The New MX Linux Offical Blog

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 5:43 pm

The Dev Team has set up an official blog site:

https://mxlinux.org/blog

As the blog's first post indicates, the purpose of the blog is to provide a place and a voice for MX Linux to announce significant events such as releases, development, etc. No comments are possible on the Blog itself, but blog posts will be duplicated in this Forum so that community members will have the chance to express reactions, ask questions and so forth.

There is an rss feed for it that can be set up using your browser by clicking the orange symbol in the bottom right corner of the page, or with any dedicated reader (news feed) and most email programs (I have it in Thunderbird). The feed to use is this:

https://mxlinux.org/blog/feed
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

This is great news for me as it makes it easy to find highlights that I can add to /r/MXLinux without having to troll through every forum post.

It will be good for tech journalists too because they are always looking for a quick and easy way to report Linux news. I'll bet that we will see an increase in mentions of MX online once they find the new blog.

Do you have any ideas about publicizing it so they can find it?

NP, happy to help in my small way.

Probably the best way is to make up a "press release" kind of e-mail with lots of glowing praise for MX and include a direct link to the blog and rss feed. Then send it out to all the sites mentioned in this thread and any others you can think of.

In short, get their attention, then make it as easy as possible for them to follow you.

Then the hard part -- make sure you keep the blog up to date with fresh and relevant content :)
