In my opinion, many web newbies get caught up in the whole blog vs. website debate while learning how to make a website. They are still confused as to which route they should go and I can’t blame them. With so much wrong information out on the web and arguments for both sides of the issue, which side is right?
There is no right side. All blogs are websites. Even if your blog only has one photo and a link to an email address, IT’S A WEBSITE! It would be a crappy website indeed, but a website none-the-less.

Many websites online are quietly running the WordPress content management system in the background that aren’t typically categorized as blogs. Why? Because WordPress is free and the most popular open source platform to date. It’s easy to use with hundreds of tutorials online, quick to set up, there are thousands of good looking and free themes available.
