Replacing ‘Blog’ and ‘Post’

Continuing the “vein”:http://open-dialogue.com/blog/index.php/archives/24 of thought that “Mr. Porcupine”:http://ionfish.wordpress.com/ started “a couple of days ago”:http://ionfish.wordpress.com/2005/10/30/i-hate-the-word-blog, I’ve been pondering some variations of things that to replace the word ‘blog’ in my personal vernacular. I actually found a somewhat reasonable, though inordinately clunky substitution for the word ‘post’ — perspective piece — and my train of thought progressed from there:

post
perspective piece
view piece
view sketch
view signature
essay

For ‘weblog’, my train of thought looks something like:

weblog
blog
perspective page
folio
verso
compendium
codex

I’m still not really happy with any of those options. Continuing a work in progress…

Have anything to add to the conversation?
