Type of websites

Hi everyone! :upside_down_face:
I’m new to web design and everything related to this issue.
Recently I’ve read this article https://ester.co/blog/15-most-popular-types-of-websites
Can somebody explain to me the core difference between personal website and blog? Bc they seem to be quite similar, as for me …

Hello and congratulations on starting your journey in web design!

A personal website (most of the time) is about a specific person or group of people like an artist, band, etc. that talks about that person or group of people. A good example would be a portfolio website that shows examples of work made by a certain person or group of people. Portfolio sites are a type of personal website because it gives you information about that person or group and the experience that they have in what they do.

A blog, on the other hand, is more informational rather than personal. Many businesses run blogs to showcase their expertise on a certain subject. However, that doesn’t mean an individual can’t start a blog. If you have expertise on something that you are very much passionate about, the you can start a blog on that topic.

The link you provided gives a bit more information in detail about the two. Hope this helps!

Got it! Thanks a lot. :upside_down_face:
I really should explore more.

Are you wanting to make a site or are you just exploring for now? If you’re looking into making a website for yourself, I highly recommend you get familiar with WordPress. It was originally designed to be a platform for blogs, but it has evolved over the years and can now be used to make any kind of site.

haha, I think blog is just for writing articles what we like, but the website is for selling products and earn money for the company most of the time.
