Thanks for encouraging more blogging volunteers.   I'm happy to help
with the editing as well.

Everyone should note that a blog post does not need to be lengthy.  A
mix of short update and longer expository pieces are great.  Having a
regular heartbeat of communications is the important thing.

And if you want to help, but don't know what to write about, then
consider this:  Offer to do an interview, via email or Skype, with
another project member, or an extension author, or an OpenOffice book
author.  Turn that interview into a blog post.  This helps promote the
project and the ecosystem.

Regards,

-Rob
