All along I thought wordpress was a blogging site. I have a client who said she had a wordpress site hosted by bluehost.com. I was sure that she only had her domain with bluehost that pointed to her wordpress blog. Bluehost has on there home page that they have wordpress. Now I am totally confused. What is wordpress?
Learning is so unproductive...
The more I learn the more questions I have!
Therefore I am going backwards.

To really see the "difference"...
www.wordpress.com - Allows users to set up their own hosted blog.
www.wordpress.org - Distribution and support site for the Wordpress software.

I understand that you are confused. WordPress is a website (blog) management platform and CMS. a Wordpress CMS based site would be hosted with any hosting provider who supports it (99.9% do). However the Wordpress founder and owner created Wordpress.com to offer both free and paid services based on his website management platform.
