So I'm watching the blog on cross-validated try to get off the ground. Could you create a set of badges for posting stories in the site-specific blog?
- [Fresh Ink] First accepted blog post
- [Quick Quill] 20 accepted blog posts
- [Iron Pen] 50 accepted blog posts
Implicit in this request is my desire for a more automated blog submission mechanism, as Stack Exchange runs Blog Overflow ... hopefully this wouldn't be impossible someday. But in the mean time, perhaps just noting which users contributed to a given blog post and then awarding it to the site-specific linked account.
