I take it that Graham has taken off the table, until the
blog has proven itself.

I think there's another option that may actually be best.  That's to

community blog.  

- It can easily follow the blog to whatever server it's hosted on (including should this need to change.

- It's not tied to another site or project (as with

- It could reasonably be the blogs' address indefinitely.

- It indicates seriousness about the intended longevity of the blog.
