How do Articles differ from Blogs?
Are there distinct differences or are we talking about essentially the same things?
Well, you see blogs are websites that people usually talk about their lives, opinions or other things. Articles are written pieces that do essentially the same thing. The difference being that a blog has a host of things while an article is just one thing.
A blog is simply adding your thoughts to a running conversation. You don't need to state the topic or explain anything other than your own thoughts.
An Article has to begin by stating a topic and then explore that topic or some aspect of the topic. It should have a beginning a middle and an end.
A blog is basically all middle. Whoever started the blog has given the begining and it may or may nit have any end, most blogs tend to veer of topic and split until they just die out.
To me a blog post is an entry about your life, or a musing, or something random that can serve absolutely no purpose.
A hub, on the other hand, should have some sort of purpose to help or inform others.
Articles are lengthier than blog posts and are more subject describing than the blog posts.
A blog can be like this:
I went to the store today, and people were being, like, totally mean and stuff. I hate mean people. mean people totally, like, they suck - and stuff, you know what I mean? mean sucky people suck.
/\ that's a blog. I see blogs like that. That crap won't cut it, and won't make a penny in twenty years.

I have some questions for the experienced bloggers here.I used to have a Bubblews account that I deleted when their dishonest practices became clear to me. I was careful to copy my 70 posts into a word document to use another time. The posts are reasonably well written, original, evergreen, and...

Iv'd recently had two articles denied from Owlcation. The first is a book review (I read on another forum that that's where book reviews should be submitted, although it doesn't make sense to me). The second is a photo play-by-play of an nearly extinct bug working in my yard, The American Burying...
