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.,
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 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.
