You have came to this page so I assume you are new to everything. So my explanation will be similar to be the process of explaining “what dinosaur is ?” to a child. You are about to get the most clear picture of difference between website and a blog.
What a website is?
Website can be any webpage you are watching on the internet. The contents of the pages can vary from news, entertainment, online education, real facts and many more. In fact every page on internet is a part of website. Let me remind you one childish example..
All iphone are smartphone but all smartphones are not iphone. (They can be Samsung, Redmi, Nokia, etc also.)
All blogs are website but all websites are not a blog.
What a blog is?
A blog is a page or a part of a website, which keeps on updating time to time with new content. Then your next question will be “news websites also keeps on updating from time to time. Are those news websites comes under the category of blogs?”
The answer is NO. They just tell you the news that is happening outside in the world. but they don’t interact with you to start any conversation. Here comes the difference. From a blog you have a place where you can interact with different people from around the globe on some common interest topics.
What is motive of making a website?
A website is made to reach out to the people to deliver news, entertainment, socializing, promoting business, providing service, etc. Since you are in 21st century so you almost know example website of each category. But for extremely newbies let me give a brief example..
providing service – Internet Banking
promoting business – A company website
socializing – Facebook (of course everyone’s favorite)
entertainment – youtube , etc
What is the motive of making a blog?
Starting a blog means to expose your life experiences with the world and expressing your thoughts to people. Sometimes if a person has extreme knowledge in any field and he wants to share it with people then he writes those things on blog. The people who are interested they will read his/her content and will get free knowledge.
And last but not least. If users like the contents of blog then traffic will increase to that blog which in turn will result in online income too.
