Why are important (or what is criteria?) announcements made in the blog and not on corresponding meta sites?
I don't like the blog format. I do like Q&A where important problems are risen as upvoted answers.
It's not using Stack Exchange authentication, I can't trust comments there, nor someone else would to me.
Talking specifically about this blog entry, those share buttons on top and detailed author description on the bottom... It feels like a "sweet PR lie" to me (compared to a meta post, which I immediately trust), while the problem is well defined and a blog article contains links to actual Stack Exchange meta posts.
Why not posting all announcements on meta? Why posting them in the blog?
Is it only because there is https://stackoverflow.blog/ and it will be completely empty without announcements? I fail to see there useful articles, am I blind?
Another point: if it would be on meta, then I could give a useful comment. No way I am going to comment anything on that blog page, even if it would be possible normally (but it's not).
