Any one have interest in getting our blog back up? We haven't published anything in over 3 years.

No need to retype all this - See: Programmers Community Blog 2.0

We still have our Trello board loaded with post ideas....

    If you did this it wouldn't be hosted by SE. They've recently shut down all the community blogs. Most just exist as static pages now.

  • @ChrisF That's I'll cover the hosting cost. We still have access to Wordpress.

  • Cool. Just so everybody knows what the score is. I do believe that you can get branding assets from SE though.

  • @ChrisF stackexchange.com/blogs seems to have some recent post from SIFI & LaTeX .. where does it say it was shut down?

    How is this going to differ and differentiate itself from the existing unofficial chat community blog? Jan 3, 2017 at 16:33
  • @JörgWMittag: I thought that one was owned by MichaelT. He doesn't even have an account here anymore. Jan 3, 2017 at 20:23

    @Morons, the SF&F (thesffblog.com/about) and LaTex blogs (tex-talk.net/about) are actually on separate sites from the StackExchange network. It looks like SE is still willing to link to new blog posts on those sites though: stackexchange.com/blogs Jan 3, 2017 at 21:11

    @RobertHarvey: the latest published article is by him, but the latest was just 21 hours ago by shagie. Jan 3, 2017 at 23:21

    As far as I know, "The Whiteboard" blog is deliberately not tied to this site, and it was created after "we" stopped participating actively here (these days I only show up for HNQs and hot meta questions). So if those of you who are still here want a proper blog that is intended to represent this site, then that's what'll differentiate it.

I'm one of the original writers on board. Personally I think it's a good and generous idea to build the blog.

I'm ready to help again, so count me in.

  • Apparently its not even an option, see : meta.softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/8323/…

    @Morons You can copy the pages from the Blog Overflow blog and republish the articles when you start a new Software Engineering blog. You don't need a data dump, even though it would be convenient. Just start the new blog, we can later figure out how to make it the “official” Software Engineering community blog.

  • @amon: I'm not sure it could be an "official" page or not. We could still write about it. The content in Software Engineer is quite good: having a blog which, for example, just to go in-depth for high-scored/hot questions seems interesting. Jan 10, 2017 at 2:49
  • @Morons another promising idea popped up recently: Proposal for Leveraging the Main Site for “Blog Posts” and Other Extended Content
