(For those unconcerned the first link is to my personal SITE (check the highlight) while the other two are for my BLOGS (check highlight again))
SITE: Representation for something you are or your company or your business or others’ in the form of web pages on the internet.
BLOG: Space for some ideas you put or anything anyone has to speak out on some things in life, anecdotes, ideas or trash (u may say crap), or even maybe works.
People can adjudicate physical things categorically very sleekly in a much treacherous way that I happen to wonder what losses they incur to do the same for the above terminologies. For example:
Person1: Hey man! You seem to be busy reading something ..
Person 2: Yeah man, got this today.
Person1: Which book is it.
Person2: (Eyebrow raised and nodding head as if he was sitting on the top of a throne like a king talking to his jester) … Oh man..Its not a book (Really!) ..Its a Novel (that was tough..indeed!!)
Person1: Oh,,,sarry (Pleading guilty)
Now do u see how people differentiate a NOVEL from a BOOK. That propels me in a zone where I too feel comfortable to refer to proper terminologies in the case of the internet. There are portals, blogs, sites, forums,e-shops etc and they should not be ever related by a single word viz. a SITE (rotating fist)
Okay, now said and done the reason for wasting my time writing this post:
