As there were some mentions of updating the blog design and tools in the recent community blog, it reminded me of write.as. Have you considered using write.as or write freely (the software powering write.as) for the blog?
I am not a big fan of the current blog visual design and I also have problems following the blog. The Discord way of notifying about new blog posts doesn’t suit me much, so I would welcome some rss feed (The good-old-universal way of following news). Write.as also uses ActivityPub to interact with the federated social networks (called Fediverse) which is a great way of following your favourite projects.
TLDR; why not use write.as? And please add a Rss feed.
