A year??
I don't understand this reserve.  This is not a financial contract,
paid research or something like that.
What are you afraid of?  That the blog will die and make LilyPond
project look silly?  That's a valid concern but the precautions you
mention seem exaggerated to me.

Agreed.  However, i think that it would make sense to use some
reasonable means to increase it's chances of success.  In this case
reasonable means could be connecting the blog with the LilyPond
website (i.e. put a "blog" entry in menu bar, regardless
of whether that would point to,, or whatever).

I already have a dozen sketches for posts, so i can promise at least
one post per week till the end of summer.  I hope that more people
will join by then; we have a dozen active contibutors so if people
write one post each month (or two) it should amount to a fairly active
