I'm reorganizing my website to a more wiki-like structure. I hope this helps me write more, treating entries as personal notes rather than longform blog posts.

This is actually pretty easy to reorganize. However, it's going to obliterate the existing rss feeds.

I'm thinking of making the homepage a taxonomical index.

@stephen I haven't figured out how to handle those either. At first I tried to make an update post in an RSS feed pointing over to whatever note had been meaningfully updated, but I'm not sure that's the best way.

@maya I may create a more general feed of "featured" content that's unlinked from the actual structure of my wiki. Otherwise my ssg generates separate feeds for each section.

@stephen I'm interested in doing this myself, but I'm not really sure how I'd start. Any tips?

@nihilazo I always take a content-first approach. Tag your content and figure out what type of structure emerges.

I'm using a ssg that has taxonomies (tagging) built in, so it's pretty straightforward.
