That was my thought: when it comes to grant renewal, published in Nature
is going to sound so much better than "published on my blog", even if
ten leading figures in your field left a thumbs up in the comments.

I do not understand how you are getting from to "my blog".

I'd say that having a paper on is qualitatively better than a
downloadable document on a home page, which in turn is qualitatively
better than a blog entry.

Generally speaking, anything that requires more thoroughness ranks
qualitatively above anything that requires less.

Writing a scholarly paper in the proper format, with abstract, glossary,
citations and references, introduction, elaboration, thesis, conclusion
etc etc, LaTeXed, is going to be more thorough than some paper
written up over a weekend without the scientific rigor applied and
probably using a word processor.

Likewise, writing that paper over the weekend, even without the scientifc
rigor applied, even when written in a word processor is likely going to be
more more thorough or at least perceived to be more thorough than a blog
entry on a blog.
