What is the difference between a blog and an article? They both have distinct features that make them unique and stand out. Let’s take a closer look and examine each one…
1 A blog is mostly your own opinion, whereas in an article your opinion is not allowed.
2 In a blog there are typically no interviews, but an article contains interviews and research from credible experts and firms.
3 In regards to word count, an average post ranges from 300-600 words, whereas an article typically goes up to 1,200 words or more.
4 Blogs are built around SEO keywords, it is absolutely essential for Google ranking, but it doesn’t matter with article writing.
5 The spelling and grammar must be impeccable in an article! A blog does not have to be as exact though.
6 The writing style goes from casual in a blog to more sophisticated in an article.
7 A blog is self-published, but an article requires an editor’s keen eye to clean it up for you and be published by a magazine.
8 Pay rates are very different. A freelancer is paid a flat fee and usually very low for posts, but an article is much higher at up to a dollar per word.
