Diff is a new blog for Wikimedians. As they write, "The scope of the Diff blog is news about the Wikimedia movement, for the Wikimedia movement. Check out our first two posts, on Wiki Her Story and Juneteenth." What's interesting about this blog is that submissions are reviewed. "After you have set up your account, you can create a new article and submit it for review." So that sort of makes it a publication. I can see a niche here for formal recognition of blog posts - if I were to do a similar thing, what I'd change is that I'd require posts to have been published on the author's blog first and then nominated for inclusion in the reviewed blog by the authors of previous posts in the blog.
