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:


... 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? – user1228 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. – user1228 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
