Nah, dont merge it with the main blog, would be better as a seperate blog where certain DC members/coders have a posting account where they can post about any thing they want such as their personal project updates, small tutorials, tips for apps, etc. and then all the posts from the members would be aggregated together making the blog index and content. Since there would be a few coders/writers, things could range from regex, mod_rewrite, to svn, web dev, seo, software dev, etc. ect. in relatively small time..
Great minds think alike
So if some one ends up on this new blog (after seeking what ever they wanted), good chance they'll check out a few other posts and eventually find
their way to the main DC site.. any ways, isn't it just blog just for members, so it doesn't matter if it directly relates to the "best of blog" or the main DC site, it's just a small home where those members can post if they want to right?
