Not blogs as a whole; that's was just a cheap way to get attention. 

Why I'm against incorporating a blog on ruby-lang

* Blogs by nature are personal voices. ruby-lang.org should focus on
objective features of Ruby, not some people's point of view or pet
* Many people are blogging about Ruby. Not all of them deserve to be
on ruby-lang.org.  Who picks, and by what criteria? It reeks of
* Blogs require devotion, a steady flow of content.  Things look stale
when they have an expiration date next to them. There will be enough
things to look after as it is
* Blog content is easier to get in any number of other ways than going
to the home page of a programing language
