This was a great post. I had a conversation just yesterday with my 20-year-old daughter about blogs and the difference between an opinion piece, essay and blog post, all of which I write. It's hard to explain to a Gen Z what that means, I learned. I also realized as I talked that, for me, the term "blog" seems stale. Maybe we need a new word? (I'm only half joking.)
