    Blog - is pure text based and you're just going to read it

    Vlog - is taking videos of what you're trying to do or what to say and people may watch it

    Another important thing to mention is that a blog may include audio clips and sound without video, whereas a vlog always includes video and it's usually with sound when it does. There's no such thing as a mlog or slog lol...if there were, it'd probably be labeled as a podcast anyway! But hopefully that helps, too.

    Basically, the difference between these two types of content creators is that some writers in blogs and others record videos. To understand better remember a bit of history.

    Bloggers

    The blog comes from the word weblog, which was invented in 1997 to define a site where people wrote a kind of blog. A couple of years later the term blog was adopted and popularized. One of the characteristics that began to differentiate a blog from other websites is that the content appears in reverse chronological order, the newest first. Something that is now common in other services, especially social networks. At the end of the last century, many people opened their blog and the concept of blogger emerged, someone who writes personal opinions on any number of topics. The Blogger service was also created, which would later be bought by Google. In the middle of the last decade, the blogs stopped being popular due to the popularization of the social networks, like Twitter and Facebook, reason why the number of bloggers was reduced considerably.

    Vloggers

    With the arrival of video platforms, especially YouTube, vloggers began to emerge, that is, people with a video blog, who instead of writing tell the camera their ideas and opinions on any topic. Currently, many vloggers have become celebrities and their audience is composed mostly of teenagers who every week waiting for a couple of videos posted on YouTube. In fact, a synonym for vlogger is youtube. Vloggers, who certainly repeat the same formulas, also represent an opportunity for exposure for the brands that hire them as ambassadors.

    The difference between these two is that a Vlog is a weblog that uses video as its primary presentation format while a Blog is a website that allows users to share opinions, reflect, and discuss various topics in the form of journals or news and even comment to others' post/comments.
    Users who manages Blogs are called Bloggers who use various website platforms such as WordPress, Weebly, Wix, Blogger, Tumblr among others to design and manage their Blogs. On the other side, users who manage Vlogs are called Vloggers who use website platforms like Ziggeo, YouTube, WordPress, or Medium among other sites to design and manage their Vlogs.

    A true sense of feeling close to reality. I think that is the main difference for me between VLOG and BLOG. Technically speaking, yes we know it already that Vlogging is utilizing videos while Blogging is mainly text. But comparing between the two if will be given a certain topic, like for example, a place - if it will be vlogged, you will be able to experience the feeling of being there because you have to enjoy watching what the real place is and not just imagining what it could be like for the blogging. Yes, blogging may post some pictures as well, but you cannot see the real reaction of the person giving details about it. That for me is important and I am subjected to get influenced by the reaction as well from the vlog.

    Blog and Vlog are both evident nowadays and one good way to express ourselves and inform other people about something as well. The difference between the two is that form of medium done to be able to share it to the netizens. Blog is expressing our thoughts on something with the use of words and constructing it in paragraph form while vlog is expressing ourselves and what we know that we want to let other people know as well with the use of video and some editing skills in videos. It is more personal and somewhat timely.

    Vlogs are just video version of Blogs.
    As smartphones and portable cams increase in popularity, recording videos has never been easier. So, what better way to maximize the ease of recording videos is through Vlogging.

    In my opinion, vlogging connects to audience more because you get to hear the voice and the author himself/herself.
