What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

The Super User blog is an interesting read and is a good way to highlight interesting topics within their community.

I think Stack Overflow would gain at least as much from having its own showcase on discussions of interest such as "Question of the Week", analysis of a particular hot topic, humourous discussion threads on questions or chats, or other such material.

I'd say there is plenty of material available on a weekly basis that could serve as a topic subject matter, but is there enough interest within the community to sustain a blog on a weekly basis, and do people feel that a blog would add to the community?

You're in luck! Rebecca Chernoff just posted a blog.stackoverflow.com article announcing a new site to organize community blogs and help a community get their blog started. The site is:

http://blogoverflow.com/

... and there is a Getting Started article to get you going. This certainly is the place to get it going, but it's going to need some definition and committed contributors to get moving.

That's all nice and stuff, but there doesn't appear to be anything to be done with it. All I see is "hey, talk amongst yourselves about it" and that's it. Also, what about blog.stackoverflow.com? Is that going to be released back to SO? –  Won't Jun 27 '11 at 13:58
    
@Won't its meant as the Area51 for Stack Exchange blogs. Once the community has proven they can keep the blog running, they get 'promoted' to the blog.*.SE domain AFAIK –  Ivo Flipse Jun 30 '11 at 15:53
    
@IvoFlipse: I know how to create a proposal on A51, but there does not appear to be such an option on BOF. –  Won't Jun 30 '11 at 16:36

The analogy doesn't stretch that far. If you want a blog for SO, follow the guidelines mentioned in the blog post and this MSO post. You can always ask me for more information on chat :-) –  Ivo Flipse Jun 30 '11 at 17:14
