A journal entry is a record for your own personal recollection of the events and experiences and thoughts of your life. A journal entry on Death of a Salesman might records Biff's personal realizations and epiphanies about his father or his reaction to his father's death.

A blog entry is meant to be a public record--intentionally shared--of the events, experiences, thoughts of your life. A blog entry for Farewell to Arms might include a description of the landscape and a symbolic reaction to it.
