Blog or Website?
Posted by DDS on 28 May. Categories: Blog Posts, Design No Comments

I couldn’t even tell you how many times I’ve been asked.. “What is the difference between a blog and a website?”

The answer can be quite simple. I will break it down in bulleted points.

A Website:

  • Is Informational.
  • Speaks to customers.
  • Takes a little more time to update.
  • Is great for businesses who want to share their product, pricing, and standard informational pages.
  • Should have no more than 10 pages, as it might get confusing.

A Blog:

  • is great for personal information.
  • is great if you have a lot of information to share with people, not only customers.
  • can be used as a website when the correct settings are in place.
  • is easy to update as it goes through a platform.
  • is easy to organize by archives.
  • allows others to comment and leave feedback on certain posts (or none, if you choose).
  • is the best if you have are always changing content.

It is very easy to use a blog as a website, and easy to maintain.. but if you just want to share information, a website would also work as well. I think most people are using the blogging platform as a website because of how easy it is for them to maintain.
