On Music, I saw this little bar on the right:

A blog post with the MSE icon next to it and then two Hot Meta Posts

This is weird. I don't read things closely and thus didn't see "Blog", so I clicked on it thinking "hmm, is this some very unusual announcement?" based on it having the blue-and-white Meta logo.

I found this:

Screenshot of a bit of the blog post

That's no Meta!! This is a leftover icon from the thing where non-Meta sites would show Meta posts on the right; its alt text is "Meta Stack Exchange". Can this be changed to the Stack Overflow logo or something to make it clear that these are SO blog posts?

This has been changed, and now shows a pencil icon instead:

blog icon is pencil

    I've clicked on this pencil dozens of times, but I still can't get it to display the revision history... Mar 7, 2020 at 0:22
