An article is a kind of post that typically has more structure than a simple note. Articles usually have a name (title), multiple paragraphs, and often subheadings, blockquotes, embedded images, and a footer of references or citations.
How to mark up?
<article class="h-entry"> <h1 class="p-name">Microformats are amazing</h1> <p>Published by <a class="p-author h-card" href="http://example.com">W. Developer</a> on <time class="dt-published" datetime="2013-06-13 12:00:00">13<sup>th</sup> June 2013</time></p> <p class="p-summary">In which I extoll the virtues of using microformats.</p> <div class="e-content"> <p>Blah blah blah</p> </div> </article>
The core difference to a note is that there is a title, marked up as
p-name, that's different from the content.
If the article has embedded images or photos, where the photos are intended to be displayed interspersed with the text, then do not add the
u-photo class to the images, as that will turn the article into a photo post.

- She intends to import all of her findable writing from across the Internet, which goes back to 2001-03-15, but her earliest blog posts might be considered long notes rather than articles.
Max Dietrich has been publishing articles using Strapi since ~ 2018.
- He first posted articles using WordPress and after some trying around decided to migrrate all articles to Strapi.
ID markup for paragraphs etc
Marking up paragraphs with unique id attributes may enable more granular referencing for quotations within them, and possibly more granular comments as well.
Blogger introduced "titles" to blog posts in 1999? E.g.

Medium supports articles with a header image, a name, and minor style-editor.
