Historically blog.o.o used to be our only blog outlet, so almost
anything would go in:

"OpenStack Events Sponsorship Webinar"
"New Foundation Gold Members & Corporate Sponsors"
"HP Announces Private Beta Program for OpenStack Cloud"
"2016 OpenStack T-Shirt Design Contest"

What Josh wants is a curated technical blog, so if we reused blog.o.o
for this (and I think it's a good idea), we'd likely want to have a bit
more rules on what's appropriate.
