[A meta comment I forgot to add earlier] I currently, personally think that:
When a researcher or research organisation is writing a set of posts that “fit together”, they should often consider also writing an “overview post” (like this one) which gives readers context on what this set of posts is and why it exists
These overview posts should be published before the set of posts
(This particular case is unusual because parts of the overall research project had been completed before I joined the organisation or thought to make “overview posts”)
These overview posts should be ~300-1000 words
The same sets of posts should probably also have “research summaries” (for example), but those would be published later and fill a different role
The same sets of posts should probably also be made into sequences, and the sequence description and the overview post might be similar
I’d be interested in people’s thoughts on how useful they think that’d be and whether they’d suggest tweaking the approach.
