    Blog means too personal write ups.  We can express anything in a blog and it can be too personal as well. Your thoughts, dreams, travel experience, love, ideas, anything. But Hub is different.  Here even though we can write anything, we should control us to keep the writings not to be too personal.  Our aim is to educate or make aware a fellow hubber some points.  So you need to use a language suiting that purpose. Also take care to keep your contents too personal or self centred. But such types of controls are not there for Blogs, there you can freely open up your mind.  So the point is that when you wish to write some very personal things, you just go for blogging.  Hope things are clear now.

      Thank you for responding to my query. You seem to have missed an important point. What may seem 'too personal' to you may not seem so to another.

    Blogging is almost like a diary entry. It is your personal opinion, your personal experiences, your perspective on any particular subject.

    Non-fiction Hubs are informative articles on any subject, and not quite so personal. Fiction Hubs can be stories, poems etc., although I think non-fiction makes more money.

    A blog consists of your personal thoughts and views as they relate to your own life and experiences.  I hub is a more objectively written article that may include some of the above to enhance it, but is not totally about you, personally.

    HP is a business and therefore they know that people generally could care less about you, personally and therefore will not want to read your blog articles.  When this happens, nobody earns...thus the philosophy of "no blogs".

    Sir blogging is not permitted on HubPages. Is only permitted to writ hubs.  For the writing of personal thoughts and such one must initiate a blog using a service such as Blogspot.com or Wordpress.com for the writing of personnel thoughts.
