  1. A blog with no blogroll and (I’m just predicting) no expectation that posters will engage with folks in the comments is not very … bloggish, though, is it? The content is all very interesting and high quality, and that’s great, but a column by any other name is not necessarily a blog post if you consider blogs to be defined by interactivity rather than as performance.
