Is the term blog totally outdated?

That question came up in a conversation with participants in the Communications Director Mentoring Program, and several people agreed that it is.

The word comes from the combination of web + log = blog and was first used in the late 90s.  Many people still use it (including us) and there are categories of writers referred to as food bloggers and travel bloggers, for example.

But if you don’t want to use it for whatever reason, what might you call that section of your website where you post content in reverse chronological order and put things in categories?

Here are a few ideas, depending on what you are actually writing:

  • Latest News
  • Portal
  • Library
  • Journal
  • Resources
  • Stories
  • Recent Updates
  • Learning
  • Insights
  • In the Know
  • Reading Room
  • Guide
  • Articles
  • Tips and Advice

We’re sticking with blog for now.
