We need to stop using the term "blog" to refer to news sites. First the earth cooled and the dinosaurs came. Then personal web pages appeared on hosting sites like Geocities, but adding new content to them was a hassle. Then, in the early 2000s, blog platforms such as Blogger and Wordpress emerged and made it so easy to publish articles that both professional writers and amateur ranters started using them.
Unfortunately, even though it’s nothing more than a type of CMS, the term "blog" has developed a very negative connotation. Google ranks sites it thinks are "blogs" lower in search and if you tell people you work for a blog as opposed to a website, they may wrongly assume that there’s no real journalism going on.
