yes, I always spin things a bit ahead of me and my own abilities
I basically was thinking of how a normal thesis paper is build up:
First, you have the individual pages with numbered words¹ and on the bottom the footnotes².
¹ Duden: Substantiv, Neutrum - kleinste selbstständige sprachliche Einheit
² which explain the numbered words shortly or short-reference the source, in a small size
.... this would be the blog entries.
Then, at the end of the thesis, you have the literature list in which everything is listed properly, often categorized by importance (main, secondary, supporting) when there is a lot to list. In a blog, there will be a lot to list so it makes sense to think about categories/tags for the references if one want to display them in an overview, I think.
So when you display all references on a static page, they would be sorted and not chaotic. In my case, all references regarding Streetwork would be together, all references regarding Family Therapy would be together, ect. That's basically all I meant with "tagging" the references. If there are no such tags, the reference overview would become extremely chaotic in the long run. I could even create a "literature" link in the menu bar and sort the references into tag-related subpages. Though, this is only an issue if an overview is wished in the first place, of course - I would want it.
The other thought then was to be able to click on a reference in that overview and have all entries listed in which it is used. But that's probably a bit much asked for and maybe only interesting for a small number of users now that I think about it ^^;
