Default Sponging and Distress Ink Blending - what's the diff?

Been reading a lot of posts about sponging and looking at some beautiful cards recently using the technique.

What makes sponging different from using Distress Inks with a blender tool?

Just the use of the sponge? Or are they basically the same-ish thing -- the use of something to apply ink to paper in order to color it, whether in bands or swaths or all-over or gradations or patterns or whatever (as opposed to using a stamp to create an image).

I work with Distress Inks already (if you want you can read my rant about the ridiculous cost of the blender tool in the Tools section), so wondering if sponging is something else, in which case I ought to try it.

Forgive me. I'm really still a newbie. You have to explain everything to me.
