A blog is like a website but in a journal format and arranged according to date. Whereas a website would usually appear with content presented by category, like DigitalFilipino, blogs on the other hand get presented according to date, although some would have categories, making it appear like a journal or diary.
Blog owners normally post articles or short notes that has the information they want to share, personal or otherwise.
Companies use blogs as a means to disseminate information and keep in touch with their customers. Although blogs can also be used to act as a website by itself where information on products and services being offered by companies can be presented through it.
