Website or blog-which do i need for my business? This is question that is always asked by new bloggers or business owners. The choice of what to use depends on the purpose for which you want to use it for. Read on while we answer the question for ourselves.
Most time so many people often use the term “website” and “blog” interchangeable assuming that the both term have the same meaning. Let’s look at the definition of a website and also the definition of a blog, and then we will know if the both term have the same meaning.
Website and Blog
Website: A website (static) literally can be defined as a webpage that has static pages as its home page, about page and product page with a static content in it. The word static is used because the content is not updated on a regular basis and they simply don’t follow a chronological order.
Sometimes, most people do integrate a blog within the pages of the website (or domain).
The idea behind this is that search engines love fresh content and the content of your blog get’s indexed by search engines daily (depending on your configuration). So when people search the web and are directed to your article, after reading your article and they find it interesting, then you are sure they are just one click away to your homepage.
Blog: While a blog according to Wikipedia is (a short form of the expression web log) an information or discussion site that consists of random entries called “posts” that is usually updated with fresh content regularly which follow a chronological order and the languages used on a blog are often easier to understand and also a blog allow for commenting with the basic intention of engaging its readers.
There are many more definitions to both website and blog, but from the above definitions you can clearly see that a website displays a static content in no chronological order while blogs display fresh contents from the newest to the oldest, list order or even randomly (depending on your configuration).
So If you are among those who have been looking for a means or measure to express themselves online, share thoughts, promote a product, brand or a company, either you want to talk about yourself, your hobby, your work life experience, your happy or sad times as either a single or a married parents, you want to share some information on mobile technology and specification, auto technology, science, religion, politics, news, insurance, real estate, fashion and designs, photography, habits and how to stop / grow them, ways of life and what have you, then I strongly recommend that you need a blog.
Tip: Starting up a blog isn’t much of a big deal as many have assumed it to be. Blog can be setup within 10-20 minutes or less and the next is you are up and running (posting content).
But if you have a product or you work for an organization, company, church, and so on, and you want to create an online presence for your organization or company, then I recommend that you use website for your project and it is also a good idea if you integrate a blog in your domain as well which I have highlighted the benefit of that above.
I believe that at this point and based on what we have discussed above, I have been able to help you make a choice between website or blog which do you need to start your business?
It’s Your Turn: Now it’s your turn, I will like to know your thought about what we have discussed above and also tell me other factors I didn’t remember to add before choosing either a blog or a website.
