I like the blog here. Or I mostly do.

two blog posts shown

It used to provide useful network wide information, or some relevant programming information.

Now it feels like there is 'content for content's sake' (no offence to the blog writers, I'm just not your target audience). This to me, feels like noise, that gets in the way of signal. I was happy for a blog once every 6-8 weeks (or longer).

Is there some way to filter out these blog posts in some way?

Or should I ignore all of them instead of checking each and everyone one for it's personal relevance to me.

    @ShadowThePrincessWizard Nah, the "bulletin" tag means they show up on all tech sites... but you are correct that we do some targeting in the tagging. It only shows up network-wide if it's bearing the "announcements" tag. – Catija Dec 17 '19 at 13:49
  • @Catija cheers, didn't know that and checked only on arqade and movies. :/ – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Dec 17 '19 at 13:50

    "should I ignore all of them [or] checking each and everyone one" That's the choice currently. – Trilarion Dec 17 '19 at 23:23

    Seems to be systematic of Stack Exchange, Inc. being more interested in revenue than providing a useful product. – Andrew Grimm Dec 18 '19 at 1:03

I feel that if they were tagged, searchable, and otherwise had some of the decent features that the rest of the QA site has (or a better-implementation of a blog), then "noise" would be less of an issue.
