I guess you could focus on using Guix to develop Rails applications, and
it would make a lot of sense as a blog post!

I think it would make sense to have sections like “Developing in
language X or framework Y with Guix”.  It would be useful because it
would answer probably some of the main questions for newcomers (“how do
I need to adjust my workflow when I switch to Guix?”).
