Alternatives for “blog post”

If you run or write for a blog, or talk about blogs, you’ll want to refer to the content of blogs. Publications on blogs (perhaps mostly outside news organisation blogs) are commonly referred to as “blog post” (I guess news organisation may call online-only content “articles” too).

Because I don’t particularly like this phrase, I had a little brainstorm and wrote down some alternatives. In order of thought:

  • bulletin
  • alert
  • post
  • publication
  • letter
  • essay
  • entry
  • issue
  • report
  • note
  • proceeding
  • paper
  • review
  • record
  • part
  • article
  • brief
  • column
  • opinion
  • memo
  • memorandum
  • view
  • announcement
  • document
  • thing
  • story
  • text
  • section
  • chapter
  • blog
  • message
  • line
  • piece
  • memoir(s)
  • item
  • journal entry

I am still working (a bit) on a redesign and custom theme for this blog, but have already decided to go with “message” in the abbreviated form “Mess.”. Lots of “mess.-es” create a mess, which translates to Dutch as “Bende”. This concludes another mess. for this mess.
