Perhaps everyone can post to their own OWASP and personal blogs, but we
could repost to owasp.blogspot.com - the "official OWASP Blog (for now)" -
if individual authors would like it to be reposted at owasp.blogspot.com?

We have registered owasp.gr and have it redirecting to the greek
chapter right from the very first moment of its creation. IT has been
very useful for us when promoting OWASP locally as one can type in a
single URL and have all the info directly in Greek. Subdomains sound
great too!

Btw we also keep owasp.wordpress.com (blog.owasp.gr redirects to it)
as a Greek chapter blog, although we haven't been able to find the
time lately to keep it updated. Apart from Greek chapter and AppSec
news we also put up local info-sec news as up to now nothing similar
exists in Greece.

I believe that OWASP should have a strong presence on "social
networks" so we should go for blogs. IMHO a blog should be updated
around 2-3 times a week; more is usually too much information for
someone and less makes you soon lose interest. Thus, having everything
put on owasp.blogspot.com may create an overdose of posts. On the
other hand it all depends on how often people want/can post.

OWASP.blogspot.com - my hope was that many of us would post interesting

few years now, and would love more participants.
