On all the SE pages, the blog link is marked with the "new" banner.
The blog is active for quite a long now, and I don't think it deserves the "new" banner anymore.
EDIT Thanks to the notes here, I realize that "new" means that there are new entries and not that the blog itself is new. Well, at least for me this distinction wasn't clear without additional clarification. Maybe changing this to count of entries in the past 24 hours will be more intuitive.
