Blog vs Static Website is there a difference between a blog and a Web site? Yes and no.

There are two types of sites.  Blogs and static websites.  Blogs are organized by dates and categorized by recent post/content displays.  A static site, the content is organized by content and not by date or categories.

To develop a static HTML website from scratch.  You will need to use a software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage.  Others use Notepad.  Notepad is all you need if you have the know how to write HTML code.

Blogs on the other hand is designed to handle easy content updates.  I use a WordPress blog.  It has built in functionality to easily update, share and archive content in your site.  Blog post show up on post page.  Clicking on the headline of a post will take you to a permalink page that only displays that one specific post and comment.  Add a category and tags to your post.  Now your readers have the ability to find anything you have written.

Blogs have the ability to post pages as the homepage, but you can create a static page for your homepage.  This is very simple to change.  All you do is go to general page in your dashboard and click on your radio button to the static page you created.

WordPress plugins.  Their are thousands of different plugins made by developers that can be used freely.  There are plugins like SEO pack, Google page rank, xml sitemap, super captcha plugin and many more.

If you regularly add content to your blog daily.  It will be indexed more frequently by search engines like Google.

Blog vs Static websites.  You must know by now I prefer using a blog than a static site.  I have created many static sites in the past.  But I find it so much user-friendly and there are so many features you can use to customize your site.  I highly recommend using a WordPress blog than a static site.
