Some silly questions about Wittgenstein's Tractatus

Is Wittgenstein’s Tractatus really a philosophical treatise like other philosophical works of the great philosophers? Or is it notes cobbled together from his journals like his other published works—a document of a mind on fire and precursor of what was to come in his later writing? And what if his journals had been nothing but a blog? Would anybody care?

I wrote thousands of words yesterday just to arrive at those silly questions.
