What is the exact difference between Article and Blog?
"Usually we use the term “Article” and “Blog” synonymously. Generally, articles offer more information and greater depth than blog posts. Articles provide thoroughly researched and detailed information. As such, those making this distinction may expect them to be longer. They may provide informed, well-developed opinions on subjects relevant to the website on which they will be published. They also might take a more formal or professional tone On the contrary, a blog post may be less formal than an article. While the tone of a blog can address the sensitive or serious nature of a topic, those distinguishing between a blog and article may write the blog post in a more conversational manner. Length may differ — some blog posts are a few hundred words, though others can be much longer. Blog posts also may be more readily shareable, given their shorter length and informal tone."
Why do I share my code ?
"Sharing code and your thoughts is a great way to not only help others but also to become a better coder. With many lakhs of people downloading your code, you will not only get a lot of positive feedback, but also bug fixes, free testing, and more often than not, suggestions on how to make the code even better. It also encourages others to share their code, which in turn gives you access to an even larger base of free source code."

You can submit the article/blog in two ways: You can mail us in a .doc or .txt file, and wait till we will share the following (submit.article@mindstick.com). Or you can easily go to the Developer Section and contribute yourself in the Article, Blog or the other mentioned appropriate options.

It may be the issues of interest of the author or it may be correlated to some current issues. The topic can either be serious or non-serious; same goes for its pitch and writing style.

A like vote will definitely motivate the author in its progress and to write such good contents over and over.
How User Reputations work?
Reputation is something you gain - or lose - as you contribute to our communal knowledge base.
