Ok so for those of you who admit that you don’t know the difference between a website and a blog I thought i would help you out with a definition I found that explains things quite well.
On the Internet, a blog (short for weblog) is a personal journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or reflect the purpose of the Web site that hosts the blog. Topics sometimes include brief philosophical musings, commentary on Internet and other social issues, and links to other sites the author favors. The essential characteristics of the blog are its journal form, typically a new entry each day, and its informal style.

And for those of you interested in a few facts here is what I found:
Blogs in existence in April 2005: 50.75 million worldwide.
And that was in April 2005, imagine how many there are today? Well in fact we can sort of calculate it, according to www.blogcount.com the number of blogs Technorati tracks doubled every 5 months for the last 20 months. Do the maths because I’m too lazy to. All I know is that is a lot of blogs, makes me feel like a very small fish in a very big sea.
