Blog vs. Wikis

A Blog is considered to be a personal or corporate online diary on a web site in the form of an online journal. The entries are typically authored by one person and appear in the order that they are written.

A Wiki is a collaborative website that has many authors and allows anyone with access to edit, modify or delete the content that has been placed on the web site.

The major differences between the two are the amount of authors contributing content therefore the sum and scope of knowledge available. With a wiki since there are numerous authors the content is constantly being updated and changing whereas on a blog with single authorship it advances at a slower pace usually one blog at a time. In a Blog discussions are viewed as comments in a post whereas with certain wikis they can be held in a discussion forum.
