A blog is a sort of online journal. It is updated daily or weekly or whenever the author desires. A wiki is a platform that is meant for anyone to update in real time. A blog is owned by an individual whereas wiki is being updated by many people around the world.

For blogs, the timeline is more important. For wikis, when an article was published matters less, because articles are supposed to be updated as new information becomes available. Blog posts are usually one persons' opinion, followed optionally by comments. Wiki articles represent consensus, but can have an associated discussion/talk page.

A wiki is a superset of a blog. A wiki can host a blog, but not viceversa. Too emulate a blog in a wiki, the wiki page needs to be protected against editing by other users than the author, and a comment widget (e.g. Disqus) needs to be added to the page.

A wiki allows multiple users to create, modify and organize web page content in a collaborative manner.

A blog is a Web site that maintains ongoing posts. A blog is frequently updated,a personal Web site featuring diary-type commentary and links to articles or other Web sites.

Wiki:

- Multiple Authors,

- Edited by a group or team,

- Contains links to other Wiki pages,

- Continuousy changing and growing rapidly,

- Many-to-many communication.

Blogs:

- Usually a single author. Sometimes can have multiple contributors,

- Author posts, user comments,

- Opinion Sharing ,

- One-to-many content.

A blog is a highly personal website. It revolves around what the owner of the blog feels like sharing with the world. Many blogs also allow visitors to leave a comment and discuss the topic the blog owner has published in his/her blog.A wiki is a website dedicated to providing the general public access to as much information about as many different aspects as possiblesurroundingoneparticular topic or related topics. The information is meant to be objective and informative.Discussion forums are made for each and every visitor to be able to start a topic which they want to discuss with other visitors of the website. The information can range from recreational to informative to instructive, and is highly subjective in nature.
