Hmmm. Going to have to start at the very beginning: 1. What is a website? 2. What is a blog? 3. What is Wordpress?

1. What is a website?

The most basic definition is: A website is a location on the internet, where information is displayed. Note this: websites can come in almost any form which includes blogs.

2. What is a blog?

A blog is a location on the internet where pieces of information are published in a repetitive manner, in a usually informal tone. Thus, a blog could either be a type of website on its own, or a a component of a larger website.

3. What is WordPress?

WordPress is something called a content management system. That means, in other words, it can be used to help manage the information that is displayed at an online location which could be either a website or a blog, or both.

Why you are confused?

WordPress is the most popular method of making blogs these days. In fact, there are two versions of WordPress: one that is exclusively for non-professional blogging, and another that can be used to created literally any kind of website that you could think of.

I hope this has answered your question bro!

Wordpress is Content management system CMS while
A BLOG is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.
WordPress started out because the development of an existing blogging software b2/cafelog was discontinued by their main developers but today due to some progressions in web development, WordPress can use non-blog way

WordPress is a content management system that offers the blogging platform WordPress.com, just like Google's Blogger.com.

A blog is special kind of website mainly for sharing information and initiating conversations.

What kind of meaningless question is this? And to think this thread made the front page.

Nothing wrong in being a noob, but at least a simple Google query would answer this question and educate you in less than 1 minute. But some people are just too lazy to shake off their ignorance.

Do you realize that the answers you see in the search results from Google queries are there because at some point in time, someone somewhere asked a similar question, and someone answered? It is perfectly okay for the OP to ask his question here, since this is where he may be able to get an explanation in the way that he will understand best, as well as be able to ask further questions or seek feedback.

Life is simple mate, if the thread ain't for you, go find another.
