A website is a place where advertising,buying and selling take place. if someone need to purchase anything online they are expect to go to website.
For a quick understanding:- every blog is a website but not all website are blog

What is blogging

Blogging is the act of maintaining and publishing of content in a blog
Every article / content in a blog are called blog post. And blog owners are called blogger
Blogging involves writing skills, search engine optimization, social media marketing and many more

History of blogging

Blogging has started since the late 90s and it is derived from the word “weblog” and later shorten to the word “blog”
In the late 90 people started the creation of running personal web pages where they published regular updates content about their activities
The most popular tool launched then is Blogger.com  in 1999 and later it was acquired by google
In the 2003 WordPress was launched and till now it has became the most popular popular blogging platform

But basically people use blog to journal about their daily personal lives or give out commentaries on social, political, spiritual or other related dimensions.
