Mark Simonson is a former art director and graphic designer who now makes his living designing typefaces — several of which are Typographica selections.
If you can’t post comments or feedback is it really a blog?
Yup. Nothing there to suggest comment posting is an essential element.
One thing preventing feedback/commenting

You can’t argue with the wiki! But under that definition my news page would be classed as a blog. Not something I’d ever considered. Not sure if it’s a good or bad thing.
