This discussion is putting the cart before the horse.

So far there has been no thorough discussion / documentation of the current
blog post formats being used on the *Web* today (i.e. in XHTML) on the wiki.

Coming up with names and voting on them is a waste of theoretical thinking
without the proper background research to back it up.

If you really want to advance a blog post format, first document current


*and* formats (with examples of them as well)


And then please try experimenting with ideas on your own blog (feel free to
post your URLs here) before proposing any.
