Cant think of any ideas for this.

Currently im using a pencil icon to add a new post to my cms, but i need an icon that will show how many posts a blog has.

The pencil icon doesnt scale down well enough for what im doing.

Any other suggestions?




The icon currently being used:

small pencil

If your blog is tailored to vehicles get creative maybe use a vehicle:

Could use a street sign:

Personally when it comes to designing blogs and icons I try to create a custom set designed for that site because I find it adds a better quality to the site. Some could argue that it may be harder to understand what the icon may mean because some icons just have a global understanding to them.

If that doesn't work some people I've seen use:

The above would probably be better in a silhouette.

Thinking "Blog"....

  • A Megaphone
  • A Radio

  • A Post-It
  • A Newspaper
