This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Just to be sure: Time Machine is not a revision control system. – Arjan Dec 2 '10 at 20:32

Unfortunately, Time Machine preferences only allow you to set which drives/folders you want to ignore, not which ones you want to back up. You can get the behavior you want by excluding all the folders you don't want backed up, but it's kind of cumbersome. I suggest using SuperDuper or some kind of VCS if you only want to incrementally back up one folder.
