Blogs vs. Websites

Why is this an important question? The question for teachers is no longer should I have a web presence, but what type of web presence should I have. A blog is a website, but it’s a special kind. Blogs are more dynamic versus a static web site, they are updated often and allow for comments from readers. Information on the blog is arranged in a chronological order – with the latest entry at the beginning of the page. Most blog entries are tagged so that they are easily searchable.

Blogs and websites can have links, images, and multimedia files embedded, in this way they are similar. They can also both be “followed” via an RSS feed. I have compiled a few articles for you to peruse about blogs and websites. Funny enough, some of them are blogs and some are websites.
