A digital garden is an online space at the intersection of a notebook and a blog, where digital gardeners share seeds of thoughts to be cultivated in public. Contrary to a blog, where articles and essays have a publication date and start decaying as soon as they are published, a digital garden is evergreen: digital gardeners keep on editing and refining their notes.
Source. In other words, each blog post is an unfinished note that will be updated over and over.
I rarely if ever have updated any of the posts. The few times that I've changed anything have been small corrections such as grammar, or a missed detail in some paragraph, never changing anything of real importance to the reader.
Also, soon after I began writing, I realized "why would anyone share anything I write if it might change in significant ways after they've shared it". It's a reasonable concern about writing in public and growing a digital garden.
