  26. 27. Parra Productions 2009 Static - For the most part websites stay the same. Current - Updated several times a week if not more often. Must have a bit of technical knowledge in coding. No coding knowledge necessary . Website pages are broken up by Static Pages and Categories …. Products, prices, articles, pictures, etc… Blogs are written more like a journal that is broken up by dates. Usually the most recent entry is on top. When a Website is updated there is usually no feature that automatically notifies your readers of the update . Blogs are usually setup with a RSS feed for viewers to subscribe to.
