A typical Web site has a home page that links to sub-pages within the site.
Think about a "normal Web site." It usually has a home page, with links to lots of sub-pages that have more detail. nidkidos is like this, with thousands of information pages all organized under a home page. A small business site follows the same format -- it might have a home page and five or 10 sub-pages. Most traditional Web sites follow this format. If the site is small, it is sort of like an online brochure. If it is large, it is like an electronic encyclopedia.
A blog is much simpler:
A blog is normally a single page of entries. There may be archives of older entries, but the "main page" of a blog is all anyone really cares about.
A blog is organized in reverse-chronological order, from most recent entry to least recent.
A blog is normally public -- the whole world can see it.
The entries in a blog usually come from a single author.
The entries in a blog are usually stream-of-consciousness. There is no particular order to them. For example, if I see a good link, I can throw it in my blog. The tools that most bloggers use make it incredibly easy to add entries to a blog any time they feel like it.
