Home from vacation, blog and website differences

I enjoyed the refreshing change (temperature wise and blue ocean views) that a short jaunt to the West coast (Newport Beach, CA) provided. This is the first opportunity I've had to blog. Glad to be back!

I'm motivated to do research about the difference between blogs and websites (partly work related and partly to help my readers learn what's new and good). I do need input from you out there, so hope I'll get some feedback, especially from those of you I know look at my blog, but haven't commented. Here's what I've discovered so far:

          content based on its timely nature
          journal format
          informal style (usual purpose is part social and partly to network)
          spans one or two topics at the most

         content based on a structured or static basis
         professional or business purpose rather than social
         provides clear information to a specific audience and/or for a definite purpose like book-selling
         features good website navigation and is updated less frequently than a blog

Please let me know what you've discovered about blogs and websites. And a Big thanks for reading my blog post today.

The quote for today comes from

“It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”
 Dale Carnegie quotes (American lecturer, author, 1888-1955)



  1. Your friend Cheryl seems to know her subject well. I'll leave the content pieces to her for now. On the artistic side, however, I know that color and pictures draw me in to a site or blog. For me that's the first important focus, and then I look at what it says and is about. That picture of you enjoying yourself on the beach would be a perfect enticement for me to read your blog. That is one fun person. People are drawn to smiles and fun!

  2. Oops! I apologize to your friend for calling her Cheryl.


Please comment and ask questions. I love to hear from you. If you need to reach me via email, email at

Hope you enjoyed your visit and will return again. Be well. Live well. Lead a colorful life! Warm regards, Nan
