Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email email@example.com.
While its not hard to get to the (official Magento) blog, most websites have at the very least news snippets on the front page, if not the most recent whole article. Wouldn’t it make sense to put something from the blog on the front page?
Maybe some blocks that have latest forum posts, most recent blog posts, etc
