Bring Back Blogging ➝

Chris Coyier:

I wonder if the term “blog” has too much baggage. Too much history for it to really catch on again and make a dent. 

Maybe “publish your own feed” is a better framing. “Own your RSS.” A feed doesn’t care what it contains. It is content-style agnostic. It’s just timestamped HTML, in a way. Put some audio in it, and it’s a podcast. A feed could be exactly what you would have tweeted before tweeting became cringe.

I like the terms “weblog”, “web publishing”, and “online publishing”.
