      The article is intended to be informational purposes,and not with the intent of taking a stab at the internet. I believe everyone is a noob at anything, as there is always something more tolearn than what youknewbefore.So, the first thing younotice after you wander around the internet for a few hours is that you notice tons of websites and blogs sprawling petabytes of bandwidth.
      The first question that arises to many of them is what exactly a website is and what is a blog ?

      Many of them tendto confuse onewith the other and interpret ananswer oftheir own will. So,let’s just clear the air and reveal the difference between a blog and a website.
      The basic difference between a blog and a websiteis theoretically the differencein how data is being presented – the format. Apart from that, in practicality there is a fine line between a blog and a website, not much toponderabout however.

      There is somekey differences betweenthem and the=is should clarify as towhat youshould gowith for creating and publishing your content.
      NOTE:Please don’t ask which is the easiest way to make money. Because there is none. It takes a lot of patience,persistence and hardwork to make money on the internet.

      What is a Blog?
      A blog is basically a web log that a blogger makes use for chronological listing of blog posts .

      A blog has the most recent content shown first followed by the previously updated content.A blog can be easily startedwith services like , , etc.and do not need you to start something from the scratch, providing you with the entire system including design templates.

      A blog thrives onnew content and more updated it is, the more attention itwillget. That doesn’t mean tons of scraps will equal gold mine.Quality and regularly updated content are examples of a good blog.

      What is a Website?
      A websitein return can be anything. Anything on the internet presented in HTML/CSS or Java/Javascript/Python/Php, etc. comprises of a website.A website may be complimented with a blog,but the home page wouldbe more for browsing other pages and not just posts. Fullyfunctional and eye-catchy websites are usually costconsuming tasks as youwould have to buildfrom the base up. However with platforms and services like Adobe Dreamweaver,you could build your own website.
      A blog can be a part of a website,in the form of a separate page and linked tothe homepage. A website is a bigger aspect and its limitations are little to none.A website could be anything from a single page to a 1 Billion- users social network (Say, Facebook).

      Doyou need a blog or a Website?
      What you exactly want is what you need.Firstly, decide what do you exactly intend to do? If you are more concerned with creating contenton a regular basis for others toread, you should gowith a blog.
      If you want full featured online portalwith many abilities and infinitesimal possibilities, you should go with a website. If youhave a company,thentoo youmust have a website combined with a blog. But make sure you know a good deal of coding before you jump infor makinga websiteorshellout a little money and the coding work.One thing which you should know that most popular blogging platform ‘WordPress’ can always be use as a Website,and youwillget advantage ofSEOand easy management.
