#7245: Improve visibility of Developer Blog on Developer homepage
 Reporter:  ironprogrammer  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  enhancement     |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal          |  Milestone:
Component:  Developer Hub   |   Keywords:
 Visibility of the link to the "[https://make.wordpress.org/core/2022/02/25
 /proposal-to-start-a-news-blog-on-developer-wordpress-org/ developer news
 blog]" at https://developer.wordpress.org/news/ could be improved.

 Calling it the "Developer Blog" has me instinctively (and repeatedly 😞)
 entering `https://developer.wordpress.org/blog/` (see #7089), and until
 today I completely missed the existence of its tiny link at the bottom of
 the Developer hub page 😅. A few times I have ultimately turned to a
 search engine to find the location of the "wordpress developer blog". (I'm
 not proud of my forgetfulness; just sharing my experience.)

 == Suggestion
 I'd like to propose that the blog become a "first-class citizen" of the
 Developer hub, and have its own link, icon, and description in the main
 content area of the page. The blog's content is the result of considerable
 effort, and is growing into a rich and ever more important resource --
 it's deserving of better visibility / easier discoverability! 👍🏻

 An additional idea (or alternative if "news" shouldn't be a primary
 "resource") would be to surface Developer News in the main navigation.
 This blog's slug and design mimic that used by
 https://wordpress.org/news/, but only the latter gets prominence in a nav
