The question of which is best, a website or a blog has a different answer today than it might have a few years ago. As the saying goes “the more things change the more they stay the same”. This holds true when discussing the differences between websites and blogs.

With web logging, you need to have your own website and domain names which is a bit meticulous and difficult to do. Today, blogging is made easy. All you need to do is to sign up for free and you can proceed to blogging without any cost of maintaining your blogsite.
