An Incremental Blog
I understand blogs as a flexible form of web publishing, and
consequently I have blog posts like this one, which pushes boundaries
of the blog style. This post is in a blog format, but
its main purpose is to be a landing page for blogs; i.e.,
page; and as another purely functional
purpose, it is an index of all the posts in this series in a reverse
There is a larger plan for this page than just to provide a combined
landing-index page, and so more content follows below.
(I am really tempted to write "landing/index page" here, but will not
and will leave discussion about my pet peeve use of slash in compounds
such as "and/or" for another day.)
Should Blogs be Incremental?
"Incremental" in this sense means that a blog is significantly updated
from time to time, including a possibility of never having a final version.
I think that blog posts should not be generally incremental, but there
can be exceptions, which should be clearly indicated. Another example
is posting a blog in development. A hope is that over time the
majority of blog posts will become complete and stable, and thus
archivable and citable.
This post is not complete.
