What Do We Call Articles on Wizzley?

I've just been asked the question and we never did find a consensus, did we?    I told the newcomer to our site that she has arrived still early enough to contribute to the debate.

I've seen our work called articles, posts, Wizzles, Wizzes, Wizzs, blogs, journals, stories... what do you call them?

I tend to say 'article', if I'm talking to someone who doesn't write here; and Wizzle, if it's a Wizzley author.

I have been using "article" but if I had to opt for one of those names you gave, I think I'd pick wizzle, since I like to think wizzes (whizzes) is actually what we, the writers here, are :D.

That's true we don't have a name for the articles posted here yet - Officially I mean. 

According to me they should be termed a 'Whizz' as that sounds good, it's related to the name of the site (Wizzley), a Whizz is a person who's skilled and that's what most of you here are

 

Also I guess wizzley is created after a sort of wizard or magic background? I say this considering that it's got 4 starts around the name as the logo. Plus if you remember our first live chat forum the one by Jerrico also had a wizard :)

Or is that Wizards, whizzing out new Wizzles?

The possibilities are endless.

Brandon, I'm so unobservant.  I hadn't even noticed the magic in the logo!

They are wizzles, from the german word wizzley :) just based on a consensus of what I've seen this past year in posts, comments, people describing their articles in, well articles, - I've seen almost a full penetration into the "Wizzles (plural) Wizzle (singular)"

It's in the dictionary:

Wizzle- v.To wiz; intelligent writing; intelligent formatting with flare; to inform; to shock intellectually; adj. wizzling, n. wizzler (sometimes mistaken with the slang term "to Wizz" which is completely off topic.

One is said to wizzle when they are not just writing articles but articles with impact. One has a wizzle when one is writing one in draft state, one has "wizzled" when completing the wizzle... also "I have a great wizzle" means you wrote, completed, published, and have at least one like, comment, or response of any kind to the post. "I'm writing a wizzle" means your in the middle of what can only be compared to the moment just before a nuclear reaction, where the wizzle is the reaction in progress. 

That's all I got before coffee....

No official rule here. (That's the beauty of it.)

Call 'em wizzles or wizzes or whatever you like.

To paraphrase the "most interesting man in the world":

Stay playful, my friends!

I usually refer to them as pages or articles, because I've never been sure if they are Wizzles, Wizards or Wizzes. :)

Wondered when someone was going to come up with that!


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

Of course, we're all focusing on the Wizz part, how about the 'ley'?   Field, meadow... skipping free and wild through the undergrowth...

I'm writing a meadow!

Ok, I can see why we don't focus on that part!

Wizz (in context lol) is intelligence, ley often confused with lay again off topic, is actually Prussian for mad genius or more accurately intelligence utilized or networked intelligently (don't look Prussia up, it doesn't exist anymore so I can make up whatever I want from there buahahaha :))...  isn't a ley also a hawiian term or symbolic phrase for welcome? The plot thickens....

It thickens yet more when we remember ley lines.  

I'm not sure what it's thickened into yet, as I'm typing as I think.  But lines in this context is surely the written sentences.

(I do love it when things get silly!  LOL)

I forgot who suggested it back then in our beginning days, but I really like the title "Wizzleyans" for us authors.

G'day mate Ima wizzilian (has an interesting sound to it with an Australian accent Jerrico)

 

I have been calling articles on Wizzley.com wizzles since I started here. That's an unofficial term though. I also like it that it is informal, then we are not locked into any official 'rule'.
