My suggestion would be to keep doing it for yourself and the few readers it may have, and just hope that R3 will appear reasonably soon and will be good and make your time in the wilderness, so-to-speak, worth it. Such things take time to gain momentum. I'd say re-evaluate it after you've been blogging a year. Now there either will be a bit of buzz around REBOL when R3 appears, or there won't be. But let's assume there is, in which case you'll already have a site and blog up and running that'll both benefit from the buzz as well as being able to contribute to it. There's no guarantees of success when you start something like you're doing. A few of us here have done similar things. (Petr for instance partly ran a Czech/English news-site about the Amiga in that computer's dying days. Nothing they could do either about the way the Commodore was steering the ship!) Now you mightn't get any obvious support from RT, but there's nothing wrong with independant news sources/sites, (and they're in fact the preferred type), and it's nice to feel you can openly speak your mind, yes? Much harder to serve two masters - as in readers as well as the company you're blogging about. -- Carl Read.
