An Incremental Blog

I understand blogs as a quite flexible form of writing and publishing on the web, and consequently, there are posts such as this one, that push the boundaries of blog style. This post is in a blog format, but its main purpose is to be a landing page for blogs; i.e., the index.html page; and as another purely functional purpose, it is an index of all the posts in this series in a reverse chronological order:

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 being final. I think they should not be generally incremental, but there are definite exceptions in which case it should be clearly indicated. One example is posting a blog in development. A hope is that overtime the majority of blog posts will become complete and stable, and thus archivable and citable.

This post is not complete.
