Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm not even sure this is the right place to ask this question, but here I go anyway.

I am quite confused after reading the FAQ of the different websites on the Stack Exchange network, all stating you should not ask questions regarding websites.

I wanted to ask whether anybody knew of a good place to publish "blog"-like articles which would provide a permanent public link to refer too, without the hassle of creating an entire blog for a single article.

My question will instead be: "Where should I ask such a question?"

Probably nowhere on the SE network is this an on-topic question. – Michael Petrotta Aug 26 '11 at 2:54 should be okay. But not on Stack Exchange – random Aug 26 '11 at 3:10
Web Applications would probably be the place to ask questions about using a particular such service, but asking people to recommend one to you would likely be as off-topic there as anywhere else. – hammar Aug 26 '11 at 3:31
+1 for actually reading the FAQs – Brad Mace Aug 26 '11 at 4:07
@bemace: thanks – ChrisSE Aug 26 '11 at 4:13
@hammar: I thought about it, but since the question is not on one and one only webapps, I guess it's not allowed – ChrisSE Aug 26 '11 at 4:17
@random: Thanks for the suggestion, it looks alright though not exactly what I was looking for. Maybe, in the mean time... – ChrisSE Aug 26 '11 at 4:17

Not that they all see a ton of action, but I would recommend asking in either:

That said, I'm not sure there exists a website within the Stack Exchange community where this sort of solicitation for opinion would be welcomed.

Trying to phrase it as carefully as possible, you might get traction on the Web Applications site, but I think you'd need to beg (and cite this discussion) to prevent the mods from closing it...

On the Tavern, Sathya advise me to check platforms such as Tumblr, Posterous or friendfeeds. Though they don't seem to fully correspond to what I am looking for, it might be a good start – ChrisSE Aug 26 '11 at 7:30
Yep. Sorry that I can't be of more help. I only use Movable Type for blogging & that only for private blogs viewable/hosted only on my laptop <-- more of an idea organiser. – M. Tibbits Aug 26 '11 at 7:34
I marked this as answered though it did not solve my original problem, to thanks M. Tibbits for his help on the matter. If it interest anyone, I went for a private post on Tumblr (I had to create an account, mind you) and shared the link. Did the trick, I suppose. Thanks again – ChrisSE Aug 29 '11 at 3:12
