If you think there is a difference, how do you decide whether to write an article or a post?
"Form follows function" is a good design mantra to adhere to.
Blog posts are traditionally used to post time-sensitive information, eg "I wrote a new blog post to update you about [x] topic" or something similar.
Articles on a more static site would typically be written about non-changing topics that don't need to include regular updates about new information. Although nowadays, pretty much every beginner who starts their own website uses Wordpress blogs even when they intend to make a non-blog website.
