A post is a particular instance of someone’s write-up. It could be a single sentence, a paragraph, or an article. It’s not called a post until it appears in a public place, like Facebook for example. A blog is a website run by one person or organization, where there is a collection of the post.

What is the difference between a blog and a post?

The most common type belongs to a person, and this person writes articles which they post there. (Notice post used a verb; it comes from placing posters on wooden posts.) Each article is a post. Posts are sometimes called blogs.

Writing a post or posts is called blogging. But the difference in between both of them is that you can have a blog website, where you make posts. The blog is something with a theme, such as an author’s website blog about his books.  

Each individual entry in the blog, which can be made on a daily, weekly, monthly or intermittent basis, is called a post or a blog post. The name “blog” comes from “web log” originally, or a log on the Web where you make posts.   So I guess your confusions with the terms got much clearer.
