WordPress wiki plugin? (or: It’s like blogging, but different)

As you might imagine (with what 4 posts under my belt in two weeks?) I’m trying to figure out what it is I’m going to do with this site. Or, perhaps better stated, how I’m going to do it.

I like the blog format, always have.  But there’s always been a problem with it and that’s that posts sort of drift off in to the past and out of site (heh, see what I did there? I kill me. “Someone ought to.” … “You shut up. we’re not doing that here.” … “Who’s we? Frog in yer pocket?”) forever.

Let’s take that HHC post I hit publish on less than 5 minutes ago.  That’s fine. It ain’t art, nor is it literature, or particularly erudite by my standards.  But what I’d much rather do than let it drift off is be able to actively change it as needed. Expand it, break it apart into smaller pieces as needed.

It starts to sound more like a wiki (in the original c2.com sense, wikipedia) than a blog.  So maybe the thing to do is get a WordPress wiki plugin (that models itself after basic wikis rather than “group collaboration sites”), install it and see how it goes.

I might have to actually write the thing myself, which wouldn’t really break my heart, truth be told.

We’ll see. I’m gonna go poke around some.
