Any PPMC member can simply ask infrastructure@ to create a blog for the 
podling (I think that's the right list), specifying the preferred name 
for the blog.  The PPMC should manage a list of PPMC members who have 
write access to the blog, and ensure that comments get moderated.

The advantage is that the blogs.a.o namespace is stable, so there's no 
need to change the URL when the podling graduates.  Note, however, that 
any posts should include a clear note that the podling is still 
incubating (i.e., don't sell ourselves as a top level project of the ASF 

All committers may be interested in putting their own blogs onto Planet 
Apache as well (it has aggregators for both blogs.a.o and any 
committer's blogs):
