to their business!

  9. I love blogs – the constant flow of new content is always interesting to me. Of course I love websites too, and visit them daily, but blogs are definitely my jam 🙂

  10. Great introduction to blogging as a business. It really is possible to make a lot of just a website, more than a hobby.

  11. This is a fantastic introduction. For me, my blog is my full time job and I absolutely love being able to do something I enjoy!
