Maybe. The use.perl.org blogs probably just need to be promoted a bit
more. For a long time, some of the admins refused to use the word
'blog' to describe any of the content. They used 'journal' instead,
and that really hurt the search. Search for 'perl journals' and you'll
see what i mean.

I realize this is getting a bit far afield of the main topic.

The relevance to -advocacy (for me) is that we should encourage some
experimentation, and the current growth in domains and lists is a
really good thing.
