If you are interested in writing blog posts for GHC, you will have to tag each post appropriately and determine the custom URL for an RSS feed with only those posts. Luckily, if you use one of the more popular blogging services, this should be pretty simple.
The tag you want to use will include ghc plus the year of the conference. For instance, in 2011, it will be ghc11. You can add other tags to your post as desired; just make sure to include this one as well.
If you use Blogger, you can get the URL by adding a little bit extra to the end of your RSS feed. The format for the feed is as follows:
