This is how we iterated over web content managment to arrive at what we now call blogging, in the late 90s.
I wrote down the steps it took to update a page on my website. When we started, there were a huge number of steps, and you had to hold two models in your head, one for the web version, and the other for the content version, and know how to translate from one to the other.
Once we realized this was the problem, we determined to coalesce it into one view. And that made it possible to reduce editing a post to three steps from several dozen.
And we did it without sacrificing depth. This is a highly configurable system, for people who like to dabble a bit, all the way to professional designers and developers. And it's easier to get to My First Post than it has ever been before.
