    What is the difference between bloggering and writing an article.

    Very little, except that articles are often more feature rich and connect more naturally with groups with similar interests. Hubs, for a good and current example, are intended to be spun out as part of the nature of the environment and get supported internally in a managed, quality controlled world where other members can vote out garbage and spam.

    I'm not a blogger, but my perception of blogging has always been that it is an online diary. Which would basically be talking about your day or the things you saw. It would get more interesting with the more you do and know. Articles would concern more specific subjects that would, hopefully, stay relevant longer than a blog and involve more research. But I can definitely see how the differences between them are beginning to blur. With sites like HubPages, anyone can post an article, just like anyone can post a blog. So the quality of the content will depend more on the writer than the label of what is written.

    The concept of a blog really is more of a social experience where you are able to connect with those who are interested in the same topics that you are blogging about, blogs that focus on politics or parenting, are usually written by those who are passionate about the subject and they regularly contribute content that covers what is happening and what they think about it.

    Articles on the other hand usually is trying to introduce a person to a particular item or product, articles are usually written in a persuasive tone to influence the reader to take an action, either to go to a website, sign up for a newsletter or buy something.

    blogs have more space and is going to be of any length from 2-3 lines to film clips while articles are usually of more than 250 words and aim at being educational and content rich. While writing a blog or an article, one must bear in mind that blogging have much larger possibilities as compared to article writing. As blogs invite bigger scope for interactions with blog customers, web surfers and readers, it can expediently be declared that blogs are superior communication tools.

    In addition to that, the bloggers regularly get to enjoy larger communities and social networks online, making it more experiencing for the blog authors. Indeed, some of the article writers also use blog precise content in their articles, but practically, articles are never appropriate for blogs as they are most often much longer and are sometimes clicked out by the readers. Blogs are sometimes short in length and the blog visitors are infrequently in a mood to read a 300 word long article posted on a blog. Apart from that, blogging may work best with the more conversational blog entries as they're more acceptable as communication mediums.

    Blogs are variable in quality than articles
    Blogs are far more effective than articles
