@joeld This is extremely interesting! For a while, I was hosting my "blog" on a mediawiki wiki and there, there's no need to organize it by date other than the fact that I did. I named each entry "YYYY-MM-DD: Entry Title". It certainly encouraged more active referencing the other posts, and inserting media. Most blog software encourages the "blog" format but a more traditional CMS might let you more freely categorize and associate articles.
@coryw the big goal was for a dual web/printed book, which I’ve figured out how to do thanks to Pollen (https://thelocalyarn.com/excursus/secretary/posts/web-books.html) but since Pollen gives you a full programming environment your imagination is the only limit to how you want things organized.
@coryw the more concrete innovations I’ve settled on are
- not every post needs a title
- “comments” get equal status with their parent posts in certain contexts (I.e. intermingled with actual posts in the RSS feed)—they can be used more like follow up notes this way
